Messy Church fun

Peterhead Methodist Church has been running a very successful Messy Church which has gone from strength to strength.

This organisation, meeting during the morning of the first Saturday of each month, has brought together families in a fun and informal gathering to be taught about God with crafts and worship being featured.

It has been intimated that the Saturday sessions have stopped now for the period of the holidays but everyone will be welcomed back on Saturday, September 1, at 10am till 12.30pm. Incidentally, this all started in July 2010 and thanks are due to the organisers and all the helpers and also the families who have given their support.

On Sunday, July 8, in Old Deer Church commencing at 10.30am, morning worship will be led by the Rev. Sheila Kirk. A warm invitation and welcome is extended to everyone.

There is no Sunday School. Crèche facilities are available during the service and teas will be served after the close of worship.

Then still on Sunday, July 8, there is a service in Fetterangus Church at 6pm. Another from the biblical “Heroes and Villians” series will be featured, the service being led by the Rev. Sheila Kirk and again everyone is very welcome. There will be a time of fellowship afterwards with teas served.

Peterhead Fishermen’s Mission invites and welcomes all who are able to join in the Nightcap Service on Sunday, July 8, at 8pm.

On Thursday, June 14, the Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Tippner, from Kelso, USA, was inducted to St. Fergus Parish Church and to the Peterhead Parish Grouping after a vacancy at St. Fergus of almost 10 years.

This was a very special evening for all present.

Christian greetings and best wishes reach out to the friends at St. Fergus Parish Church along with their new minister.

Blythswood Care has advised that the next visit of the charity’s collecting vehicle to Peterhead and district will be on Thursday, July 12. The places of call will still be the former Focus car park, Peterhead, followed by Crimond and Fraserburgh Leisure Centre, all at the normal times of collection.
