Tuesday Morning Bible Study
(These meetings are not being held at present.)
The first of these bible studies took place on the 22nd January and until this week we have met every Tuesday. Attendances have usually been between five and seven.
We have been studying the gospel of Mark and the debates on the first 6 chapters have at times been quite lively! We have been inspired each week by God's word in the gospel itself and also by the excellent commentary of Tom Wright.
We are all hopeful that the weekly meeting will continue without a break as I'm sure all who attend find it beneficial in all kinds of ways.

Logos (meaning 'The Word') is a house group meeting held on most Tuesday evenings for bible study and discussion, taking a break for the months of July and August. Last year we considered some of the aspects of a gospel centred church, aswell as studying the book of Amos.

The friendship club in St. Modan's church hall was established 8 years ago by two enthusiastic church members, Maimie Cattanach and Sandra Munro. The purpose of the club is to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere for people who either live alone or are feeling isolated in the community. It is held every other week on a Wednesday afternoon for about 2 hours during the winter months. Our current membership is around 40.
In order to make the afternoon work the 2 ladies quickly formed a group of volunteers to provide assistance in the running of it. This got established in the form of "duties". Some provide transport, some bake, some set up the hall, and others carry out all the tasks necessary to make the club function.
A programme of events are booked at the beginning of the year. These are varied and interesting and cover a wide range. We have local history, film slides, music and dance, singers which include choirs, quizzes (hotly contested!), travelogues and many more.
To accompany all of the above we havea tea with delicious home baking and lots of chat and laughter. The winter season is also punctuated with some traditions. Burn's is celebrated with haggis, music, song and poems. Christmas lunch is another delight and again accompanied by music. We finish the season with a soup lunch cooked and served by our volunteers.
This is a brief snapshot of the ethos of the club which has at its heart a group of people of all ages.
