Messy Church

Following on from our summer Holiday Club, our team are launching a new event – and everyone’s invited!

Join us from 3pm to 5pm on Sunday 23 September for Messy Church!

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 (we’ll have tea and coffee on supply for the adults)

It’s a jam packed 2 hours of crafts, music, videos and fun. And it gets better, we’ll even provide your tea! So that’s fun, chat and your dinner at no cost!

Check out our page for more information.

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.

Cafe Connect

Looking for some company? Fancy a blether with a cuppa? Or want to join in a singalong of some old favourites?  Then Cafe Connect, our weekly 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 every Wednesday at 10.30am.

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 26 September at 2pm.

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 6 October 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.

Holiday Club

Click here for more information about Holiday Clubs at the Old Kirk!

With over 120 children attending,  and ending with an incredible turnout at our annual celebration and BBQ event, TeamBuilders was our biggest and best Holiday Club yet!

We have an amazing team who make Holiday Club possible but it couldn’t be done without the incredible support of our congregation, our brilliant leader Diane, our wonderful minister Amanda and the many people who help behind the scenes. To everyone who helped us: THANK YOU!

But the biggest thanks has to go to all our 120+ TeamBuilders who blew us away with their enthusiasm and ability to go through gallons of paint during the week! A special thank you also for your items for Storehouse and for all your donations including via our TeamBuilders quiz.

The exciting news is that we’re planning on running Messy Church in September so the fun doesn’t stop here! We’ll be announcing more info including dates soon but kidZone, teenZone and our Youth Group are available every week.

Check out our Facebook page for all the pics and videos from TeamBuilders. Here’s just some of the highlights!

Team Teen

Team Teen is our summer evening programme for all young adults at Secondary School. Taking place in the evenings of Holiday Club week, these popular sessions place a focus on teamwork and friendship in a relaxed fun way.

We’ve had a great week of evening activities with most of Team Teen also helping at TeamBuilders. Thanks to everyone for your help this week!

Check out our Facebook page for all the photos from Team Teen 2018.

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!

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.
