Our vision

We are a friendly, passionate, forward-looking congregation who feel God calling us to strengthen our outreach to the families in our area through increasing the range of activities and support the church currently offers. 

We have seen that there is a growing need to support and listen to children and their parents in our local area, and we have developed good connections to do so.   We feel called to do more to help these families to acquire the confidence, skills, resources, faith, point of contact and resilience to enhance their lives.

Ultimately, we have a vision of supporting and drawing families in the area into our fellowship, to become part of our wider church family of care. We would, therefore, like to employ a part-time Children and Families worker to strengthen our current activities and develop fresh approaches.

There is an Occupational Requirement for the holder of this post to be a Christian. The post holder will be required to be a member of the Disclosure Scotland PVG Scheme. The post is subject to the satisfactory completion of a 6 month probationary period.
