Sunday Club for children aged 3 years old to Primary 7 meets in our halls following the Children’s Time – all children welcome! If you have younger children, feel free to stay in church with them, but if you need to leave, the Welcome Area at the main door is available.

Easter Eggs – At its meeting on 20 February, the Kirk Session agreed to support an appeal to the congregation for 60 Easter Eggs for the clients who attend the Meet and 2 Veg project in our church. This project supports some of the most vulnerable people in our community as well as saving tonnes of food which would otherwise go to landfill. Morrisons [and other stores] are currently selling the following Easter Eggs for £1.50 Cadbury’s Mini Eggs Chocolate Easter Egg, Cadbury’s Chocolate Buttons Easter Egg and Cadbury’s Freddo Easter Egg.  Of course, other eggs are available! 
If you feel you would like to support the project, please pass your Easter Egg to the Church Office or to Hilary.  The Kirk Session will fund the purchase of 60 Easter cards bearing a Christian message which will be handed out with the Easter Eggs.  This is low level Christian outreach which we hope will sow seeds of faith.

Easter code: That time of year when I’m looking for helpers: On Thursday 21 March we need 1 person to help with the snacks for West Coats Primary. For more information please speak to Karen Hamilton.
