In 2020 Drama Kirk will be performing this play in Hamilton, so it’s a great opportunity to see what is in store! There will also be some fun stalls and fellowship. And don’t miss the Easter quiz, now on sale!
A “Burns Lunch” will be held on Sunday 17 March, following the morning service. The menu will be soup followed by haggis, neeps and tatties then bannocks with cheese, tea or coffee. This will be followed by some entertainment. Tickets at the bargain price of £6.00 will be available from today in the Pillar Hall. Please get them sooner rather than later to let us order the food.
Trip to Dundee
Please remember if you have put your name(s) down to go and find you cannot make it, we need to know no later than 31 March, so that the final cost can be calculated and paid and your choice from the menu made. The cost is looking like £22 including the 3 course meal. The final cost will be intimated after the numbers are finalised on 31 March, after which we will need to charge at least the cost of the bus should there be any further cancellations.
