Bethany Hall

While neighbours south of the border are just getting their summer holidays under way, here we are at the last Thursday when school children can join us for Koffee Time with their families before it will be back to school. There will be plenty of room for every one today (Thursday) from 10 a.m. till noon. Come along for a cuppa and a chat. There are a few seats left for the outing to St Andrews in September. The expected speaker on Sunday at the Bible Hour at 11.50 a.m. is good friend Alex Ferrie from Falkirk. On Monday, August 18 we meet for Koffee Time Extra from 2-3.30 p.m. This tends to be a good time to meet people. We may even manage some music. We meet on Tuesday, August 19 at 7.30 p.m. for prayer and a short epilogue. You are welcome to join us at these times.
