A busy year for Caddonfoot Youth (formerly Sunday school) ended with the annual prize-giving and presentation in the church.
Youngsters studied the Old and New Testaments, raised £220 for Christian Aid’s Count Your Blessings project, including a baking stall, while they also sang songs, listened to stories and watched DVDs, among other things. The presentations ended with a “Bridge Too Far” from Catherine and Georgie Bird.
Others involved throughout the year were Alex Bird and James Macfarlane, along with other children, who were thanked for their efforts as well as the leaders, Trina Bird and Clare Macfarlane.
Last Sunday, Father’s Day, the service was conducted by Roy Owen and the lessons read by Jim Hayes.
Tributes were paid to the late elder, John Gebbie, at his funeral service conducted by the Reverend Haisley Moore when the lessons were read by Lord Steel.
The congregational board met on Thursday and the vacancy committee meets tomorrow (Friday).
June 23 sees a joint service in Trinity Church for the Kirkin’ of the Braw Lad. There will not be a service in Caddonfoot.
