Children and families all join together for the first part of our all-age worship at 10am. Parents/carers can then take under 3s to the coffee lounge where our creche includes some short stories from the bible, whilst children aged 3 and over are meeting in the Queen Margaret Hall for an interactive time of learning through stories, crafts, activities and more. Everyone is then invited to come back into church for the end of the service, where we share a little of what we've been learning. Coffee, juice and biscuits are available after the service.
Join One of our Teams
The work of our Kirk Session and of our Congregational Board is taken forward via nine action-oriented Teams. The leaders of these nine Teams meet together regularly as the Forum, pictured below as a round table. This is where Team Leaders share visions, plans and budgets. There are 5 Ministry Teams and 4 Support Teams. As the titles suggest, the Support Teams provide support of different kinds to the work of the Ministry Teams.
There are opportunities to become involved in any of these Teams, see the “How to get involved” section within each Team description or email the session clerk. Not sure what your gifts are and where you might best contribute? Click here.
What’s the difference between a Team and a Committee?
- Committees talk about doing things, Teams actually get things done.
- Committees seek to hear every voice, Teams seek to become one voice.
- Committees share their opinions, Teams share their lives.
- Committees have a chairman, Teams have a coach-leader-facilitator.
- Committees take notes, Teams measure results.
- Committees talk about issues, Teams strategize for results.
- Committees vegetate, Teams collaborate.
The Kirk Session is the policy maker and final decision-making body responsible for moving the vision forward via five new Ministry Teams.
The Congregational Board is responsible for the practical arrangements of the congregation as shaped by the Church of Scotland ensuring legal and statutory requirements are met via four Support Teams.
