Bubblegum & Fluff

All the Primary 6 pupils in Arbroath and District recently had the opportunity to experience Bubblegum & Fluff, a two-hour session that attempts to get to the heart of Christmas and strip away the ‘fluff’.  Members of the Old & Abbey were involved with the children from Ladyloan, Colliston and Haysehead.  The photographs below will give you a flavour of the children’s experience.

Pastoral Care Afternoon Tea

A large number of our elderly members gathered in the hall in the afternoon of Sunday 29th November for a short Carol service and afternoon tea.  Dolly led the service and a group of volunteer singers helped with the Carol singing.  Lyla Martin was accompanist.  A big thank you is due to the Pastoral Care Workgroup for organising the event and to the Pastoral visitors for transporting and entertaining those who were able to come along.

Angelic Advent Messy Church

Friday 27th November was our Messy Church celebration of the start of Advent.  The families enthusiastically worked on the crafts, making angels, sheep, stars, snowmen, wall hangings, decorating Christmas biscuits and writing their wishes for Christmas on baubles for the tree.  Dolly and Gavin told the story of the angel visiting Mary and then everyone joined in a ‘party food’ tea.  The photos below show a good time being had by all.
