HOLIDAY CLUB 2017

This year’s Holiday Club “Guardians of Ancora” will run from 7-11 August in East Calder Church Hall.
The task of the Guardians will be to find a lost story-treasure, return it to the Hall of Memory and explore the story that it represents.
We already have a good number of volunteers and, if you would like to be involved with the running of the Holiday Club, there will be a meeting for all volunteers in East Calder Church Hall on Thursday 23 March at 7.30pm.

KOSY KAFF

The Kosy Kaff is still looking for volunteers to help and/or bake. We would hope to have sufficient help to ensure that each duty only comes around once in every 4-6 weeks.
Thank you to everyone who is already involved in this outreach.

THE SINGING GROUP

The Singing Group meets weekly throughout the year on Tuesday evenings at 7.45pm in Kirknewton Church for an hour of singing, laughter and fellowship followed by coffee and biscuits. Although primarily formed to rehearse the hymns for the Sunday services we also practise other music - spiritual, classical and popular. We aim to sing several pieces a year as a group at some of the important anniversaries within the Church, such as Easter and Christmas. We would love to welcome anyone who just likes to sing to come and join us any Tuesday evening.
