If anyone connected with the congregation wishes to profess their faith and take communion for the first time they should speak to one of the ministers or elders.

Parking: To help with the parking situation on a Sunday morning, we have permission for you to park over at the entrance to William Paterson’s yard.  Meanwhile, if you are first to park on the grass bank across the road, try and park as far in as possible, to allow for more cars to utilise that space.

Gift Aid Forms:  If you donate money to the church and you are a tax-payer – the congregation can gain additional income at no cost to you.  Therefore we would urge you to fill in this Gift Aid Form unless you have already done so.   Last year we received almost £20,000 back from the government in Gift Aid.
