Summary report from meeting of Kirk Session on Thursday 20th November.
The Session met on Thursday and among the items discussed were the following suggestions from members of the congregation.
Sharing of roles & responsibilities.
There are a number of ‘duties’ which are outlined below that are required to be fulfilled each Sunday to ensure services run smoothly. We hope as many people as possible will volunteer for a role/roles and that these could be shared better among the congregation using a rota system.

What can you take on? All age groups are encouraged to participate. Have you any other thoughts/ideas on how our worship experience can be enhanced and that we ensure we are a welcoming and inviting church?
Songs of Praise evening–Your favourite hymns
It has been suggested that we have a praise evening (Early Spring) consisting of congregational singing, group singing, solo/duet or an instrumental of the congregation’s most popular favourite hymns. You will be invited to submit your favourite hymn in the New Year. It is planned to have a retiring offering towards a charity of the congregation’s choosing.
Please let us know your suggestions, comments or ideas. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated.
