Following discussion and an introductory session, the Kirk Session agreed to sign up for and support Growing Young - an exciting new programme to explore some hard questions and issues facing many congregations today. eg "What does the future of our church look like?" "How does the church become multi-generational and not grow old?" Look out for more information on this.

 

 

A warm and friendly welcome awaits anyone who would like to come along to the Thursday Group, which meets at 7.30pm on the first Thursday of the month in our Church Centre. It offers fellowship, a cup of tea, and a chat and a host of engaging topics from guest speakers. 

Our informal, dementia-friendly singing group, Let's Sing, has been meeting monthly since June 2019, meeting on the second Sunday of every month from 2.30-4pm in the church. We are always delighted to welcome anyone who enjoys singing but particularly those living with dementia and their carers. We begin with a cup of tea and a chat, and then have a really good sing. 

Our friendly house groups meet weekly at different times of the day. Anyone who is interested in meeting together with others to study the Bible and discuss its relevance in our lives (all over a cup of tea or coffee) is always welcome. Speak to the minister or contact the church office if you’re thinking about coming along and would like to discuss which might best suit you. Come and join one! 

The Guild gives opportunities for women and men to share fellowship and express faith through worship, prayer and action. It meets fortnightly at 7.15pm on Tuesday evenings (Sept-March) in our Church Centre on the High Street. Speakers cover a variety of entertaining and informative subjects. There is always time for tea and building friendships. 

The gift of flowers, organised by the Flower Group, can bring comfort and appreciation as an expression of care, during challenging times or in times of celebration and are distributed weekly after each Sunday Service. If you are aware of some who might appreciate flowers, or would like to help arranging, delivering or perhaps make a donation towards them, please contact the church office.  

The Craft Group, including the Banner Group, meet in the Church on Wednesday afternoons 1.30pm-3pm. We all have our own favourite crafts and continue to work on them at home. If you are interested in crafts, have time to make things and talents to share with others, please come along to the Church on a Wednesday. There's always time for a cuppa too. 

As part of Prospect Across Scotland, All Friends Together provides an opportunity for people with learning disabilities to come together, along with members of our church, to share the Good News of Jesus in a meaningful and fun way. 

The Choir enjoy leading worship on a Sunday morning, singing at other events and have even made a CD! We meet for Choir Practice each Sunday at 9.15am in the Church and welcome anybody who would like to join us either on a regular basis or for special services. We’re a friendly group and enjoy the fellowship we have as a choir.
