“As part of our service next Sunday (12th February) we will be taking time to remember those we lost during 2020 and 2021 who could not have normal funerals due to Covid regulations.  This will include those belonging to the congregation and also relatives of members. In addition we will give thanks to God for His goodness and mercy towards us in the darkest days of the pandemic.”

The Hungarian Bible Union have asked us to send a team to lead a Holiday Bible Club from 7th to 11th August 2023.  Before the Kirk Session decides to accept the invitation, we would like to know if we have enough people willing to travel to Hungary.  If you would be willing to come and help teach children and young people, provide music, help with games or help in the kitchen please speak to Mr Boyd asap.
