Family Service: 11am – 12.15pm
Sunday mornings at ACC are the main time we gather as a whole community to worship God together, learn together through inspired Bible teaching and share our lives together. The services include times of mainly contemporary praise & worship, a brief slot for the children, intercessory prayers and then about 30 minutes of practical Bible teaching. We welcome anyone to join us for this time to listen to the voice of God, receive some inspiration for our lives and encourage one another as we face the many challenges of modern life. Afterwards we encourage everyone not to rush away but to join us in the cafe area for tea, coffee, biscuits and a chat.
During the latter part of the service there is a Creche, a Sunday School for nursery to P7 age children, and a Bible Class for S1 – S4’s
Breakout: P1-P6, 6.45 – 7.45pm
Breakout kid’s club happens every Tuesday evening during term time. Activities regularly include lots of games, stories, crafts and a whole host of fun.
Whilst the club is going on, parents are welcome to stay and share in a hot drink and cake and chat in our coffee area.
Join us every Tuesday, during term-time, 6:45 – 7:45pm (currently on break, starts again in September).
Games, Stories, Crafts, Quizzes And lots more fun!
(& plenty of tea, coffee, cakes & biscuits for any parents who’d rather stay!)
Youth Club: P7 – S3, 7.45 – 9.30pm
Our Youth Club looks slightly different every week, but the main points are there every week: games, activities, tuck shop, banter. There is a charge of 50p each evening.
Every now and then we throw in the odd curve-ball just to stir things up a bit… This could be anything from football to consoles, from healthy eating to pizza, from a trip out to a big night in.
Prayer is an important part of the life of our church and we seek to meet together regularly to pray. Our prayer meetings often take different forms from silent reflection and meditation to guided prayer and petitioning for our church, our loved ones, our community and our world.
These happen once a month at different members’ homes on a Wednesday evening and also once a month before the Sunday morning service at 10am with coffee served.
Our prayer meetings can take various forms in an attempt to help everyone engage in prayer in a way that is both comfortable and engaging. As a group we are often led to pray for our world, for our city, for our local communities, for each other, seeking God for more of himself, and for the power and presence of his Spirit as we seek to listen to and follow him.
Auldhouse Care & Share, 11.30 – 2pm
“Care and Share” is a drop-in ministry when anyone from the local community can come in for some lunch (courtesy of our local Gregg’s) or, if they need, receive several bags of food from our foodbank (which is open between 12-2pm). Normally we require people to bring a voucher with them to use the foodbank. These can be sourced locally through GHA, the Jobcentre, Schools, Health visitors and from a number of organisations whom we partner with. If someone does not have a voucher they can still come and we will fill one out for them on a first visit.
Care and Share also provides the opportunity for people to make friends, to have a chat about any concerns or struggles, and to find out about other local organisations who may be able to help them with the situations they find themselves in. We also, on occasions, are able to help people with other items such as clothes, toys, fuel cards and some basic household items.
Parents and Toddlers, 10 – 11.30am
Every Thursday during term time there is an informal Parent and Toddlers group that meets in the church. With a large selection of toys for the children to play with and a friendly environment for both parent and child to come into and meet with other parents this group is an exciting place!
There is no need to register, and all we ask is for a £1.50 donation per adult to cover costs of refreshments and snacks for parents and children.
Parent & Toddlers Group meets every Thursday during the school term.
Children enjoy free play and a snack. Great opportunity to meet and chat with other parents of pre-schoolers. Cost is £1.50.
Lighthouse, 9.30am – 12noon
Lighthouse is our café which is open every Friday morning from 9.30 – 12 noon (stops for summer break over July & August, starts again 6th September).
We serve a variety of teas, coffees, hot chocolate and cold drinks to accompany our hard to resist home baking!
The styles and flavours of baking vary from week to week and include, scones, fruit loaves, tray bakes, meringues, biscuits, cookies and a variety of specialist cakes.
We can provide takeaway cups and containers if you don’t have time to sit and chat so why not come along and bring a friend. All we ask in payment is a donation, which will be used to benefit local and international charities!.
