In addition to our Worship we have various other opportunities to suit all ages to welcome you to -
Sunday Clubs for children of primary school age -
Meet every Sunday from September to June from 11am - 12noon.
The children meet in the church at 11am for the first part of the service and then go out to the hall to do their own activities and come into the church for the last part of the service. The welcome team at the door will direct you if you don’t know where to go and the leaders will be downstairs waiting for the children.
The leaders are Mrs Sheila Crichton, Mrs Moira Adam and Mrs Mary Coyle.
The Crèche lets parents come to church knowing that their little ones will be looked after in a safe environment whilst having fun. Please bring them along and have peace of mind that if they don’t settle someone will come into the church for you.
