It was with great excitement then that Ruth McCaig was appointed as our Youth & Community Worker in August 2010. Ruth is a qualified RE teacher and is both musical and sporty. Her remit is to oversee all the youth ministry in the church, supporting all that currently goes on and also to find new ways to engage with the local young people.
Children and young people have always been at the heart of Church and we still run many activities for them. Our aim is for the young people learn what it means to be a Christian and to start the lifelong journey of following Christ. We want to best equip the children for this, teaching them the foundations of how to live and walk as a Christian. On a Sunday we have a crèche and Explorers (Sunday School) which meet during the morning service. The last Monday of the month is our Movie Kids group. Every Tuesday night is Cross Sports and on a Wednesday evening CBC Kid's Club meets. Youth Cafe runs on a Friday evening and Distinctive and Football Focus meet every fortnight on a Sunday and Monday evening respectively.
Everyone who works with the children in a leadership role has met the conditions of our Child Protection Policy and have been checked with Disclosure Scotland.
