We were very sorry to hear that Mrs Margaret Neish, Springfield Road, had passed away, aged 100.

We extend our condolences to her son Donald; daughter Christine and her husband Alan; and her grandchildren Douglas and Jamie, along with Jamie's wife Erika.

We pray that the family will know God’s comfort at this time of sorrow.


Sunday School Snippet
Welcome back to Sunday School Snippets!

This week the Bible Class had a new teacher, Jonathan Maciver. We were learning about the early church and how many people believed in the Lord. Our memory verse was Acts 5:29. We must obey God rather than men.

We would all like to say a big thank you to Johan for being a great Sunday School Teacher for Term One and Two. We learnt lots from our time with you and had fun doing lots of different activities and crafts.  Thank you from all in the Bible Class.

FCYC 2023 Registration Reminder!
Registration for Free Church Youth Camps 2023 is now open. 

God willing, there will be 9 camps in summer 2023 and all the information about them (including Team Leaders & Costs) are online.

Free Church Youth Camps are a brilliant week of fun and games, activities, challenges, and lots of tasty food. But most importantly they are a week of discipleship for young Christians in our churches, and an opportunity for young people that aren’t yet Christians to learn more about Jesus and His relevance to their lives. It is amazing to see and hear of the impact the Free Church Youth Camps have had over the last 62 years, please pray with us for that to continue for many years to come.

The registration deadline is Monday 30th January 2023. For a little more info, this short news update gives you more details on the 9 camps on offer. The FCYC website and social media pages will also be posting information  about the camps over the registration period.
