Welcome to our Church.  If you wish to know more about our activities, or any other matter, one of the Duty Team at the door will be delighted to help.

Sunday Mornings for Families   Churchbuilders has stopped for the summer and will resume when the schools go back in August.  However there will still be activities for the children on a Sunday morning! An informal 'family time', led by parents, will run in the Carswell each Sunday morning after the first part of the Church service.  A parent or carer must accompany children to this - come and join us for coffee, chat, snacks, crafts, games and more.

Churchbuilders We have a vibrant and growing ministry to children within the Church, and are looking for more volunteers to join the existing Churchbuilders teams working with our kids on a Sunday morning. This would be on a rota basis, about once a month.  If you would like to consider joining this exciting and important area of Church life, contact Julie Robertson for more information. 

EPYC - our Church Youth Group  -  Sunday 16th June is the last meeting in the current session, and we are holding a BBQ at the Laird Hall from 6.30-8.30pm.  For more information, contact James Edgar 07710 977309 or jamesedgarepc@gmail.com

Parish News is available today for uplift by elders from the front of the church. For anyone in the congregation who does not have it delivered to them there are spare copies available at the back of the church.

Youth Fund – In addition to donating by Standing Order or by a one-off donation, another way of donating without cost to yourself is when you are making routine purchases online. If you use the link https://easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/epcyouthfund/   Click on the Support This Cause button, you will be asked to register and then you can access many online retailers who will then put in a donation to our cause when you shop with them and this will generate additional external funding. This method can generate good income. Please try it. If you need guidance please speak to Tom Mann or Debbie Blair .

YOUTH FUND  -  To clarify.   There is a separate bank account for the Youth Fund.   If you already have a standing order made payable to the Church, you may wish to check that you are contributing to where you want your money to go.  Donations to the main account do not go into the Youth Fund and vice versa.  If in doubt please speak to your elder.

The next outing of the Walking Group, on Wednesday 26th June, will be along the Kelvin Walkway, walking from the Transport Museum to the Botanic Gardens.   We leave from Mid Road at 10am.

Holiday Club  - 5th to 9th August  - 10am to 12.30pm.   Specific help is required for refreshments, registration and security.  If anyone can help (even for a day) could they contact James Edgar ASAP.   07710 977309 or jamesedgarepc@gmail.com.   Thanks

Prayer

“Now, our God, we give you thanks and praise your glorious name.”   1 Chronicles 29:13

Lord, we give you thanks for the past church session and for the way you have worked among us. Thank you for answers to prayer; for your encouragement, and for people taking up new roles in our congregation.  As we look to the summer would you refresh us and help us to see your vision for your people.   We pray, In the name of Jesus. Amen.
