Kirk Session Teams

Children, Youth and Families Team

The members of this Team are drawn from both the Eldership and the congregation and our wide remit is to oversee the work with our young people and their families.  Those in the group either are active participants in leading some of the children or young people’s work or are interested in the Christian education of those youngsters and their families.

 

We oversee Kidsteam (pre-school to Primary 7) all youth groups (Secondary age),  Messy Church and Holiday Club.  We work closely with Michelle Livingstone,  our Youth Worker, and support the projects she leads in church, school, and the community.   In addition, we support the links we have with LOGOS e.g  in our Friday Night Youth Club (FNYC) and Sunday Night youth group.  We also ensure that Safeguarding guidelines are followed and that volunteers meet the CoS Guidelines regarding PVG certification.

Mission Team

We are a team of six proactive individuals, supported by many more, all keen to promote the Christian message to the local community and beyond. We have many initiatives on the go, every one of which is an outreach beyond the church’s walls. 'Acts of Random Kindness' including angels and stars, made and given with love by our church members, were available throughout the town;  an 'Easter Trail' with giveaway Easter eggs for youngsters on Easter Sunday;  a personal Christmas card delivered to all homes in the community; the Auchterarder Community Garden and, most recently, we introduced 'TryPraying' to the town which gave away a booklet encouraging people to pray.   As restrictions continue to ease, we are planning and very much look forward to, holding community events at which all will be very welcome

 

All suggestions to help in our Mission will be very welcome.

Finance Team

COVID Update: We are all aware that handling coins and banknotes has been one of the COVID disappearing items. We are not being allowed to uplift the offering on Sundays using the red collection bags, therefore we have reverted to using the Plate at the rear of the Church, for members leaving their WFO (Weekly Freewill Oand gift aid envelopes, cash and Tearfund pennies. If you are happy to contribute your offering, monthly, into the Church bank account you just need to complete a bank Standing Order form and send it to your bank. You can also set up standing orders on-line through your own bank account. If you pay UK income tax on pay, pension or investments please use a Gift Aid Declaration form which then allows the Church to collect from the Government the income tax back (at no additional cost to you). If you require a APC Standing Order form and/or a Gift Aid form please contact John Macdonald johnmacdonald2403@gmail.com or click on the links at the end of this article. 

 

The finance group would like to record our grateful thanks to all members who already give their offering and donations through the banking system. We are fortunate that some members also contribute to the youth projects, youth worker, food bank, music fund and donate their loose change to Tearfund. If you wish to have additional information on these items, or the weekly free will envelopes please speak to Vicky Anderson, Murdo Macmillan, John MacDonald  or Kenny McKay.
