Creche /Sunday Club and Bible Club during morning service

Tea /Coffee after morning service
All Welcome

 

The congregation enjoys a blend of Scottish Psalms and Hymns using 'New Church Hymnary' (CH4), 'Mission Praise' and Songs of Fellowship, with Scripture readings from the New International Version of the Bible, with pew bibles available. Members of the congregation participate in a rota to read the morning Scripture passage. There is a small but enthusiastic choir, always ready to welcome new members, with the praise supported and encouraged by our organist.
A bilingual Gaelic/English service is held during the Communion Seasons in March and in September.

The children attend the first part of the morning service, and after the children's talk, leave to pursue their own programme of study: Creche for the under 5s, Sunday Club for children of 5 to 10 years of age, and Bible Club for 11+ years, meeting in the Church Hall and Vestry.

The 'Learning Together' resources, produced by Scripture Union, form the core of the programme of study used by each group.
The children are encouraged to participate in Church services, such as 'family services', throughout the year, particularly for Harvest Thanksgiving and at Christmas-time. We also enjoy the benefits of the special talents of our Scripture Union Leaders who from time to time deliver children's addresses and lead all-age services.
Members of the Church family are also involved in a variety of activities outwith the actual church building, such as youth work, Scripture Union groups in schools, and organising and running an annual week-long Summer Mission for Primary and Secondary age children, with a re-union in Autumn. (Sometimes the team are invited to North Uist and Berneray, to organise mini-versions of Summer Missions).

Everyone involved in working with young people within the Church family have undergone Child Protection Training, and we also have a nominated Child Protection Co-ordinator.

The parish is divided into pastoral districts (approximately along the lines of the crofting 'townships' or districts) which are visited and cared for by Elders and other committed members of the church family who ensure that, for example, the quarterly newsletters are distributed, that contact is maintained with the house-bound, the sick, the elderly and infirm, and in fact all who are associated with the church but are unable to attend worship, for whatever reason. The pastoral visitors are also well-placed to help keep the Minister informed of any urgent needs within their respective areas.
