Welcome to our website and to All Saints Church, Lockerbie. You join us just as we enter the season of Lent which is for us a time of penitence in the weeks leading up to Easter. It is a time which is set aside so that we may reflect on our own sinfulness, and the ways in which we have caused offence to God, and to each other – as we bring to mind the two great commandments of Jesus, Love God, and love your neighbour as yourself. It may be seen that these two commandments are in fact cyclical in that if we love God, we will indeed love our neighbour as he commands us to do; and if we love our neighbour, we will also love God who is the divine presence in each and every one of us. It is a cycle which links heaven and earth. And so this season is truly a gift to us as we use it to reflect on our own way of life and what we can do to amend it so as to bring us closer to Christ as we grow in wisdom and in the knowledge and love of God. All good wishes to you, may you have a good Lent.
You come and you visit our website and we have no idea if you are 5,000 kilometres away or in the next street. Somewhere in between, probably. Well, we are a small but devoted congregation and although I say it myself, I believe we are friendly and welcoming. I think one of the special characteristics of our faith is that if you go to church in a strange place, you should be able to say that you have a ready made body of friends or at least, potential friends in that Christian community. So if you are looking for somewhere to worship God in the Anglican style, in a place where you will be welcomed, be it passing through on holiday, or because you live in this part of Annandale, do come and join us for our main service at 11.15 on Sunday morning, we would love to see you.
Service times are as follows:
Sunday – 11.15 am Sung Eucharist,
Thursday – 4 pm Evening Prayer with discussion and Holy Communion
