Holiday Club

TeamBuilders! – Monday 23 to Friday 27 & Sunday 29 July

TeamBuilders, our Summer Holiday Club takes place from Monday 23 to Friday 27 July followed by our celebration Closing Ceremony & BBQ extravaganza on Sunday 29 July.

This year’s Holiday Club has a sports theme so we’re inviting athletes and competitors to join us at the Old Kirk Stadium for our biggest Holiday Club yet! Sports not your thing? Don’t worry, we won’t be making you do 100 metre sprints! While we’re keeping our plans under wraps for now, we guarantee another packed week of noise, music, mess and mayhem!

Online bookings open on Saturday 2 June at 9am!

Our online booking system opens on Saturday 2 June at 9am (the link will appear here as well as our Facebook Page and Twitter feed on the day). With over 120 children attending in 2017, our last Holiday Club was hugely popular and fully booked within 2 hours so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

Though its a while yet until Holiday Club 2018, kidZone takes place every Sunday in the Old Kirk at 10.45am. There’s loads of music, crafts and special events including Movie Nights so come give it a try!

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. Our Youth Group for S1+ also meets every Sunday evening.

Here’s some of the highlights from last years Holiday Club, Pyramid Rock:

 

The BIG Clean

We’re looking for volunteers to join us on Saturday 28 April at 9am for our big Spring Clean.

This should only take a couple of hours and will involve clearing out old items etc and taking them to the rubbish dump. All help appreciated!

Elderly Friendship Group

Looking for some company? Fancy a blether with a cuppa? Or want to join in a singalong of some old favourites?  The our new Wednesday Morning group might be for you.

Loneliness is an increasing issue for people as they get older so we’re delighted to be helping Deanburn Primary School in an effort to tackle this.  If you have any donations of boardgames, picture books and other items suitable for adults and 5-10 year olds to share then please hand them into the Church Office.

Our new group starts on Wednesday 2 May and meets in the Church Hall from 10.30am to 11.30am.

Men of Faith

Men of Faith is our fellowship group open to males from any denomination across Bo’ness and the wider area. We meet on the 1st Saturday of every month at 9am to enjoy a hearty breakfast followed by praise and a short talk.

We next meet for breakfast and praise on Saturday 5 May  at 9am.

We have a great bunch of regulars from various denominations, church backgrounds or neither and our invitation remains open to everyone. So if you fancy something different to start your weekend (or don’t have anything in for breakfast!) then come give us a visit.

Guild

guildThe Guild is a movement within the Church of Scotland for both women and men and has been part of the life of the Old Kirk for over 100 years.

We welcome all who would wish to join us at our meetings, regardless of gender, age or anything else. We meet every fortnight at 2pm in the West Room and promise a warm welcome!

We next meet on Wednesday 9 May at 2pm.

Youth Group

Are you in S1+? Are you bored on a Sunday night? Need somewhere to hang out with your friends? Then we can help!

Our Youth Group meets every Sunday from 7pm to 9pm in the Hall.

Music, Snacks, Outings, Ping Pong, Pool and much more!

Drivers needed!

If you’ve been out and about in Bo’ness, the chances are that you’ve seen our minibus on its travels!

As well as providing free transport to our services and events, the minibus is used by various organisations throughout the week. This, of course, wouldn’t be possible without our great team of volunteers. But we’re always on the lookout for more helpers!

If you have a driving licence (which includes a D1 licence) and some spare time now and again, why not help out? We’ll even let you choose which radio station to put on the stereo!

To find out more, please contact us or speak to Scott Nicol after Sunday worship.

Rag Bag Collection

Do you have any old clothing that you’re looking to get rid of? Then don’t throw them in the bin, bring them to Church instead!

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.
