Adult Christian Education

  • In 2014 the Kirk Session held a very successful spiritual retreat day. The day was both fruitful and popular, and many elders are interested in developing such opportunities for the Session and the congregation. After the retreat there was a series of Alpha style courses, one for Kirk Session members and two for the Congregation and wider community.
  • For some years we have provided two ma­jor programmes at Lent and in September. The Lent Study Programme is led by members of the congregation and is based on a variety of different published or other materials. In 2017 we ran a series based on a discussion of Rowan Williams’ “Meeting God in Mark“; attendance was over 20 on each of the four evenings.
  • Sunday evening talks in September are organised in partnership with Morningside Parish Church. The evenings start with refreshments and an opportunity for fellowship. In 2016 the series was on “Chaplaincy”. This autumn it will be on “The Joys and Challenges of Our Faith”, with contributions on Roman Catholicism, Judaism, Buddhism and Islam. These series are always popular, with around 60 attending from the combined congregations.
  • Other opportunities for Christian fellowship and education have centred on House Groups, but only one group, with a small but loyal membership, is currently active.
  • A Library is provided on a regular basis at coffee time after the service, and book reviews by members of the congregation included in Connections.
  • A Bookstall was run for 16 years, but has recently drawn to a close.
