Bethany Hall

Koffee Time meets today (Thursday) from 10 a.m.-noon. With the official arrival of summer we look forward to getting outside to enjoy the sunshine but suspect we will need to wait another week. Thought for the Day will be brought by Alex Ferrie a frequent visitor to Koffee Time. On Sunday we meet at 10.30 a.m. for the Breaking of Bread service. Coffee Time follows at 11.30 a.m. and the Bible Teaching will be brought to us by Alan Bowman no stranger to Bethany Hall. We have now completed the series of visits over the winter to Summerford, Dorrator Court and Wallside Grange and plans are afoot to recommence our visits from the end of August. We appreciate the invitations into these local care homes and will be remembering our friends there at prayer meetings in Bethany over the summer. We meet for Bible Teaching on Tuesday evening at 7.30 p.m. in Bethany when Steven Marshall from Shieldhill will bring us the second of two messages for this month.

Parish Church

The first of our Thursday evening services was launched last week entitled, somewhat subtly, ‘The Thursday Thing’. These events will run initially for five weeks every Thursday evening, so why not come along to the Church on Dorrator Road (just next to the Copper Top) and try our brand new evening worship at 7.30 p.m. It promises to be different, an alternative to the traditionally anticipated services usually offered on a Sunday morning, it could be just what you’re looking for! Of course, the same warm welcome awaits you for our regular Sunday worship at 11.00 a.m. We invite everyone to come and join us, young people from tiny tots to teens and the not so young, all starting off in Church before the younger ones make their way through to Junior Church for fun and games. The Allsorts Toddler Group continues to meet in our Brown Street Hall on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9.30-11.30 a.m. Although we are just about at the end of the session, an open door and a smiling welcome awaits under-fives and their parents and carers. So come along, we’re a friendly bunch who welcome all. Why not drop in to see what’s on offer at the CPC community Charity Shop on Main Street, Camelon, near the pedestrian crossing. We have a wide range of quality goods available at excellent prices. Open Monday to Thursday 10.00 a.m.-4.00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10.00 a.m.-1.00 p.m.
