Welcome to our website 

Message from the Minister:

Each Sunday we come together to worship God, learn about His love shown through Jesus, seek His strength for whatever we face in our daily lives and grow in faith.

During the week many Church members serve their neighbours and communities in a variety of ways - in Church activities, at work, at home or through charity-work.

You are welcome to join us at any of our regular Sunday Services or mid-week activities.

May we share the Peace, Joy and Love that God gave to us with all that we meet.

Your minister,

Fiona

 

Rev Fiona Wilson and Richard Wilson

This year our Harvest Service is in two parts. Firstly we will again collect items for the local Dumfriesshire Food Bank. The children at the Primary School also wish to contribute again.

The format will be simpler this year. Only trays of fruit and small posies of flowers or potted plants will be used on the windows. Please hand in contributions for these on Saturday, 29thSeptember between 9:30 and 11:00 am. Thank you.
