Alberton Presbyterian Church
Our Sunday worship service is at 9:30 am.
For seven generations people in Alberton
have been gathering for worship
each Sunday in Alberton Church.
Is there something they knew that you don't?
The services in Alberton Church during Advent will be shaped by the reflections in the advent devotional guide "Advent: A Time of Hope". For more details on this booklet scroll further down on this page.

Advent 2014 Advent Readings 2013Plans are being finalized for a shared devotional emphasis during Advent 2014. Copies of the Advent daily devotional guide "Advent: A Time of Hope", written by Paula D'Arcy, will be distributed to everyone by December 1st. With this devotional booklet you will receive a brochure with suggested familiar Gospel Readings for Advent that relate the story of the birth of Jesus Christ. To view that brochure online click on Advent Readings 2013. In addition to encouraging everyone to use this devotional resource during Advent we are planning to offer four small group study/discussion sessions based on the themes developed in this booklet. The unique feature is that we will be sharing this small group experience with people from two neighbouring congregations - Carluke Presbyterian Church and Jerseyville United Church. While details are still being finalized the plan is for the small group gatherings to be as follows:
Tuesday, December 3rd. at 10 am at Carluke Presbyterian Church
Tuesday, December 10th. at 10 am here in Alberton Church
Tuesday, December 17th. at 1o am in Jerseyville United Church
The final gathering will be on Sunday, Dec. 22nd., at 7 pm in Alberton.
The small group gatherings will be informal and conversational in style with an opportunity for fellowship as well as discussion. We invite you to consider sharing in this new community oriented spiritual venture.
