Long Service Awards - 27th January 2019

A Message of Service

“A very special service” is how Session Clerk, Jaffrey Weir, described morning worship on 27January in which Stuart Neave was ordained as a new elder and he and Alan McGhie were admitted to the Kirk Session. Both are already in leadership roles in the congregation, Stuart as Property Convener and Alan as Treasurer. Stuart said he was “very excited” about his new role as an elder.

The service also included the acknowledgement and celebration of Rev Alan Reid’s 10 years as our minister and Norman White’s 40 years as an elder, all in our kirk and many of them in leadership roles. In addition, a certificate was presented to Lynn Caldwell, leader of our Junior Church, for becoming approved as a Safeguarding trainer for the Presbytery of Perth.

Also celebrated was the amazing service of Rev Clifford Kelly who was ordained over 60 years ago. He gave the congregation a thumbnail sketch of his journey in spreading the Good News, thanked all the support he had received from his wife Johan, his family and all the office bearers and members in his various parishes before leading the congregation in prayer.

Jaffrey Weir said: “These people provide an example to all of us of commitment, service and faith in spreading the Good News of our Lord”.

Nativity Service 2018

This year's Nativity Service took place on Sunday 16th December. The Church was filled with celebrations and joy as the children told the story of the birth of Jesus.

Harvest Thanksgiving 2018

A vibrant Harvest Thanksgiving Service took place on Sunday 30th September with a thought provoking sermon, a beautiful christening and the choir sang a beautiful rendition of John Rutter's 'For The Beauty of the Earth'.
The church’s special collections at its Communion and Harvest Thanksgiving Services in September were supplemented by donations at a well-attended and meaningful evening service in the form of a Harvest Supper. A total of £2,023 has been raised and this will be targeted at the charity’s work in Scotland.

Admin & Comms Gathering

The Administration & Communication Team Committee had a Gathering at Coffee Stop on Saturday 8th September for all those volunteers, and the Office Coordinator, who come under the Admin & Comm umbrella, as a way of saying thank you. Orders of Service, posters, press releases, calendars, Lets bookings, Intimations, website information, Facebook messages and church magazines don’t magically appear – they are the result of everyone’s diligent work which supports the life of the Church. A special presentation was made to Graeme Paterson, who has been doing the Weekly Intimations EVERY WEEK (apart from very short holidays) for 10 years. Thank you, Graeme! Not everyone was able to be there, but it was it was a lovely get-together. And thank you to Coffee Stop for looking after us so well

The Beauty of Our Town

The Lord created the heavens - he is the one who is God! He formed and made the earth - he made it firm and lasting. He did not make it a desolate waste, but a place for people to live. It is he who says, "I am the Lord, and there is no other god" ~ Isaiah 45:18 GNT ~
