Popcorn & Cake

At the beginning of June we were delighted to welcome the P5 children from Ladyloan and from Hayshead primary schools to Popcorn & Cake – a morning session that, through drama, crafts, stories and song, is designed to explain Pentecost.

The pictures below show the Wednesday session with Ladyloan:

Rocky Rescuers Messy Church

The last Messy Church before the summer break was held on Friday 27th May and, once again, brought 60 people together for the evening’s activities. ‘Rocky Rescuers’ – the story of the Good Samaritan – was the theme, with crafts reflecting this and even an opportunity to learn a little first aid.  We very much hope to see our Messy Church families back with us on Friday 23rd September.

Have a look at everyone engrossed in the various activities!

The African Children’s Choir at the Old & Abbey

On the evening of Thursday 12th May, eighteen children and the leaders of this year’s African Children’s Choir arrived in Arbroath for their concert the following evening.  The children, all from Uganda, spent two nights with six host families to whom we are very grateful.  During Friday they worked diligently on their schoolwork before resting prior to the very energetic evening concert.  Meals were cooked in the church kitchen by a hardworking team and thoroughly enjoyed by our guests.

The concert was well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by all.  We were delighted through ticket sales, donations and gift aid to have raised in excess of £2000 for the charity ‘Music for Life’ which will ensure that these eighteen children are guaranteed an education to allow them to fulfil their dreams.

The pictures below were taken during the concert and also at the West Links on the Saturday morning where one of the host families took their visitors to enjoy the play park.
