We now have a Rag Bag Collection point outside the church office for any textile items that you wish to recycle. Items must be bagged and can include clothing, paired shoes, bags and belts. For each kilo donated, the Old Kirk will receive 40p which will go towards church funds.

Holiday Club

Click here for more information about Holiday Club 2017!

After an incredible demand for places, the Old Kirk was rocking at the end of July with our biggest Holiday Club ever! Over 120 children took a trip to Ancient Egypt for an action packed week of games, crafts, songs, stories, competitions and much more!

We had an amazing week of noise, mess and mayhem which ended with ‘The Pyramid RockFest’, a spectacular (and wet!) celebration event followed by our annual BBQ. We’d like to give a massive THANK YOU! to everyone who made it possible.¬†There’s too many to mention but special thanks to our incredible team of leaders lead by Diane, our amazing congregation for all their support and donations but most importantly to the 120+ Pyramid Rockers who rocked the Old Kirk!

A special thanks also for all your donations to Storehouse and well done to our minister Amanda for surviving her first Holiday Club!

The exciting news is that we’re planning some special follow up events later this year. We’ll be announcing more information soon so keep checking here and our Facebook page for more information!

In the meantime, kidZone takes place every Sunday in the Old Kirk at 10.45am. There’s loads of music, crafts and special events including Movie Nights. Our young adult group, teenZone is also available for anyone in Secondary School and includes opportunities to get involved in our multimedia and Holiday Club preparations.

Here’s just some of the highlights from Pyramid Rock:
