The Sunday School
The Sunday School begins at 11.00 when they meet and join with the rest of the congregation for morning worship. After an address from Mr Carmichael, they go through to the hall where they continue with their own programme. After some singing, the boys and girls split into the junior section, senior section and Bible Class where they are taught from the Bible by their teacher using Scripture Press or Go Teach workbooks. The Sunday school runs from September – June. During July and August the regular sunday school team enjoy a break while the Summer Sunday School team takes over.
The Ark meets on a Friday morning between 10:00am and 11:30am. It’s a fun time for pre-school children to come, make friends and enjoy play with their parents, grandparents or carers. There are lots of activities, all loads of fun for the children to get involved in. There’s usually something to make or do, with access to soft play or a ball pool. There’s also a singing time. Grown-ups get to enjoy coffee and cake while watching their youngsters play. It is a warm and friendly gathering in a Christian environment and everyone is made most welcome. There is a charge of £1.50 for the first child and £1 for subsequent children from the same family.
The Youth Club
The Youth club takes place every Saturday night between 6.30 to 9.00pm, where as many as forty school age children meet for games and activities. The aim of the Youth Club is to provide a safe environment for children, P6 and above, on a Saturday night, where they can meet with friends, play games and hear something of the Gospel message through the “middlelogue” – a short Gospel presentation in the middle of the evening.
The Youth Fellowship
The Youth Fellowship normally meets immediately after evening worship. On alternate Sundays, when there is no evening worship, members of the Youth Fellowship meet for prayer at 7pm, with the main meeting beginning at 7.30pm. The Youth Fellowship provides teaching, opportunities for participation in Bible Study and discussion groups. It promotes friendship and fellowship among young people aged 14 and above. Social events are organised on a regular basis. TNT (‘Thursday Night Thing’) takes place in the hall every Thursday at 7pm, providing opportunity for leisure and sporting activity.
The Girls’ Brigade
The Girls’ Brigade takes place on Tuesday evenings for girls from Primary 1 to Secondary 6, with the older girls having opportunities of leadership training and service to church and community.
The Girls’ Brigade is a worldwide Christian organisation for girls and women whose aim it is to help and encourage girls to a Christian commitment. It is our desire to create a caring environment which encourages the development of individual talents and seeks to meet the needs of each member. Girls’ Brigade is very often the only contact that some girls have with the Church. This provides opportunities to make contact with the wider family through special events and services, all of these opening up avenues to reach young people for Christ.
Ladies Bible Study Groups
We currently have four ladies bible study groups in operation. One meets in the evening, while the other three are daytime groups. These Bible Study groups, informal and lively, are designed to promote not only an understanding of God’s Word but also Christian fellowship and spiritual nurture. If you would like more detailed information about these groups, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
