Members of the congregation, practical support activities, UCKG’s London headquarters,

The UCKG HelpCentre in Glasgow is now providing a full schedule of public prayer services online in place of communal worship at the HelpCentre, in compliance with the lockdown. This started on Tuesday 5 January, and runs until the end of the month, subject to review by the Scottish government.

Members of the congregation and the general public are very welcome to attend the online services, which take place six days a week and are being conducted by the local pastor in Glasgow or the bishop in London.

Pastor Fagner, who runs the HelpCentre on Shettleston Road, Glasgow G32 said: “Although a new year is upon us, the fight against the virus continues. It is very important to respect the rules of the lockdown and reduce the transmission of COVID-19. However, this church is observing a Decade of Strength, and our faith will help us to endure these challenging times.”

Online services will be streamed from Glasgow on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, at 6pm in Portuguese and 7:30pm in English. Wednesday and Thursday services will be streamed from the UCKG’s London headquarters, as will all Sunday services.

The themes of services is as follows:

Many people are facing new stresses and difficulties as a result of the pandemic.
