A crèche is available every Sunday morning and all babies and pre-school children are welcome. Our crèche meets in the church for the start of the service at 11:00 before being taken over to the church hall. There are always two adults to care for your little one, but of course, you are welcome to stay with your child if you prefer.

From time to time someone needs a little bit of extra help – maybe after an accident, an illness or some crisis in their lives. Or maybe just to get to church on Sunday.
We are a group of a dozen or so who are happy to help out on a short term basis as and when the need arises.
Do you need some help or know someone who does?
Contact: Morag MacLeod, Tel: 01505 345294.
