Weekly Zoom Prayer Meeting

Date: Friday, 10 April 2020
Author: Rev Andrew R Allan

In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, and with the resultant ‘lockdown’ in mind, a weekly prayer meeting has been running each Monday evening since 23rd March.

Using the Zoom Conference System many people can gather ‘virtually’ over the internet to pray for our nation at this unusual and difficult time. 

Since the inaugural meeting each week the numbers attending have risen and now provision is being made to enable up to 500 to tune in.

Organiser Rev James Gracie, Edinburgh, said, “The first week we had around 60 tuning in, but last week we had 100 subscribers at one point during the time we were on air.  It is good to see people from all over Scotland participating and listening in.”  He went on to say, “We’ve had  people from England and other parts of Europe and some from the US also.”  Mr. Gracie further noted, “We are delighted that it is not just people from our denomination that tune in.  We have people from other denominations also.”  “Everyone recognises that the pandemic is a serious matter and the Government, Health Service, and the scientists cannot fully address the matter.  We must call upon the God of heaven and seek His face at this time of national crisis.”

The meeting consists of reading through the metrical Psalter consecutively, prayers and 10-minute Bible addresses from two different ministers each week.


The next prayer meeting will be on Monday 13th April beginning at 7:00 pm and held weekly thereafter until further notice.

All are welcome to join.  Please use the details below to join by the internet or by a normal landline telephone.
