Thanks: Many thanks for the beautiful basket of flowers which we received last Sunday. They were much appreciated and helped us feel at home in our new house. Regards, Susan and Bob.
Bible Study: The Breakfast Bible Study Group meet a couple of times a month on Sunday mornings at 8.45 am. For their 2020 programme they have decided to try and cover the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation by following the “Essential 100” Bible reading challenge. This programme presents the main elements of the Bible in 20 segments, with 5 Bible passages in each segment. If you might be interested in joining the group and would like more information please speak to Andrew Herbert.
Baby & Toddlers Lego Club: After their Christmas break the Baby and Toddlers Group will restart on the morning of Friday 3rd Jan. So that families with older children are not prevented from coming we would like to run Lego Club in the small hall for primary age children while their younger siblings are in the large hall. We need a second adult to supervise the club alongside Andrew Herbert. If you are PVG checked and would like to help please speak to Carol or Andrew Herbert.
We are very excited to announce that we will be holding an Alpha Course here in Kinghorn in the New Year. It will be on
Thursday evenings for 11 weeks from 23rd January.
For the course to run we need a small army of people. Please think and pray about whether you can be involved at all. A sign up sheet will be coming soon.
Participants- Alpha is for anyone- no matter what stage you are at in your journey with God. Could this be what you need to help you take the next steps towards becoming a Christian or to grow more in your faith? Or are there people you could invite? We will have cards available soon for anyone to hand out as invitations.
Hosts and helpers for the small groups- these people help to look after the people in each group and facilitate the discussion.
Chefs and kitchen helpers- each week’s session will start with a meal and so we will need a few people each week to cook and serve the food.
Set up and clear up- we will need a couple of people each week to help to put tables and chairs out, set up the dvd player and screen and then help to clear up at the end of the evening.
Spreading the word and praying- everyone can help with this one! In- vite people (they don’t have to be from Kinghorn or have any involvement with the church- everyone is welcome) and pray for the course. Both for the spiritual aspect and the practical things.
