DIY GROUP

 

The purpose of the group is to allow young people an opportunity to get together and discuss issues that are important to them,get out and about when the weather is fair, and to get involved in the community by raising money for charities of their choice and to generally have some fun together.

 

At the Christmas Fayre in Madderty Hall, the DIY group joined in alongside the church on their cake & candy stall, and sold homemade shortbread and pretty jars of hot chocolate mix.

 

We raised £172, which was divided equally between charities chosen by the young people. These were Cancer Research UK, Parkinson’s UK and MS Research, which the young people felt were relevant to themselves or people close to them.

 

Recently the group have attended the Norrie Miller Walk Light Show in Perth, and also took part in the churches 'Festival of Flowers' last May. The picture on the right shows the arrangement the girls put together and displayed on the day.

We always have food of some kind which is often linked to the activity we are involved in on the evening. All young people of secondary age are warmly invited to come along.

Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality. It typically includes a welcome, a long creative time to explore the biblical theme through getting messy; a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and similar; and a sit-down meal together at tables. 

 

All elements are for, and should include, people of all ages, adults and children. It's all-age. It's fun. It's a church for people at all stages of their faith journey and of any age - a congregation that is as valuable and worthy of investment as any of your other congregations.

 

Here are some pictures from our Easter Messy Church held on Saturday 13th April 2019.

Sunday School

The Sunday School takes place at Madderty and Gask Church Services. The children are present for a short part of the church service.  They then go with their leaders to Sunday School which finishes at the same time as the service.  

All age groups can be catered for. 

 

There is a Creche for under 3's and the Sunday School groups are from 3 years - P7.

 

The picture of the tree below was a Sunday School project, with everyone encouraged to design and colour their angel, and make a donation to Crossreach and a  thank you to our Sunday School teachers from Anna and Katie.
