Children and Youth News
Another year at Kids Kirk concluded in June with our Family Fun Day. It was good to see some of you there. The families particularly enjoy spending time in fellowship with the church congregation. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our team of helpers – from setting up the hall, participating in the sessions, making feasts and leading the Sunday service. We also enjoyed a fun Treasure Hunt for the young people in Youth Kirk on the Sunday. It was a beautiful night to explore our little community. The young people had to work out an anagram – Detectives – this was a little clue to our new session when they will become Daring Detectives.
For a week in July, our hall was transformed into the Egypt, where we explored the life of Joseph for our Pyramid Rock Holiday Club. Special thanks to George Thomson who made us a 4ft pyramid, this was such a great resource it even featured at Tranent’s Holiday Club. Over the week we had 27 children.
Our favourite slot each day was Captain Ketchup and her news for the day, she even appeared in Church at the closing service! Normally August is a time to relax, but this year we held a special event for our P7-S3 young people at Pyramid Rock Artefacts on Sunday 27th August, they explored Joseph and his feelings.
On 16th September we continue our travels in Egypt as we travel on Rocky Road as Moses grows from a baby to an old man. Each Sunday following Kids Kirk, the worship team will continue the travels at 10.15am, please come along and join us. We the set up the Detective Agency for Daring Detectives on Sunday 17th September 6-7.30pm.

September was the start of our 4th year at Kids Kirk. We began our travels with the apostle Paul, we started our journey in Jerusalem. Each child had their passport stamped at the Take Control Station. We are delighted to have Sinead Robertson and Sophie King as our young helpers this year. The girls show great support to the Kids Kirk children and guiding our new P1's.
