What about the Sabbath day?
Observing a day of rest is a core part of our organisation. We believe that the Sabbath day (observed on the first day of the week, Sunday) has been given to us as a gift from God. The Sabbath (also called the Lord’s Day) also enables us to live more productive and Godly lives when we take a day of rest, rather than rushing about seven days a week.
Our policy at Scottish Reformation Tours is that the Sabbath is to be a day of worship and rest both for the Tour guides as well as for those on the Tour.
Because of this, your tour includes the opportunity to worship with the Airdrie Reformed Presbyterian Church (which is the home church of the tour guides, and the church responsible for the ministry of Scottish Reformation Tours). You will worship in Airdrie in the morning, where the congregation will be delighted to get to know you.
After lunch with some in the church, you may rest at your accommodation or visit a local country park (weather permitting) for a lovely walk followed by tea with others in the congregation, and then evening worship.
The Reformed Presbyterian Church of Scotland traces its spiritual roots through the Covenanting Societies back to the Covenanters who died during the ‘Killing Times’ in the 1680’s.
Today by God’s grace the Airdrie RP Church is going through a period of revitalisation, a fact which saw it featured in the December 2006 issue of the UK national Christian magazine ‘Evangelicals Now’.
You will have the joy of worshipping God with this vibrant Reformed community of Christians during your Lord’s day(s) in Scotland.
