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.

The box will be available throughout Holiday Club week so any donations are welcome!

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!

We’re on a break over the Summer Holidays. We’ll be announcing our restart date soon.

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.

Elderly Friendship Group

Looking for some company? Fancy a blether with a cuppa? Or want to join in a singalong of some old favourites?  Then 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.  We meet every second Wednesday for a fun morning of activities led by the children including a snack and time to chat and unwind.

We’re having a break over the School Holidays. Dates of our next meetings will be announced soon.
