COG is a group of ladies who, 26 years ago felt there was a need for a social/informative evening which would allow working women who could only find time in an evening to attend a social gathering of like minded Christian women. We meet every Wednesday from 8-10 pm in the Kirn Church Centre, Hunter Street over the winter months from  September to March. We have a variety of speakers, a theatre visit, a Christmas dinner and other evenings when we get together to enjoy the company. All very friendly happy evenings.

Our membership is not now just ladies from Kirn Church but is drawn from other churches in the area including some non chruch members. This makes up a very diverse and well balanced group. At present we have a membership of between 35-40.

COG does not fundraise within the group but any organisation within the church and the community looking for helpers will find our members very willing to assist

Please fell free to come along and join us any Wednesday night and enjoy a happy 2 hours of fellowship followed by a cup of tea and a biscuit.


The first meeting of the 2009-2010 session of COG takes place on 9th September in the Church Centre starting at 8.00 pm.

A copy of the current syllabus is on the notice board of the crypt.  Do take a look ladies, and if you have not yet been to COG do think about coming along.  We’d love to have you with us.

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.
