September Psalms - Saturday 15th September 2018
To coincide with '"Doors Open Day" we, Pollokshields Church, will present a reading of the book of the Psalms.
From 11 -4 pm we shall be reading aloud through the psalter with various members of the church - you - taking tums at reading utilising different versions of the Bible and speaking from different parts of the church.
All are welcome to come and listen for as long or short a period as they like and to enjoy the wonderful architecture and stained glass of the building itself.
Musical settings of the psalms will be interspersed among the readings / our organist Uam Devlin will play some musical settings of the psalms between 1-2 pm ( see poster for timings to be confirmed).
Worship at 11am on Sunday 16th will also include a focus on the psalms in word and music and the church will be open thereafter for those who wish to enjoy its aesthetic beauty.

To get involved in this latest venture in engaging with our community through art and worship or to help with the stewarding of those who attend please speak to Mary Morrison in the first instance.
Names of those willing to read aloud the text should be appended to the sheet in the hall for the hour you wish to be Involved - each hour may involve something different and so we will have a brief planning meeting on Thursday 13th at 7.30pm in hall.
