Our next Messy Church evening will be on Friday 29th January 2016 from 5.30 t0 7pm in the Church Hall. We very much hope that you will join us for fun, friendship and food – as well as another Bible story and lots of craft activities.
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.
At the last Tuesday Coffee Morning before the Christmas break the children of the Abbey Playgroup delighted a large gathering by singing their Christmas songs. Rev Dolly Purnell thanked the leaders and the children for giving everyone a welcome touch of Christmas spirit!
On Saturday 5th December teachers and pupils from the senior Sunday School travelled to Braehead Soar for some festive fun. The weather wasn’t so good but once there everyone had a fantastic time sledging, bowling and trying out the laser station as the photos below show.
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.
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.
