We meet together to fellowship together and worship God on Sunday mornings at 10am. This is a family time and all ages are welcome. There is a children’s programme which runs during the service and creates a fun learning environment for the children to understand more about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
At special times, such as Easter and Christmas, service times may differ. These are notified on our facebook page.
We are a group of people committed to being Christ centred and community facing. The first Sunday of the month is when we share communion together. You are more than welcome to come and be part of our fellowship and worship on Sunday mornings.
Holiday Church is a family friendly informal church service for all ages that will run at least once every school holiday in 2012. It’s for people who like holidays, and like church to feel like a holiday! It is very different from most church services, but it is still church. We create, have fun, talk, laugh, sing, are occasionally quiet (just for moments!), pray, learn, eat together, listen to one another and create community.
Holiday Church is a place for families, for those who live alone, for young and old and all those in between. It’s where we can give thanks to God for all we love about life – and where we can ask God for help with the bits of life we find really tough.
Holiday Church is once a holiday, on a Sunday between 4.30 and 6.30 (the aim is to be home in time for a bath, story and bed, if you’re still young enough to have someone put you to bed!)
So what should we expect?
- · Crafts and activities for all ages – between 4.30-5.15ish, a variety of things to do around the theme, some practical, some musical, books to read with toddlers, and something that burns off energy for the energetic
- ·Sanctuary time – into the church for a short time of worship, bringing some of the things we’ve been doing before God (5.15-5.35)
- ·A meal together – a time to talk, celebrate…and, well, eat!
Do I need to be a member of St Ninian’s?
No, anyone is welcome.
Will my children be safe?
Holiday Church is a place where as parents or caregivers you are responsible for your children’s safety. We do everything we can to make the environment a safe one, but children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult who will actively care for them.
Do I need to register?
No, although it helps us to have contact details for emergencies and to keep you up to date with future plans/events, and to estimate numbers for food.
What does it cost?
There is no fixed charge for holiday Church. However, it does cost St Ninian’s to run the buildings, and to put on the meal, so there will be a Koha bowl both at the welcome desk and at the meal, if you would like to make a donation towards our running costs.
