Introduction to Sunday Club

We meet in the church on Sunday mornings at 9.45am during school term time. Most children sit in the front of the church on arrival. We join the congregation for the first part of the service then head out to the hall after the children’s address and hymn. There we have great fun exploring bible stories, crafts, games, music & musical instruments, dvd’s and  much more.

Sunday Club is led by Lorna, Alison, Aileen, Mhairi and Ruth

A warm welcome awaits all children and their friends to our Sunday Club.smiley
