Here is a list of the activities / events which are being planned for children, young people and families up to the school summer holidays which begin on 27th June 2024.

I encourage you to pass all this information to any family members, friends or neighbours who you think may be interested in joining us at some or all of the following.

NOAHS ARK MESSY CHURCH - Sunday 5th May from 2-4pm in the Glebe St Hall. We will have lots of animals for everyone to hold and hear about and get photos taken as well.

There is a poster advertising this event throughout the church and halls with all the details but EVERYONE is welcome but all children must be accompanied by a responsible adult(s).

Messy Church is scheduled to take place on the first Sunday of every month from 2-4pm. Please spread the word and invite others to join us.


TOURNAMENT – Sunday 19th May from 2-4pm at St Kenneths Primary

School West Mains Rd East Kilbride. This is our 4th event in memory of our dear friend Angus – we will hopefully have 7/8 teams join us for this fun afternoon of football, fun, food & fellowship. Come along and support our team and be encouraged by almost 70 children and young people having a great time.

SUMMER HOLIDAY CLUB 2024 – The provisional week is week commencing Monday 5th – Friday 9th August every morning from 10am until

12.30pm in the Church, Lower Hall & Upper Hall – Registration forms will be available as soon as the leaders meet to finalise the date and theme for this year’s club.  We also have plans to have a family party afternoon or evening on the Saturday following the holiday club as well as showcasing the week-long club at an all-age family service on the Sunday. Its not too late to get involved, even if you can only help for 1 or 2 mornings, that would be greatly appreciated – if you think you would like to get involved, please let Iain know asap.


March in the Glebe St Hall – We had a packed church hall with around 60 in attendance – It was a great expression of intergenerational church at its best with children, young people, families and members of both the congregation and some representing Church groups all in attendance having fun and fellowship together in a fun, enjoyable but competitive way.  There were only a few points separating the top 4 teams and it all came down to the final round to determine the eventual winners of the gold medals and Centenary Trophy.  There are a few pictures of the winning teams and the packed hall elsewhere in this magazine.

EASTER MORNING FAMILY SERVICE – we had fewer children than normal due to the school easter holidays but those who were able to join us contributed to the service by reading the Bible lessons, leading us in prayer, hunting for eggs and getting involved in the children’s address led by Stewart. I hope you agree that the children and young people enhance worship and bring a different dimension to it.

Thank you for all your encouragement, support, prayers and friendship – I really appreciate it so very much.
