We are pleased to announce that the church will be open for public worship from Sunday 6th September. We hope to see you back in church soon, although there are some restrictions and guidelines that we must follow.
Please remember to Phone 07943 585949 between 12noon and 2pm EVERY Saturday to book your place for Sunday.
Wallneuk North hopes that everyone is staying safe during these uncertain times. We would like to thank all the NHS staff and frontline workers who are working so hard and risking their lives to care for us all at this time.
Some of our church members have written messages of thanks and pinned them to the cross displayed outside our church. If anyone would like to add their own message please get in touch and we can help arrange this.
Dear Members, & friends of the Wallneuk North Church,
Greetings in the name of the Father, Son & the Holy Spirit, Amen.
I thank God for the re-opening our church building for worship after the lockdown situation. All are welcome to book a seat every Saturday from 12 to 2pm. Phone number for booking is mentioned on our church website.
Now our presbytery has extended our Parish boundaries including Ferguslie Park after closing down the St Ninian's Church. So we needed more elders to cover our parish for all North End of Paisley.
On 13th September I have ordained two new elders Ian Williams & Grant Hume. On the same Sunday I did a baptism service at the Garden of Baby Alba Patton's Granny at 2pm, because we were not allowed to have more than 50 people in the church. Now we are negotiating our union with the Sandyford church.
After a lockdown situation, God is calling us for revival just as God called Israelites, after the Babylonian captivity. In the Book of Ezra we can see some guide lines how they accepted the challenge.
The first Challenge was to Leave the Familiar:-
God used Cyrus, king of Persia who allow captive Israelites to go back to their home land. This return was for leaving the familiar ground of Babylon, the place where they grew up. Just imagine those who were taken in captivity 70 years ago. Some of them would have been alive at this time. Now Babylon was essentially their home, and they had no real memory of Israel. So they had to leave their familiar surroundings of Babylon and take a 700-mile trek to Jerusalem to fulfil God’s call to revival. Now We need to leave some of the familiar traditions and whatever is holding us back from moving into God’s calling upon our lives. This may involve changing our style of worship or our church building as well, & other familiar habits. People normally, come to church on Sunday, sing some songs, drop some money into the offering plates, listen to the message, and then they’re off doing their own thing the rest of the week.
God’s call is for us to step out of the familiar and begin to stretch & share our faith with others. We need to grow in our own faith so we can walk in God’s Path of righteousness. If we want to experience revival then we must be willing to step away from the familiar and then step deeper into our service, pastoral care, evangelism, and commitment to God.
We need to move out of our comfort zones and move by faith into the unknown to accomplish what the Spirit of God desires. But how? It can only happen when the Holy Spirit moves upon our hearts as we read in Ezra 1:5. Notice it says, God moved their spirits. They received the Holy Spirit to leave their familiar ground and begin to do what God had called them to do. This is the same thing that we need if we’re ever going to move by faith from the familiar into a new level of spiritual maturity and activity. God will take us to places we’ve never been before, and shows us to do things we’ve never seen or done before.
In the Ezra chapter one, God encouraged everyone to share their gifts, skills, including their silver and gold, besides the freewill offerings for the house of God.
They pay attention to what others were saying, but rather to what the Lord said, which was to build His temple. Sometimes we are shy to share our gifts. But even we are gifted with beautiful smile we are called to join the welcome team. We have to stop worrying about what others may say or think, and move forward with God’s calling upon our lives and upon the church. And so, let’s move forward by faith and expect God to do miracles, & revive us again. If we expect great things from God let's do great things for Him. It’s God’s desire to pour out His Spirit and to fill us with His power. That’s what we need to ask God. Jesus said, that if we as sinful people know, how to give good gifts to our children, how much more will our heavenly Father give to those who ask the Holy Spirit.
You are all in my thoughts & prayer. If anybody wants I pastoral visit please feel free to contact your elder to call me directly.
