OTHER ACTIVITIES IN OUR CHURCH

Every Wednesday a small informal drop-in group meets at 7.00pm in the church. “What you say and hear here, stays here”. Some weeks we plan together what will be happening in the following weeks. All members of the congregation and their friends are welcome to turn up and walk in.

Here are examples of our activities:

  1. Sharing and discussing a particular interest, thought, feeling or concern. It doesn’t have to be spiritual or religious. Anything under the sun goes!
  2. Arranging to attend a particular film/lecture/ theatrical production/ talk together and discuss its meaning and importance later at the meeting.
  3. Planning an outing/walk on a Saturday to a place of interest. eg Doors Open Days, Scottish Agricultural Museum and Kilmartin Glen in Argyll.
  4. Reading a play, sharing an interesting newspaper or magazine article, playing favourite music etc.

Social Occasions

Aside from the weekly coffee-hour, the social events proposed for the final quarter of 2018 are a shared lunch in October, a yet-to-be arranged outing in November and an afternoon party for children and adults in December.


Social Action Group: meeting monthly after the service on the second Sunday of each month. This group provides an opportunity to help alleviate the problems of our modern world. Topics of current interest are Amnesty, poverty, homelessness, refugees, animal welfare, re-cycling and environmental concerns. From fund-raising to active protest, we will be doing what we can. Your ideas and time would be most welcome.
