Can you help?
Would like to join our team? There are lots of different ways you could be involved. Maybe you enjoy working with children and families? Perhaps you enjoy art and crafts and have some skills to share? Or maybe you like cooking and would like to help with our simple evening meal? Are you musical? Do you like having fun?
The Messy Church At Home kit is available by email just now but Messy Church is normally held once a month on a Sunday afternoon between 4pm and 6pm. As a Messy Church we try to express the values of Christ Centredness, Hospitality, Creativity, Celebration and be all age, as equal priority is given to the needs of adults and children.
If you would like to know more I’d love to hear from you.

Church of Scotland, General Assembly
The General Assembly has passed a £11M deficit budget. Each presbytery has been given a number of ministries it is allowed to call (Fife Presbytery just over 44, down from nearer 60), and by 2025 the Church can only afford 600 ministers and deacons. Presently there are 700 ministers in post plus 151 locums and 137 ministry development staff. Currently there are 299 vacancies, and by 2025 we can afford 60.
