The Church 

Principles 

ORGANISATION

Church Leadership:

The Church has a Leadership Team or ‘Assembly Council’. Currently the members of the Leadership Team are Richard and Norma Iredale, Eddie and Lynn Irvine and Sarah Watkins. Eddie and Lynn, as well as Norma and Richard, are certified Partners In Harvest ministers. In addition the church is served by a number of Department and Home Group Leaders.

Worship Band:

The band believes that worship should be led by those who themselves are truly worshipping. Although they seek to achieve a high technical standard their primary emphasis is to magnify God through praise and worship and to lead others into experiencing His Presence.

Teen Church (Ages – June of Primary 7 upwards):

The aim of Teen Church is to provide an environment which is relevant to young people, to learn about and develop in their relationship with God. Teen Church meets every Sunday morning. There is also a Teen’s Home Group which meets during the week. Regular social events are also arranged and Teens have frequent opportunity to attend larger youth events in the area.

Children’s Church (Age – Primary School):

The aim of Children’s Church is to provide a safe but fun environment where primary age children can learn more about God. A Sunday morning usually consists of a time of Kid’s praise and worship, an energetic game or two and a bible story and message. They often finish with some craft activities and, of course, a snack!

Little Children’s Church (Age – Pre-School):

Little Children’s Church is NOT simply a crèche where little ones are looked after. Rather, the aim is to provide a safe place where your child will feel secure and loved and be able to learn about our Father God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. (The Little Children’s Church is not currently running. There is an area set up next to the main hall with an audio feed for parents to take small children if they wish)

Child Protection:

The Church has a Child Protection Policy approved by the Churches Child Protection Advisory Service. In addition every adult working with children and young people is required to have a PVG Membership Certificate issued by Disclosure Scotland.
