We have another amazing week planned for Monday 7 to Sunday 13 August 2017 for primary school children in the company of Nutty Professor A.M.A.Zing who will baffle and excite with extraordinary experiments from his mobile laboratory! We will have many games, songs, crafts and activities as usual. This year we are going to use the story of Moses and the escape from Egypt ("The Prince of Egypt" film follows this story) and will think about the different parts of that story and how it still speaks us today about the themes of belonging, listening, trusting, protecting, and more.
The Summer Club Team has been hard at work devising the activities and crafts all ready for the children. With an extra week in this year's summer holidays you know the children will be needing something different! So please book now following the link above.
Great News! At last our plans for the Living Well Cafe at Ferryhill Parish Church are coming to fruition with the opening of our Living Well Cafe on Thursday 20th April 2017. This facility is in recognition of the need to support people with memory loss or dementia and their families or carers and is already well established at Newhills and Oldmachar Parish Churches, so if you are aware of anyone who would benefit from attending please let us know so that we can determine how many people may be accommodated. The Cafe will run on Thursday afternoons, initially on a fortnightly basis, between 1pm and 3pm. South Holburn Church is beginning the process of investigating the possibility of joining us in this exciting new venture and is actively involved in the preparation for opening on 20th April. Thank you to everyone who has responded so willingly to our request for volunteers; it really is appreciated. Of course our door is always open for more help and if you wish to do so, on a rota basis, please do not hesitate to contact either Rita King Tel. 01224 572391 or Shona Matthew Tel. 01224 704378 for more information.
Young people from P7 up to S6 ages are very welcome to join us, meeting in the foyer and hall of the church on Sunday evenings (2nd and 4th Sundays) at 6:30 p.m., finishing around 8:30 p.m.
You will find more information here.
You may have taken advantage of our excellent Coffee Shop at Ferryhill Church over the years. It is open every morning (Monday to Saturday) of the year with a break over Christmas. The Coffee Shop provides an excellent space to catch up with friends over a cuppa or to get a bite to eat.
The Coffee Shop is made possible because of teams of volunteers who are on duty once a fortnight. You do not need to be a church member to be involved in one of these teams. If you are interested and would like to find out more about joining one of the teams, please contact Edna Sainsbury on 01224 572477.
