We hold times for fun, worship and friendship for preschool children and parents or carers on Tuesdays at 1:00pm.  We next meet on Tuesday 26 May from 1 – 2.30 pm.

This is a chance for children to learn through play and crafts, work together as they are able and enjoy songs and stories connected with faith. Parents and carers have a chance to play with their children and talk to each other over tea and cakes and worship with their children. It is open to all preschool children and parents/carers. Hope to see you there.

Tomorrow’s Calling

The first stage of the Church of Scotland’s Decade for Ministry is about to begin, encouraging candidates to come forward to serve in parish ministry.  The campaign,  using the slogan Tomorrow’s Calling, reflects God’s call to serve through the church and demands a response from those individuals who may hear that call.

The highlight of the launch at Heart and Soul this Sunday coming is a short film which champions the important work of parish ministers across the country.  In selecting a handful of ministers and promoting the impact they are having in their local areas, the Church wants to show the significant role each and every one of our ministers has through their congregations and communities.  We want to help more people answer God’s call and also boost the profile of parish ministry.  A very brief clip of the video has been shown on BBC and STV news this morning.

Why not watch the film, engage with the website, and share material on Facebook and Twitter?  You will be able to find out all the information you need at www.tomorrowscalling.org.uk .    On Twitter we are using the hashtag #tomorrowscalling.

If you’d like any more information in the first place about responding to a call to serve in ministry, have a word with the Minister, Grant Barclay.
