Our Praise : This morning our praise items are taken from Church Hymnary Third Edition (CH) and those at evening services are taken from Mission Praise (MP).
If you feel more comfortable sitting during the items of praise, please feel free to do so.
Crèche: There is a crèche in the Church Hall behind the Church if anyone wishes to leave their children there during the morning service.
Sunday School : We welcome our younger members back after the Christmas and New Year holiday period.
The group meets every Sunday during the school term. The young people meet initially in the Church before moving to the Church Hall.
The Ladies’ Bible Study Group : The group meets in the Church Hall on Tuesdays from 10.30 am to 12.00 noon. All ladies welcome
The Prayer Fellowship : Due to the ongoing work by Scottish Water the Fellowship group is cancelled until further notice.
Pastoral Visits : The Minister asks that he would be kept informed of any member of the congregation who is ill, in hospital or would welcome a visit from him.
Congregational Board & Kirk Session : A joint meeting of the Board and Kirk Session will be held in the Church Hall at 7.00 pm on Thursday 16 January with a meeting of Session following thereafter.
Minutes and Agenda are available from the Vestibule.
Church Magazine : The first 2020 edition of our magazine is scheduled for issue prior to Easter (12 April).
The main theme for this edition will, not surprisingly, be SPRING and EASTER and we would ask for articles on thoughts of Spring ; memories of Easter past ; favourite hymns ; poetry ( famous or your own) etc.
It would be appreciated if articles could be typed and either placed in the Magazine Folder in the Vestibule or, preferably, emailed to the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org Handwritten articles can still be placed in the folder.
The provisional schedule for the production will be :-
January to Sunday 01 March – submission of articles
02 March to 15 March – preparation and proofreading of the Magazine
Week beginning 16 March – printing of magazine
Sunday 29 March – issue of magazine to distributors
We hope that, with your help, we can once again continue the high standards set in previous editions.
