Tillicoultry Parish Church aims to be a church of the whole community; a place where those who have faith and those who have yet to find it or renew it can come together as a family of God's children; a place where all will be received with tolerance, understanding and friendship.
NEW KITCHEN APPEAL
At our Kirk Session meeting last week, we were looking forward to a time when our congregation will be able to gather again. From the middle of 2019, we took the decision not to serve anything other than teas, coffees and biscuits in our hall because our kitchen is not up to food preparation standards. Last week, we heard of the report and plans for what we could do and took the decision to go ahead with a new kitchen, fully compliant with food safety standards and suitable for use by our organisations.
We have taken the decision because we believe that it is important that our congregation will be able to gather to share in fellowship in the future and we see our social activities as a very important part of that, not only for the church family but also the wider community.
The cost of the kitchen will be in the region of £30,000, and we have decided to open a Kitchen Appeal Fund to raise some of the monies. The balance will be made up from reserves.
If you would like to contribute to that fund, it can be done by sending a donation, marked Kitchen Fund, to the manse. If you would prefer to do so by bank transfer, then please contact us for account details.
If you can make a donation, we would be very grateful for your help as we begin to plan and build for the future.
NIGHT VISION a short reflection every Thursday evening from 7.0 pm
Morning Worship 25 October
In recent months, our Kirk Session consulted the congregation on the best time to have worship on a Sunday. I don't think we could ever come up with the solution we now have - enjoy our short act of worship on video each Sunday morning. click here

Join us in this very special Prayer
Our monthly Congregational prayer for October is below and we would encourage you to use it each day.
Just a thought to ponder on this day
when what wethought could never happen, has
and public worship has been suspended:
Christ’s Church is not closed!
The doors may be shut and locked
the lights out in the building up the street
But the Church isn’t closed.
We may be told to stay at home, self isolate,
We may be ill or too frail to come,
We may be disillusioned with the institution, or with God
But the Church isn’t closed
The Church cannot close because it is not a building.
The church is YOU, and me, and every child of God
Who feels the tug of His love and senses His presence,
Even in the darkness, even in loneliness,
Even in fear or sorrow.
The Church is open, though the building is closed.
It will stay open as long as His children stay open to God,
And seek his presence wherever they may be
This day Christ says to you,
“I am with you always”.
So take this moment to enjoy his companionship,
To be still, to give thanks and to hand over your cares
And know that you do so in company with God’s family,
not only in our building but all over the world.
