After Morning Worship Fellowship : After Morning Worship today Tea , Coffee, Juice and biscuits will be served in the Church. Please stay behind for as long or short a time as you can manage and enjoy a time of fellowship with other members of the congregation and with visitors to our church.
Our Praise : Normally at our morning services the items of Praise are taken from Church Hymnary Third Edition (CH3) 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 and Youth Fellowship : The groups meet every Sunday during the school term, initially in the Church before moving to the Church Hall.

The Prayer Fellowship : The group meets in the Manse at 7.00 pm each Tuesday evening. All are welcome to attend.
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.
New Communicant Members : Any Adherent who would wish to become a full communicant member of the church should speak to the Minister at the end of the service or contact him by telephone. We would dearly love to see more Adherents take up full communicant membership of the church and take Communion on Easter Sunday, 16 April.

Retiral Offering + Christian Aid East Africa Crisis Appeal : A Retiral Offering will be taken at both services today.
As you are no doubt aware people are dying daily from hunger and malnutrition across East Africa in what has been described as the worst humanitarian crisis since 1945.
If you wish your retiral offering to go to church funds it should be handed in in the normal manner. However, if you would wish your donation to go to the Christian Aid East Africa Crisis Appeal you should place it in the special box in the Vestibule marked “East Africa Appeal”.
The box will remain in the Vestibule for the next three Sundays to allow any further other donations to be made.
