Thought for the Week

Thought For The Week

Week Beginning: 7th Feb 2021

When travel about the country can resume, a place worth visiting is the wonderful city of Dundee. A mere stone’s throw away, it is undergoing great and beneficial change. Take time to explore the McManus Galleries with its history of religion in Dundee and of course the V and A museum. Not far from the V and A on the way into town – just beside the Slessor Gardens – there is a lovely path which contains paving slabs celebrating noted people with connections to Dundee. A couple of these bear some explanation.

Mary Anne Baxter (1801-1844) – of the wealthy Baxter linen manufacturing company, Miss Baxter was a deeply religious person who used her wealth for the benefit of many.  A staunch member of the Congregational Church of Scotland, she supported missionary work abroad and good works in Dundee. She gave the city the lovely Baxter Park but more importantly endowed University College Dundee (which became Dundee University). As part of her endowment, she enshrined that the College was for women as well as men.

James Bowman Lindsay (1799-1862) – born near Arbroath, he began work as a linen weaver but, self-taught, soon proved his intellectual worth and began studying at the University of St. Andrews. He made a name for himself in the fields of physics and maths and returned to Dundee to teach and invent, at one point demonstrating a perfectly feasible electric light well before Edison. A deeply religious man, the work closest to his heart was his Pentacontaglossal Dictionary through which he set out to prove the accuracy of the Bible; in the course of this he translated the Lord’s Prayer into fifty languages.

Contemporaries, these two Christians set out to serve our Lord Jesus in different yet worthy ways, in so doing setting an example to all Christians to use their time, talents and money to further Christ’s Kingdom here on earth.

A Welcome From the Congregation

Life is a journey and we at East Neuk Trinity Church  would be very pleased to walk part or all of it with you.

A group of ordinary people with a variety of backgrounds, we do not claim to have all the answers, but we are willing to explore life’s questions with you and to join with you as you celebrate life’s rites of passage: births, wedding, funerals and all that happens in between.

We are committed to make God known in this place through our worship, in the way that we respond, connect and reflect the love of God within our communities.

We acknowledge the physical and spiritual aspects of life, and firmly believe both have to be held together to find fulfilment in this life, and to ensure eternal life.

Living in the present and looking to the future, we aim to be creative and compassionate in our interactions with others, non- judgemental and welcoming to all who come through the doors of our churches and into our wider community.

The congregation of East Neuk Trinity Church welcomes you! We invite you to come and visit our places of Worship , East Neuk Trinity Church and Colinsburgh Town Hall.

Please note dates and times of services, details of which are given on this website and in noticeboards. Each Sunday, forthcoming services are noted on the Order of Service.

You will find us a friendly group of people who are anxious that our church and our community should be open and outgoing. Enjoy your visit with us!
