Messy Church next meets on Tuesday 28th April from 1 – 2.30 pm. It is open to all preschool children and parents/carers. Hope to see you there.
On Saturday, our men’s group is hearing from Grant Barclay about his trip to Palestine-Israel last year. He’ll mention loads of resources and organisations working for peace with justice, and you can download the electronic 20150425-iopt-resources here.
The next Men’s Breakfast is on Saturday 25th April at 9 am in the Lounge, when Grant will tell us a little of his trip to Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
We also arranged a visit to the Sikh Gurdwara on Saturday 30th May, leaving the church car park by car around 10.30 am. A sign up sheet will be in the foyer as of Sunday 26th April.
We are arranging a trip to the Isle of Whithorn on Saturday 26th September, taking in St Ninians Cave, Whithorn Priory and Museum. We would leave about 9 am and return about 9 pm, with a stop on the return journey home for an evening meal. We hope that friends from St Matthews would join us.
A sign up sheet is in the foyer and we would ask you to sign up by Sunday 3rd May, so that we can judge whether this is viable.

Sundays are special.
Our present Sunday morning services mix traditional and contemporary worship with a range of musical styles, an orderly but relaxed approach to worship and a welcome for everyone.
We like to think our worship is relaxed but reverent, flexible but organised, and designed to promote worship through adoration and careful thinking. Although familiar, it’s also intended to be unsettling and challenging. We follow the historic Reformed pattern of focusing on preaching though we are also aware of the importance of sung praise and of praying. We generally don’t dress up much, though we admire those who do! Worship starts at 11 am, lasts an hour and there’s the opportunity for coffee and conversation right afterwards.
As well as worship, we use Sundays as times to get together, to think about faith, to pray and to consider how we might help one another better serve Christ’s kingdom. From time to time we welcome others from our community and other churches to shared services.
We also hold praise evenings or join with other congregations for worship from time to time. Have a look at our Services page for more details
