We had an excellent start after the summer break with regular good attendance. Our subject “Friendships” ran for a few lessons – helping each other and caring for everyone – even those who do not like us.
We meet every second and fourth Sunday of the month – but in December we will meet every Sunday in Advent with the first of Advent on 3rd December. The children will take it in turn to light the Advent candle and say an Advent prayer before we go down to the hall.
Shona Clark and Jim Milroy will once again join forces to rehearse a few songs with us for the Family Service which this year will be on Christmas Eve 24th December at 10:15am. What would we do without them – we are so grateful to have such musical talents amongst us!
Rehearsals will start on Sunday 26th November – but we will also have a lesson for each Sunday and do some Christmas Arts & Crafts. Our subjects for the four Advent Sundays will be talking about HOPE, PEACE, JOY and LOVE.
Christmas Party: On Sunday 17th December we will have our Christmas Party in the hall straight after church – there will be food and some fun and games - with the appearance of a very special guest! Santa will stop by Mearns Kirk Sunday Club around Noon.
As usual – all parents, grandparents , uncles and aunties are invited to come along, have a bite and a cuppa – and get their picture taken with Santa!
Family Service: On Sunday 24th December @ 10:15am - the children will arrive in their costumes and we will stay in church for the full service.
A special Thank You to the new helpers this year – Lucy, Claire, Laura and young Zara – which enabled us to continue running the Sunday Club. All the parents that come along are also hands-on – so many hands make light work.
Sunday Club will start again on the second Sunday in January – on the 12th and then 26th January 2024 at 10:15am in the church as usual.
