Our Church has a roll of approximately 700 with an average attendance of approximately 70 – 100 every Sunday, tea and coffee is served in the church after the servie, when there is a chance to meet and catch up with each other rather than rushing out the door.

Services

We meet every Sunday at Kirn Parish Church at 10.30 am see our Location page for details of where we are

Sunday School

We have an enthusiastic Sunday School who meet every week during morning service. At present there are about 15 children aged 3-12 who enjoy singing, stories, making things and participating in services. There is a rota of 6 adults who lead the Sunday School activities in discussion with the minister and deacon. We have a prizegiving service for our children in June every year and we always organise a barbeque or picnic at around the same time. In recent years this has been a joint celebration with the St. John’s Sunday School. The children also lead a nativity service in December each year and this is greatly enjoyed by the whole congregation.
