At present, services are largely conducted by one leader each Sunday although members of the congregations share in giving the Scripture Reading from time to time. We sing from CH4 and enjoy a variety of praise from traditional Psalms to new songs and hymns. Our new songs work well to familiar tunes and Scottish tunes and we can also learn completely new praise. A’Chleit Church and Clachan have an organ and organist while Gigha Church lead praise with a digital hymnal.
If the ferry to Gigha is cancelled due to adverse weather, an Elder always has a service ready and stands in. Gigha also has a new worship leaders’ team which is growing in experience.
*Local Worship Leaders are volunteers from within our congregations who have taken part in a training course to conduct services. There is a team of four experienced Local Worship Leaders. They devise and write their own services and do so to a high standard, often receiving positive feedback from the congregations for sermons which help our understanding of Scripture and its application in our lives. Worship is also often led by a Lay Worship Leader – an Elder trained by the Presbytery of Glasgow who is a former Moderator of the Presbytery of Argyll. All these people are a significant support to our new Minister.
