Young Church (and Creche)
Sunday School and Bridges for young people between the ages of 3 and 11 each Sunday morning. The young people are under the guidance of fully trained Sunday school teachers. The teaching staff use material from SALT, and other material produced by the relevant religious education companies, including Video and DVDs. An annual prize giving us held every year and the children are involved with Bible readings, prayers and singing and the children enjoy taking part and being part of the Church. Bridges looks after the young people from the age of twelve. There is an emphasis within the Church to make the children an integral part of our worship and the Kirk Session encourage them to participate in communion with their parents/guardians. A creche is available each Sunday morning for children under the age of 3.
The Kirk Choir play an important part in leading the congregational praise in worship at each Sunday morning service. At most services the choir sing an introit and item of praise during the offering. The choice of music varies from traditional hymns to modern praise items.
Rehearsals are held every Sunday at 10am. The choir also occasionally join with our neighbouring church Brucefield to lead evening worship services and perform items of praise.
