Welcome to our service this morning. Children aged between 3 and 11 years are welcome to go with the teachers to Sunday Club after the second hymn. 

There are pew bags in the vestibule with activities to keep wee ones occupied.

Prayer meeting in St. Mary’s Hall at 7.30pm this evening.

NB next Sunday’s service will be Café Church in St. Mary’s Hall. Please tell any friends who find getting up to the church difficult.

Session meeting next Sunday afternoon, 20th January at 1pm.

Michele and Peter Guinness will be with us over the weekend of January 26th/27th. Michele will speak at a meeting for women on the morning of the 26th, followed by lunch, and in the evening they will both speak at a meeting for all. They will both take part in our Sunday services. If you would like to come but can't use the Eventbrite ticketing online please sign the sign up sheet. We want to encourage people to invite friends to both of the Saturday events—but particularly women to invite friends who don’t usually come to church to the morning event. There will be good food!! Invitations available at coffee or the vestibule For more information see the article in News and Views. Please book if you plan to come (although people can turn up on the day—it would just help with planning to know numbers) Book on http://bit.ly/BIGGARKIRK
