The fundraising group are organizing a Quiz Night to be held on Thursday, May 2nd and are looking for raffle prizes.  All money made will go towards church funds.  Please see Beth Coote, Christine Ford, Dave Clark or Lynda Reed for more information or to donate. Thank you.


Yes! It’s time to plan for the summer Alvanac. Any articles/ideas/funnies to Kay by Sunday 12th May, please!

Volunteer Opportunities


We have a few opportunities for volunteers to help us reach out over the next few years.

If you have a deep care for others maybe you could see Anne Shearer and help with our Pastoral Care Team.

If you see a need to help our finances but do it with a slant to helping develop friendships then maybe you could join Christine Ford with the Fundraising Group.

Or if you are interested in a one-off outreach to children maybe you could see Catherine Law as she hosts a tent for Children’s Crafts at the Alva Games.

If you contact the minister he can pass your name on to the relevant leader.


The church magazine, The Alvanac, is now available to read online here
