Following a visit by representatives of the URC to Israel and the occupied Palestinian Territories in late 2019 a series of resources has been prepared for use in Advent.
these can be found by following the link below
The ministers of Hamilton Old, St. John’s Churches of Scotland and St. Mary’s Episcopal Church and the United reformed Church have formed a pastorate team.
The first joint service organised by the team will be held in the United Reformed Church, South Park Road on 1st December at 4:00 p.m. This will be followed by a joint service in St. John’s Church of Scotland at 6:00 p.m. Soup and sandwiches will be available in St. John’s between these two services.
The morning service in the United reformed Church is therefore cancelled.

The Prayer Circle is open to members of the three churches of the East Kilbride and Hamilton Cluster.
The suggested time for prayer is Wednesday at 8.00 p.m. Members can either join with the group in person, or join the group by praying at the same time as the wiser group each week.
Requests can be sent to the group organiser – contact details from church secretaries.
Requests for prayer do not need to divulge personal details, but might simply include a persons name, with or without the particular needs of that person.
Passion Play Lanarkshire.
On Saturday 31st March at 2pm volunteer actors from Hamilton’s churches ( and beyond) will perform ‘Resurrection’ a Passion Play telling the story of the final week of Jesus life, at the Bottom Cross, Castle Street. For the last five months people have been learning parts under the direction of Liz Blackman, so that by Easter Saturday they will be able to share the gospel in a creative way, out on the streets, with the people of the local community. Liz came to join us in worship at Hamilton URC in November and told us about the origins of Passion Plays as a way of ordinary people learning the story of Jesus back in the Middle Ages when services were held in Latin. Lindsey has a small part as a Greek woman who has travelled to Jerusalem for the Passover with her son and she meets Jesus in the Temple. The most famous Passion Play in the world is held every ten years in Oberammagau, our production is on a much lesser scale but still has the same purpose of sharing the story of Jesus out on the streets, rather than behind church doors. The performance lasts 90 minutes. It will be outdoors, and there will be some seating for the audience.
