Church Matters

By Alex Russon / April 15, 2024

Resorting to ‘safe places’ is something all of us do since such places can feel familiar, giving us comfort. They could be homes, parks, the allotment, maybe a specific spot on a beach, even the bathroom, we all have our ‘go to’ locations when seeking peace and reassurance. Church can be people’s safe place. We […]


Church Matters

By Alex Russon / April 7, 2024

If you’re a regular church-goer, or irregular for that matter, it’s comforting to know there’ll be an accessible venue wherever you may find yourself on a Sunday. Churches aren’t members-only establishments, all are welcome. This week for example I found myself in Aberdeen so dropped into Bridge Of Don’s Baptist Church, and a welcoming bunch […]


Easter @ Stonehaven Baptist Church

By Alex Russon / April 1, 2024

Happy Easter from all at Stonehaven Baptist Church! It was splendid seeing so many unfamiliar faces at the service on Sunday and a pleasure to share a few hours together on this the central day of the Christian faith. To say Easter’s all about Jesus is to make a right royal statement of the obvious. […]


Holy Week thoughts…

By Alex Russon / March 25, 2024

Stonehaven’s churches lead their congregations into Holy Week on Sunday, the annual intro into Easter, the lessons therefore all about ‘the triumphal entry’ with Jesus entering Jerusalem on the back of a colt. He wasn’t just welcomed but heralded, folk spreading their cloaks out on the road before him, fawning in their adoration, lauding him […]


Church this week…

By Alex Russon / March 4, 2024

There comes a time in our lives when rubber must hit the road. We’ve planned  a project, mugged up endlessly for an exam or deliberated long and hard over a difficult upcoming conversation. And now ,after much preparation, the moment of truth arrives when we’ve to act, to speak, to engage. The scripture we shared […]


Stonehaven Baptist Church

By Alex Russon / February 25, 2024

Luke 8 : 1-3 The three most popular female names these days are Olivia, Emma and Charlotte …a bit of useless information for you there perhaps, but interesting nonetheless! Wind back a couple of millennia and one of the most popular names of the day was Mary, the bible contains a few. One such Mary […]


Church Life

By Alex Russon / February 20, 2024

Before any church sermon is preached, a prayer is first lifted to God, asking him to make known his will for our lives through the preaching of his word. When listening to a sermon we’re not looking to be entertained, necessarily, although that’s a happy bonus, we’re in truth seeking God’s message for us, discerning […]


Stonehaven Baptist Church – prayer

By Alex Russon / February 14, 2024

Why? Where? What? When? Who? For those of us unaccustomed to the concept, a prayer meeting may sound peculiar, perhaps even suspicious. Why would a group of people assemble to close their eyes and lift their thoughts to an unseen God? Well, faith is the answer, people of faith demonstrating their dedication by talking and […]


Stonehaven Baptist Church – Proverbs 8

By Alex Russon / February 4, 2024

Every Thursday evening we meet for bible study, prayer and fellowship at Stonehaven Baptist Church, our evening centring on a particular bible scripture. This week that scripture was Proverbs 8, a passage dealing specifically with the subject of wisdom. What is wisdom? Well, it incorporates many facets but to name just a few: knowledge, integrity, […]


Stonehaven Baptist Church – message for the week

By Alex Russon / January 29, 2024

Stonehaven Baptist Church meets at 11am on Sundays within the Old Courthouse building down in the old town. We share fellowship, listen to God’s word, pray, blether and scoff cake. All are welcome but those who can’t make it we hope are encouraged by this weekly missive which aims to unwrap what we learned from […]
