Welcome to the New Kirk News for January 2017
Since the issuance of the first edition in September when we were just moving back into the new accommodation it has been an exciting time for the church. It has been lovely to see the congregation settle into the new sanctuary (everyone booking their special seat!) as well as welcoming new visitors.
We have loved seeing, with increasing regularity, the doors of the church wide open to welcome in the community. It has been encouraging to see the church used for the many diverse and exciting purposes which we have reported on in this issue.
From Quilt shows, coffee mornings and fairs to YORKIE talks, Kirk Session meetings and Guild events, the accommodation has been well used as intended.
A successful Alpha event has been ongoing on Thursday evenings with the accommodation proving to be particularly appropriate for the Alpha weekend and of course the “special services” including Remembrance Service, Harvest Festival and the Christmas events were all the more special in the new surroundings. We would wish to extend our thanks to Elizabeth Bruce for kindly sponsoring the
first edition. To help improve communication within the Church we intend running a Social Media Course on Saturday 18th February, if you are interested please speak to us.
We look forward to what 2017 will bring for St Johns and as always we are keen to receive your news to report on so please let us know by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org
