Next Special Event

Our annual Bereavement Service this year takes place on Sunday 30th September at 3pm. The service is open to everyone who wishes to remember the life of a loved one. To help with catering, please let our Session Clerk, George Drummond, know if you are planning to attend.

Our Harvest Service is planned for 7th October. Again we hope to have our Missionary partner, Jenny Featherstone, live on screen from Zambia. An offering will be taken to support Jenny's work.

Poppy Appeal: Don’t forget to keep your empty plastic bottles - the ones with the curved bases are ideal - to make our poppy display for November. If possible please cut off the base ready for painting.

Saturday 24th November: Christmas Afternoon Teas. The Women’s Group will organise the afternoon teas, but will welcome other Church groups, friends, etc, to run the cake and candy stall and other tables.

Our Latest Sermon Notes
Throughout history, people of power have built some impressive buildings. Pyramids, temples, palaces, castles and grand stately homes. Often built on prominent places, they are there for other people to see. They shouted, 'WOW'. Look at me! They are displays of status, prestige, sophistication, and in most cases of course, of power. Can you name some buildings built to impress? Coliseum in Rome, Taj Mahal in India - the tomb of an Indian emperors favourite wife, Palace of Versailles - home of the Kings of France. The Stewart kings of Scotland built their own palaces at Linlithgow and Falkland, to show they were sophisticated European kings, into art, music and architecture. The list goes on. What about the 'wee pad' in Pennsylvania Ave? Did you know that the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest, Romania, has 1100 rooms. Started by Ceausescu as a symbol of his status and to show to the world the power of communist Romania. In reality it was all about him and his rule, rather than the needs of the country. These places, are more than just buildings.
