Services on Sunday 5th December

Morning Service at 11am

This Sunday morning, our Pastor Alasdair will start the Christmas series ‘God with us’. This week’s theme is ‘A generous Christmas’. The Scripture reading is from Philippians 2:5-11.  

This Sunday morning is a special morning for the Mackenzie family when Struan Mackenzie will be dedicated.  Please pray for David, Emily, Eilidh and grandparents George and Mairead at this time.

All are welcome. We hope you will be able to join us. 

Evening Communion Service at 6pm

This Sunday evening, we will be joining together for a communion service.  All are very welcome to attend and those who have put their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord are encouraged to partake.  

If you are unable to come in person and we would encourage you to join us from home and have bread and juice available and join with us through Zoom (Zoom link details are to be sent out in the weekly email update).

Kidzone (age 0 - P6)

Our Kidzone meets during the morning service. Please join us on an adventure as we read the Bible together and find out about the Greatest Story Ever. Each week at Kidzone we will be reading a part of the Bible, finding out what happened and what God says to us through it.  We’d love for families find a wee bit of time each week to explore this together through the Family Bible Course, written by Andrew Ollerton and his family. 

The family link for this week's chapter of the Greatest Story Ever is here. We will use a timeline at Kidzone so there’s no need to print anything! Just watch, read, chat and pray together.  

For more information, contact our Children's and Family worker Nicki Hutchison.

The JYF is for those in P7 to S2 and they meet during the morning service at the Church House.

Senior Youth Fellowship (S3-S6) from 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Our Senior YF meet at the church building on Sunday evenings during school term time. At the end of our meetings, we enjoy sharing food together and this time allows for great fellowship and conversation between young people and leaders.
