From the 16th to the 23rd September, we look forward to having Donald John Morrison with us. Mr Morrison who is the 'Home Missions Worker' for our wider church.
Throughout the week, Mr Morrison will seek to inform those in the streets round about us that they are warmly invited to come to church and encourage them to do so. We desire our church to be known amongst the community as a friendly church that is devoted to the teaching of God's Word.
It is hoped that in some time later in the year, a Christianity Explored class may be run. If you are interested, a link can be found here.
Please remember this work urgently in prayer.
As a congregation who have known the goodness of God and neighbour in securing our building funds, we've been keen to support other who are in the same situation.
Over the summer months, an encouraging collection was taken for the work of Grace Reformed Church Gambia, as well as for the work of our sister church in Sri Lanka.

Over the last four Sunday mornings, we've been studying the account of Ruth, an Old Testament character who became a key figure in the lineage of the Kings of Israel.
We've considered thus far chapters 1-2, studying in particular the various characters, and what can be learnt from their good and bad points. Above all, the focus is on God who works in people's lives, even in tragedy, to restore and strengthen their faith.
We've also looked at the Christian's
After the morning worship on Sunday, 30th June, there will be a fellowship lunch for all to attend.
We would be happy to have you along; simply bring some lunch for yourself and a little extra for other, and we usually end up with a feast!
