A Message from our Minister: July 2022

Dear Friends

Summer is here! All winter long, we long for the longer, sunny days, the colourful abundance around us, and some time to just relax a little. And that time is now! 

It’s so easy to just live from day to day, going through the motions, sometimes even wishing our days away. But if we do that, summer will be over before we know it… So let’s enjoy all the blessings the summer brings, and make the most of every single day!

The schools might be closed for summer, but the church is not! Please join us for worship every Sunday: During the month of July we have joint services at the West Kirk of Calder, at 10am; and during the month of August we have joint services at Polbeth Harwood Church, at 10am. Youngsters will be made very welcome, and after the children’s address they can go out to have some fun with our amazing team of youth volunteers.

In Ecclesiastes 3:12-13 (ICB), a very wise man said: “So I realize that the best thing for people is to be happy. They should enjoy themselves as long as they live. God wants everyone to eat and drink and be happy in his work. These are gifts from God.” So let’s follow his advice – this summer, and always!

May God bless you all,

Showstoppers - Holiday Club Information

Club Information

Our holiday club this summer has an exciting theatrical theme, from the stage to the cinema, slapstick fun, music, Rock stars, and dance covering all the performing arts you can imagine. We have a really exciting program planned for our club to suit every taste. The day for our guests starts at 10am when the kids join us at registration then the show begins! 

Everything we do throughout the morning is linked to the performing arts and our Bible Story of the day! Which is shared in a fun and friendly way! We have crafts, games, warm up choreography,  and a daily drama. All our guests will have their own dressing room "Themed Group" with their own theme tune too, and by the end of the week will have changed our Church in Polbeth into the most exciting Theatre, Polbeth has ever seen!

The club is free, it is open to any child who is age to start primary school this August 2022 and any child who is currently in P7 and starting high school after the summer. We have a wonderful team of dedicated volunteers who have all been PVG checked and have great skills for making this a memorable week for your child!

You can pick up a registration form in: Polbeth Harwood Church, The West Kirk Church or hall and Parkhead Primary school from the office from Wednesday 15 June 2022.

Your completed form can be returned to our post box in these locations.

Once we uplift your child's form, a confirmation email or text will then be sent to you confirming your child's place. (please note this can take up to a week)

Children must be dropped off and collected by an adult and their day starts at 10am and ends at 12:30pm

Our registration form is attached for you to  print off or complete.

The club fills very quickly, so to avoid disappointment book as soon as possible.

We also ask, should circumstances change after you have booked a place and our child cannot attend, please let us know so we can then offer that place to a child on our waiting list.
