All Age Family Service at BCNC  -  Sunday 31st March 2019

 

    As it was 'Mothering Sunday' daffodils were handed out during the service by the young folk in the congregation. The special prayer was written and read by Hannah one of our BCNC youngsters.     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                     BCNC GOES 'DIGITAL' on Sunday 24th March 2019

  Morning Worship on Sunday 24th March 2019 will be the first opportunity to try out our new 'Digital Sound Desk' which was purchased recently. Our 'Sound Guy' at BCNC Graham Smith has had hours of fun trying to get to grips with it. Hopefully this will greatly improve the sound quality especially for those in the congregation who have hearing difficulties. We would like to thank Graham for all his time and expertise in setting it up. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   Big 'thank you' to everyone who came along to our Stated Annual Meeting on Tue 19th March 2019. The evening started of with our 'Fellowship Meal' in the Guthrie Hall which as usual was superb. We then moved through to the church where we enjoyed a time of worship lead by our Praise Band. Then it was onto the business side of the evening which included remembering those who had passed away since we last meet in 2018. A special mention must go to those who gave of their time and talents to make the evening such a success.

   Local police officers popped into BCNC Guild Fundraiser on Wednesday afternoon (17th October) to collect all the knitted 'Trauma Teddies' after a nationwide appeal. The idea is for the police to hand them out to children who have been caught up in a distressing / frightening situation. Well done to everyone who took up the challenge to help this very worthy cause.

Photo's from our Easter Sunday Services (1st April 2018) @ BCNC

 

                   

 

Two very well attended Easter Sunday Services at BCNC. In the morning we welcomed the Rev Arthur Christie who led the All Age family Service where the congregation decorated the cross with colourful flowers. Our very own talented Praise Band led our worship with the youngsters doing their 'Easter Egg Hunt' in church. Arthur then invited them to wrap up Session Clerk Andy Beattie in linen cloth from head to toe (it was heard by some to leave him like that !) Lol  In the evening the Rev Elizabeth Kenny led our Easter Praise Service with lots of enthusiastic singing led by the band once again. We Shared Holy Communion together before singing one final song. We then went through to the Guthrie Hall doing the 'Conga' (another surprise up Elizabeth's sleeve) and enjoyed some 'Easter Goodies' with tea / coffee.
