Community of Faith Conference

At the beginning of 2016, the Community of Faith Conference will be running in Glasgow, Dumfries and Inverness for those that are involved in ministry with children and young people all over Scotland. The theme for the 2016 events will be ‘for churches with few or no children’.

In February 2015 we held the first conference which was a national weekend event themed on the ‘Family of God’ and it was greatly appreciated by those that attended. Whilst recognising the importance of national weekend events for 2016 we are taking the conference on the road and just holding it for a day to try and open it up to more people.

Each day will be very similar with a keynote, some workshops, times for people to share what is going on in their own situations and lunch will be provided.

Booking for each event is now available online and will close 2 weeks before the event unless our maximum numbers have been reached before then.

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.
