CHURCH NEWS MARCH 2019

Hoping you have had the opportunity of meeting our new Minister, Rev Stan Kennon, in church or around the village. Look around the ‘Crier’ for a brief introduction to Stan and his family!

 It was great to see so many gathered in the Williamson hall and at the war memorial on Remembrance Sunday to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War Armistice. The Christmas eve service was just as lovely in a different way.

We are very much enjoying being back in the newly plastered and painted church with improved lighting and floor coverings. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to do all the organising, moving and cleaning during the whole process. Thanks also for the use of the Williamson hall and the helpfulness of its committee in making us as comfortable as possible.


We warmly invite you to come to any of the services or activities listed below.


Morning worship

For 2019 the service in Abernethy will generally be at 11am and in Glenfarg at 9.30 am except for the last Sunday of alternate months when there is a united service in Glenfarg at 11am. There will be no service in Abernethy when the United Service is in Glenfarg.


United services:  are at 11 am in Abernethy on April 28th and June 30th and  at 11am in Glenfarg on March 24th and May 26th.

Drinks and refreshments are served afterwards. Any one wishing transport to Glenfarg may contact Kathleen Baird on 01738 475 086


Children’s Sunday Club meets in school term time during the morning services at each location. The young people can enjoy a time of Bible stories, fun, games, crafts and songs.

Holy Communion: is to be on Sunday 28 April in Abernethy


Church ‘Open Doors’: meets fortnightly on Tuesdays from 12th March onwards at 2.30 - 4pm – a time for refreshments and chat for all in the adjacent church hall. If you want to spend some quiet time or have a ‘look around’ the church as well,  you are invited!


Village ‘Welcome’ packs

These packs contain useful telephone numbers and information, about activities in Abernethy.  The plastic folders may be picked up from the church vestibules. If you want to welcome someone new moving in to your street, why not collect a pack and add something to it – perhaps a packet of Abernethy biscuits or some flowers! Leaflets are also in the museum and Berryfields tearoom. The information will be updated regularly but if you are aware of any errors in the current version, please let Celia King know on Tel: 851 010.
