For our young people, we have a committed and enthusiastic team of volunteers involved throughout the year, offering a wide range of fun and exciting opportunities to learn about the gospel and to discover Jesus for themselves. There are a variety of weekly meetings to get together, discuss and chat as well as away days, weekend camps, sometimes even an overseas trip or an opportunity to attend a Junior Alpha course. All our volunteers participating in regulated work with our young people have PVG membership through Disclosure Scotland.
During Sunday morning services, a crèche is available in the upper meeting room of the church. Volunteers are ready to look after the little ones so that parents/carers can enjoy the service, popping in and out if need be.
For children aged 3 to P7, Junior Church meets at our Church Centre on the High Street from 10.15am (please note, not at the church). Here our young people learn about the Good News of Jesus through stories, songs, games, activities and crafts. Parents are welcome to stay if they wish. Everyone then walks up together to join the end of worship in the church when they share with the congregation what they have been learning.
Jampact and Crossfire (both for S1 and above) give opportunities for our young people to meet together and explore the Christian faith in a fun and relaxed environment. Lively debate and discussion are encouraged!
Jampact meets at 10.15am throughout the year in the Church Centre and join the congregation for the end of the service.
Crossfire meets 7.30–9pm during term time in our Church Centre. After the Easter holidays, P7 pupils are also welcome to come along.
Café Church, a monthly afternoon gathering, offers a more informal and relaxed opportunity for worship for young people, families and others - click here
Tuesday mornings (term-time only) our lively Pram Service offers fun, friends and faith for the under 5s and their carers. Stories, songs as well as lots of things to make and do. Come along to the church at 10am and join in the fun and mayhem.
Tuesday afternoons (also term-time only), our TalkSpace group for Primary School children (run in partnership with KYTHE) meets at 3pm in the garden room at our Church Centre.
Friday evenings, the 1st Kinross Boys’ Brigade and Girls’ Association (P1 to senior secondary and 16+) meet starting at 6pm in our Church Centre on the High Street. For more information, contact Capt David Munro via the church office.
A highlight of our youth work is the annual Family Week, held at the beginning of August. A week of fun, excitement, activities, outings and learning more about Jesus culminates with a family barbecue on the Friday evening. Don’t miss it and look out for further special events planned throughout the year for children and their families.
