Young People The first Sunday of the month is an All Age Service in church. There is an area at the back of the church with toys, colouring sheets,crayons etc which children are welcome to use at any time throughout the service. For more information about activities for young people please see the page Spiritual Life and Education – Children’s Programme.
The two charities we have chosen to support for 2017/18 are The Family Hub, Glenochil Prison and The Beath Malawi Partnership. Two very worthy causes and hopefully we can find out more about both organisations over the coming year.
We begin with the October collection for our new ‘Home’ charity The Family Hub. The Stirling Interfaith Community Justice Group opened the new Visitor Centre at HMP Glenochil in April 2017.
This facility gives those visiting a person in custody a relaxing place to sit before and after their visit. Refreshments are provided and there is a childrens play area and toilet facilities. Our support will make a big difference to the people using this valuable space during a difficult time in their lives.
ADULT SUNDAY MORNING CLASS
An informal discussion group meets each Sunday in the Parish Rooms at 9.15am. Join us for coffee and a discussion of the day’s readings. All are welcome.
There is a box at the back of the church for donations of food (non-perishable items only) to help stock the food bank in Sauchie which is helping to meet the basic needs of those in want during these difficult economic times. Contact person: Sybil Brinham
