Latest news



Dear friends,

What a difference a day makes! We are all coming to terms with the changes to our known way of life and trying to process how they will impact upon us as individuals, as a community and as a church.

I received notification from the Church of Scotland this afternoon that as from tomorrow all services of worship will be cancelled for the foreseeable future. There can be no use of the halls for any purpose and the church office will be closed.

We will all feel shocked at this news but please do not fret. The Psalmist tells us that, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble.” (Psalm 46) If ever we need to believe this – now is the time. The arrival of the coronavirus has created an ever-changing situation. Let us find our refuge and strength in the One who never changes and who has been, is and always will be an ever-present help in our times of trouble.

Please check the church website and Facebook page for updates. Even though we cannot meet in the church for worship there will be some kind of Sunday service available to access online.

Keeping you all in prayer in these uncertain days.

With God’s richest blessings.

Come and celebrate 53 years of the Playgroup

This coming Saturday morning (7th Sept) will see us hold a Family Fun Day and Celebration for the Playgroup who have moved out of the church hall 53 years after it was founded in the village. The event will feature lots of thing including the unveiling of a new statue in the garden of children at play, the planting of two trees and the placing of new picnic benches. EVERYONE who has had anything to do with the Playgroup is invited along to join us. **PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH ALL YOUR FRIENDS**
