The UCKG HelpCentre in Glasgow resumed its normal programme of public services of prayer from 6pm on Friday 11 December, while also retaining some virtual services for people who are vulnerable or self-isolating. This followed the end of Scotland’s three-week lockdown and Glasgow’s transfer from tier four to tier three, as the rate of infections fell.
Pastor Fagner, who is the pastor at the HelpCentre on Shettleston Road, Glasgow G32 has been welcoming members back to the regular themed services and meetings, which take place daily.
The schedule comprises services in the church at 6pm in Portuguese and at 7:30pm in English on weekdays, with the exception of Thursdays. The themes for prayers are as follows:
Monday – Independence Project (prayer for economic security)
Tuesday – Healing
Wednesday – Spiritual Growth
Thursday – Love Therapy (8pm) is streamed from UCKG’s headquarters.
Friday – Spiritual Cleansing.
A full Sunday programme comprises services in English at 7:30am and 10am (Sunday Service/Empowerment) and at 12Pm in Portuguese. In addition two further activities, ‘Breaking the Habit’ which deals with addictions – at 4pm – and Bible Study – at 6pm – are streamed from the UCKG’s headquarters in London.
Virtual services will continue to be streamed twice a week from the UCKG’s headquarters. The Wednesday service at 7.30pm focuses on Spiritual Growth, while the Sunday/Empowerment service is at 10am. Both can be accessed via *Liberty Radio and *Univer Video.
Pastor Fagner said: “We have a small but very active congregation who are very pleased to be back in church, and who will be following Scotland’s tight restrictions to the letter.”
This means social distancing, except between members of the same household, wearing face coverings for mutual protection, and use of the hand gel provided. No more than 50 people can attend a service indoors.
