Organisations

Mothers & Toddlers

 We have had a good session, the children gave cards to their mothers on Mothers
Day and they also received an Easter egg and the end of the session.

As a few of the children have gone onto a nursery school we have a few places available.

Mother and Toddler groups give mothers a chance to get together have a chat over a cuppa while their children enjoy all the toys and the interaction with other
kids.



Kids Sunday Club

 

Our Sunday Club takes place during the morning service.

We welcome children from the age of 3 upwards.

Currently we are using Scripture Union and On The Way Material.

We have fun and fellowship whilst learning about the Bible.



Good as New Shop ( Thursday's)

 

 

The Shop has been in operation since the 15th November 1984.  It was at the suggestion of the Social Committee that we should to run a shop once a week to help raise funds for the Church. 

 

 

 

Thanks to members and friends who have donated goods for us to operate the shop for the past 28 years and to the many volunteers who have helped to make the shop a worthwhile venture.

 

Since the shop opened until the end of October 2012.

The shop has contributed approx £204,275 to Church funds. 

 

 

 

 

Thanks to all who have helped in any way to our success " 28 years and still going strong "

Current projects

Continuing the three-year, themed cycle of work which has seen its members reach record levels of giving, even in these straitened economic times, the focus of the Guild's work moves this summer into looking at faith and how members reflect that in their daily lives.

This strategy, entitled "Whose we are and Whom we serve," which echoes the Guild's motto since its founding 125-years ago, will see members invited to raise awareness of, pray for, and fundraise for the following areas of work with these partner organisations.

  • Comfort Rwanda, whose work is to extend a project in which those who were responsible for the genocide that killed 1million Rwandans in 100-days are building new homes for the survivors
  • Heart for Art, with CrossReach, are looking at the use of art therapy in the care of those with dementia.  The project offers the opportunity for people with dementia and their carers throughout Scotland, to build supportive relationships and access support and advice from CrossReach staff.
  • Mary's Meals, working in Liberia, one of the poorest countries in the world, to provide food and resources for school children.  Hundreds of children were recruited to fight in a war which has had long and devastating consequences for Liberia.
  • A Passage from India, in partnership with the Priority Areas Committee of the Church of Scotland, and dealing with micro-financing of enterprise within Urban Priority Areas in Scotland.
  • The Julius Project, an initiative of Scottish Churches' Housing Action recognising the problems faced and support required by people entering social housing tenancies following a period of homelessness.
  • Out of Africa into Malta, run by the Church of Scotland's World Mission Council and the Presbytery of Europe, it addresses issues faced by refugees escaping from a range of tragic circumstances and coming to Malta to seek hope.

These six projects running from 2012-2015 will surely inspire and encourage members to support them with "worship, prayer and action."
