Easter Holiday Club..
09 April 2016
The Easter Holiday Club was another very successful week. It was attended by an average of 28 youngsters, a number of whom have no regular church connection. A team of 6 older folk gave of their time to help the proceedings. The club has now been run for about 20 years and it was noted that some of the earliest children who attended now bring their own children along.

World Day of Prayer..
04 March 2016
A good number of folk joined together in the service which we held in Ford Spence Court this year. Produced by Christian women in Cuba, it was entitled 'Receive children, receive me'.
We shared pieces of fresh mango and pineapple, as grown in Cuba, as we enjoyed fellowship, tea and cakes after our worship.

The Tuesday evening meetings before Lent had been studying the Gospel of John. Jim Barr joined folk on Friday to bring futher enlightenment to the first chapters. A lovely meal was provided and shared by all prior to the study.
It was a really good evening. (More can be learned about Jim in the 'Logos' entry in the 'Groups' folder of our site).
Marking Lent in 2016..
19 February 2016
During Lent we are encouraged to undertake something positive to help us on our spiritual jouney through life.
Some of us feel called to accept an invitation to meet at the Manse over four Tuesdays to study together and share some prayer and fellowship. This year we are studying a course by John Ortberg, a Presbyterian pastor in California.
We are also invited to select and read a book specifically for this season. This is more of a challenge to some than to others, but many have found it a worthwhile exercise over the years.
Our Minister is happy to advise.
