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. It’s a fun hour of activities led by the children and includes snacks, activities and some time to chat and unwind.
Join us every Wednesday during School Term at 10.30am.
Messy Church is our new programme designed for families and children of all ages. Everyone’s invited to join in the fun!
Messy Church is a fun jam packed 2 hours of crafts, music, videos, stories and much more. It’s relaxed, informal and focused on fun but it gets better, we’ll even provide your tea! So that’s fun, chat and your dinner at no cost!
Details of our next Messy Church session will be announced in January.
All are welcome to join us and pre booking isn’t required, you can just turn up on the day. But the best bit is that Messy Church is open to everyone! Yes that’s right, everyone! Messy Church is designed for families so children can bring their parents/guardians etc to join in the fun.
Check out the pictures on our Facebook page for a taste of what we get up to!
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 onSaturday 5 January 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.
