Churches are allowed to re-open with restricted numbers and all COVID precautions in place from Palm Sunday. For MS&F the first service from the church in Ferryden will be on Sunday 4th April at 4.15pm, and fortnightly thereafter. As before, for social distancing, numbers have to be restricted and so it will be necessary to 'book'. You can do this by sending an e_mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The next Sunday afternoon service will be on 25th July.
Meantime our main services will continue each week on our YouTube channel, MSandF Church, premiering at 10.45am each Sunday morning.
NEWS ABOUT SERVICES
We are planning towards a return to in-person worship for the morning service on Sunday 15th August. There are a few things that need to be put in place for that to happen and as we know anything can happen so it's not a confirmed date but it is what we are working towards. The pre-recorded service will stop at that point but we plan to livestream the service from the Church and that will be available via our YouTube channel live or you will also be able to watch it later. The equipment required for live streaming has been installed but training of people to operate it still has to take place. If this is something you would like to be involved in, please contact Geoff.
JOIN IN A WALK TO THE LIGHTHOUSE
On Sunday 1st August there will be another church family walk from Ferryden pier to the lighthouse leaving at 2.30pm. There is a bench half way and a table near the start if you can't make it all the way. If you wish, bring a small picnic with you! Those who came last time enjoyed the get together, so please join in and meet up with others in the church family.
GARDENING - or SNOOKER ? - Cowan Style
In preparation for Holiday Club, Pete, members and friends helped mid week to transform the former waste ground at side of hall, behind the gates into a fun area for outside Club activities.
SUMMER FUN - 'RETURN to the WILD WEST' HOLIDAY CLUB
The great news is that MS&F Church is planning to hold a holiday club again this summer in the Ferryden Hall. For our theme we are returning to the Wild West for lots of fun and games and stories about people who met Jesus.
We are working hard to make sure everything is done in a Covid secure way and that means we will have to reduce our usual numbers and have a much smaller club this year. As a result we are going to increase the age at which children can register and only take the older ones this year; from those going into Primary 4 to those about to leave Primary 7. Sorry if this is a disappointment!
The club is planned to run during the last week of the school holidays from Monday 2nd - Friday 6th August from 10am-12noon and, as usual, is free of charge.
Spaces are limited so if you would like to apply to come then please contact email@example.com as soon as possible to request a registration form. Or you can phone Edith Fraser on 07909336347 for one.
Hope you can join us! The Holiday Club team :)
This highlights our partnership working with New Solutions which is an organisation supporting mental well-being in young people.
Di and Meg from the Mission team have been volunteering with them at their summer club. The picture is of the director Gail Penman. MS&F Church logo is visible on the display board.
