Kirk Session Matters

1. For elders: The next meeting, on Wednesday, 11th August will take place at 7.30pm in Glebe St Hall! Another small step forward towards 'normality'...

2. Kirk Session last met on 21st July. Subjects for discussion included: financial reporting for 2020 (it was noted that expenditure had gone up but  income had dropped 14.5%); development of new hall-letting policy, procedures and charges for the new year starting in September; new district-cum-door duty team structures for elders; the easing of restrictions (including the possibility of in-person meetings and seating capacity); Youth and Families activities and achievements, and the renaming of the Education Committee to Children and Youth Team; Presbytery report including the appointment of Charlie Devennie to be our Presbytery Elder; Property Committee Report including new alarm and digital entry systems; Worship arrangements including baptisms.

3. We are very pleased to announce the formal admittance of a new member on Sunday 25th July, during the service. 

 

Link to August EKO Magazine Coming Soon?

We are producing our church magazine throughout the summer, as we did last year, in response to the pandemic, but we currently have a local problem loading the August edition to the website. Please bear with us....
 
While you wait for the magazine link to be available, you might like to know:
We have copied the Pastoral Letter and Youth Worker Update to the relevant News pages, and an article by the Session Clerk to 'The Lighter Side' on the Home page.
One part of the Rainbows, Brownies and Guides update has been copied to their 'Our Space' pages and the other will follow, as will photos, (all being well).
A section of the Prayer Diary is copied to 'Other Special Notices' as always, and it will be updated each week.
 
We can also tell you that the deadline for submissions to the September magazine is 25th August.
 

Note: While guidelines now allow us to resume personal delivery of the magazine by Helping Hands, if you wish to receive the EKO by email, please contact Isobel Gray - you can use the Church Office number: 01355 279004, This email address is being protected from spambots.

 Sunday Services

Our services are firmly established back in the church, but online live broadcasts and videos will continue.

PLEASE REMEMBER that, in order to comply with ‘track & trace’ we have to know everyone attending so you will still have to book a place through Louise, our Church Secretary.

"Connect 5" Holiday Club starts in August, but note: registration for our Holiday Clubs has been so popular we can now only put new applicants on a reserve list to fill any places which become available nearer the time. Contact Iain Shaw, our Children, Youth and Families Worker, for more details.
