Our Sunday Services in August 2019:
Evening Services

In the past over the summer months we have joined our evening services with the Methodist and Presbyterian Churches. However this year both churches have decided to close during the Summer months and we are doing likewise. It is hoped that those who normally attend the evening service will come to either the 9.00am or 11.00am service. The evening services will resume on Sunday 8th September at 7.00pm.

The Welcome Team members (who will greet you as you arrive) are:

4th August:   
Jeanette Wilson and Richard Cochrane
11th August: 
Gwen and Karl Saunders
18th August: 
Myrtle and George Irvine
25th August: 
Doris and Gordon Jackson
