Our Church services live via Zoom
 
Live services of worship via Zoom are being offered throughout February at 10.00 am.  To access these services it is easier if Zoom is downloaded on your device.
 
The link to the service will be emailed to you separately by Bill – this is what you click on in order to access the service.
You can do this from any time from the back of 9.00 am – you will be admitted from the “waiting room” (this may take a few moments).                                                                              
Once you have been accepted from the waiting room, please close your video and mute yourself – should you wish, this is an opportunity to make a cup of tea or coffee.                                                                         
Just before 10am, reverse the procedure – rejoin by video and unmute yourself, in readiness for the service to begin.
 
If you prefer not to use the link, you can join by using the Meeting ID (which is 983 983 4247).  You will also need the passcode – this will be emailed separately by Bill.  (This is for the security reasons.)
 
After the service there will be a chance for a catch up, just as there would be after a normal in person service.
 
We will continue these services throughout the present lockdown, and we look forward to welcoming and being with you every Sunday in February.

From the Pastoral Group
Remember, the Pastoral Group are here for you, as far as restrictions allow, keeping up with Members and Friends across Sidlaw Parish. Please tell us if you hear of anyone in need of our outreach.
 

MNMT Kirk Session will meet 2nd March at 7.30 pm via Zoom.

During Lent Monifieth Parish Church is running a Lent programme available on Facebook and via https://www.mpcos.org.uk/lent/

Our Interim Moderator is hosting an online Coffee morning or rather Afternoon Tea (after suitable times were discussed!) on Thursday 25th February at 2pm. The link required is the same link used for the service. We look forward to seeing you there!  

As it is often said, if you have Zoom you have the ability to host meetings. This is a fantastic opportunity as it provides a way to speak with friends face to face, as well as enabling groups that usually hold meetings within our church buildings/their homes to meet together still.

Wellbeing Café

Rev. Fiona Reynolds, Monifieth, would like you to know about an online Wellbeing Café, open to all living in Carnoustie, Monifieth and Sidlaw.   The “Café” hopes to support people who are socially isolated, or feel lonely, or just want to have a blether with others in these difficult times.

Do you know of anyone who would benefit from meeting others remotely, through this Online Café?   The link to joining the Café will be gladly shared with all who are interested.   For those who may have difficulty getting online, support will be provided.   The Café meets fortnightly and the next meeting is on Tuesday 16th February at 11.00 am.  Those “getting together” at the Café can enjoy chat, quizzes, guest speakers, virtual cooking sessions and more!
