Volunteers needed to re-open youth group

Saturday 8th April 2023
EH & AF

Could you help us restart the Anchor Section of the Boys' Brigade and Girl's Association? We're looking for parents, former BB members, friends or family or church members or members of their families. The boys and girls are in Primary 1-3 and we're proposing to meet from 6-7pm on a night which suits the leaders' availability.

Hoping you are having as good a Christmas as you possibly can. We had about 50 adults to the 4pm service on Christmas Eve - lots of noise, smiles and great singing. And to have some new folk visiting with us at 11am on Christmas morning was just the spirit of Christmas in a nutshell: please enjoy the service, with so many Christmas Carols, via the Youtube icon on the front page.
