News from Session

Session Clerks
Liz Ronald

The three Session Clerks have been kept busy since the last Newsletter went out  in the Autumn.

You will see for yourselves in the Newsletter the Advent & Christmas services  taking place at Mearns Kirk. We hope to see as many of you attending if at all  possible.

Recruitment

The latest news from Session is that we are currently recruiting for a Hall Caretaker / Cleaner for our Church & Church Halls, as the present cleaner wishes  to leave. We will keep you updated on this as we know more.

Communion

It has been tradition at Mearns Kirk to hold two Communion Services, morning  and afternoon. However the numbers attending the afternoon service have  dwindled and we now have decided it is no longer viable to open the Church for  so few.

However, I am pleased to tell you that Eddie, our locum minister, will hold a home communion for those who ask, if they cannot manage to the morning communion.

Mearns View Care Home

Eddie has forged links with Mearns View Care Home and has already visited  some of the residents there and met with staff. At the moment there are only  around 13 residents residing there but the home can take around 50 residents and the care home team are very keen to have links with Mearns Kirk. 

One of the residents already attends the Men’s Breakfast Club on a Friday morning.

Eddie held Communion at the care home on 5th November and intends  to take communion to the residents on every Communion Sunday.

If you would like to be a volunteer to accompany Eddie to Mearns View on communion afternoon and be part of a rota (you do not have to be an Elder to do  this) please give your name to one of the Session Clerks or to the Church Office. 

As there are only three communions per year you are unlikely to be asked more  than once a year. There is a possibility if you cannot attend Communion at  Mearns Kirk in the morning you may be able to join the group at Mearns View in  the afternoon.

Church Office

The Church Office will be closed for Christmas from 18th December to 3rd  January. 

All that remains is to wish all our congregation a very Happy and Peaceful  Christmas and Best Wishes for 2024.

Christina, Liz & Marje
