Past Event: Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Pray Together : THAT ALL MAY BE FREE is the title of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.  There were  services during the week from 18 – 25 January when congregations of all the churches  joined together.

Past Event: Christingle Service

Our Family Christingle Service was held on Sunday 7th January 2018 at 10am.  The Christingle Service was held in the Glenorchy Centre and was quite informal as we sat around the tables making our christingles as part of the service.  It was a joy to make the christingles together and learn what each of the symbols represent.

Past Event: 2017 Christmas Church Bazaar

On Saturday 18th November we held our Christmas Bazaar  in the Memorial Hall.  A considerable amount of hard work had gone into preparing the lovely stalls and it was great that so many people came to support us – we met up with old friends and met new people.   £962 was raised for church funds.

Past Event: Folk Carol Service

On Friday 5th January 2018, by popular request, we held our third Folk Carol Service.   The service made a lovely start to the new year and it was lovely that so many people were able to join us.  Please read the short report in our February newsletter.

Past Event: Christmas Dinner

There was a good turnout for the Christmas dinner (cooked by the men of the church) and everyone enjoyed the meal.  Thanks to all who helped in any way.

Past Event: Christmas Day Celebration

On Christmas Day we held a joint service with our friends from the Wellspring Church and  how lovely it was that we could come together again for the celebration service.  Thanks to Camilla and Kevin who led the service and to Paul who played for the hymns.  A wonderful start to Christmas Day.

Past Event: Carol Service

On Christmas Eve at 6pm  our Carol Service was led by our Minister.  The Sunday Explorers also took part with a drama – looking through windows towards the star.   The service was well attended and made a lovely start to our Christmas Celebrations.

Past Event: URC open for mince pies and hot drinks

It was lovely that we were able to keep the church open for the afternoon of Sunday 26th November so that people could come and join with us for a hot drink and mince pie.  This was very well attended.  Thanks to all who supported this.

Past Event: Coffee Evening

Carole and Roy were delighted that so many people were able to come to their coffee evening when they shared slides (set to music) of their American Adventure which included the gospel cruise in Alaska.  There was a super atmosphere and Carole and Roy have received many kind comments.  £200+ was raised for URC funds.

Past Event: Harvest Thanksgiving

On Sunday 1st October our Harvest Thanksgiving and Communion Service was be led by our Minister Revd Camilla Veitch.   Camilla’s theme for the service was about food from being very plentiful in some places to being very meagre in others. We watched pictures on the screen and heard the story of a farmer called Frank in Malawi who because of problems with the weather his crops failed so he couldn’t feed his family.  We sang some lovely harvest hymns throughout the service before celebrating communion together.  The children then came back into church from their Explorers Group showing the work that they had been doing during the morning.

The harvest table was overflowing with gifts of food and flowers which were to be sold after the service, the proceeds of which were to be sent with our envelope gifts to the farmers of Malawi through Christian Aid  (£192.32).
