The Men’s Association is open to all men, whether of congregation or not. Visitors - both men and women – are most welcome on evenings when the topic for discussion is of interest. We give you an idea of the range of some of the topics below.
We meet in the Upper Hall of the Church Halls, Montgomery Street, usually on alternate Monday nights, from 7.30pm till around 9.15pm from around October - March. After a short opening act of worship, the Speaker for the evening takes over. Tea, coffee, biscuits and moving and mingling with one another mark the next stage.
Then comes a time with questions to the Speaker and discussion. The singing of a final hymn brings the evening to a close. There is a small charge for the evening.
To give you an idea of the sort of things we do, see last year's programme below. Our new programme will be posted after the summer break.

*Our Guest Speaker will be Mrs Isobel McKinnon, who will be speaking about a visit she made to ST KILDA. While there, Isobel took part in a work camp, organised by the National Trust for Scotland, who now looks after the St Kilda archipelago. Situated out in the Atlantic, 41 miles west of South Uist, St Kilda is a World Heritage Site, and boasts the highest cliffs in Britain – 1,400 feet high. It is also home to Britain’s largest colony of Atlantic puffins, 140,000 pairs. It’s a fascinating place and all who would find this of interest will be warmly welcomed.
