Building matters

March 7th, 2011

Following the last church meeting with Revd Leslie Morrison (Synod Finance & Property Officer), elders decided to set up a small group to investigate in detail the practical options identified: adapting and renovating the current building or moving to new premises.

It was agreed that regular church meetings would keep all informed and able to contribute to the plans.

REFURBISHED TOOLS HEADING FOR THE MISSIONS
A local charity has been collecting unwanted tools of all descriptions from many sources in the area with the intent of sending them out to the Missionary areas of the world.
Premises have been obtained in Rosyth and are being organised as a refurbishment centre where volunteers will undertake the processing of these implements to bring them back to workable and safe use. Once completed the, the depot will be open at least one day a week so people can deliver tools they want to donate or leave for refurbishment and cleaning.
A small core group, drawn mainly from Viewfield Baptist Church, are presently working at the centre, but more assistance is needed.  Skilled volunteers with knowledge o f the Trades are urgently sought to help regenerate the equipment donated. Training can also be provided to those who do not have the above expertise.
Schools can also help as there is a scheme organised by TWAM whereby plastic document wallets are filled with education resources, e.g. writing pads, pencils, pencil sharpeners etc. These packets are used, as are knitted items, to pad out the containers being shipped to the Missions.

If you would like to help, you can contact Finlay Robertson, either by telephoning him on 01383722371, or by e-mail on
finlay39@googlemail.com.

Finlay is also happy to come along and speak to your church or organisation.

Commitment for Life

August 9th, 2010

This weekend (7/8 August) was our Commitment for Life weekend.  The garden party at Stan and Ann’s beautiful garden saw the sun shining the hottest it’s been for a while and the freshly baked scones and Hugh’s guitar playing were special treats.

The Sunday service focussed on the experiences of people in Zimbabwe – our partner country – and we had some wonderful carvings from the country to put us in context.

The weekend (with the previous week’s communion offering) raised over £300.  The whole weekend, with last week’s communion offering, raised over £300.  For more information about Commitment for Life and the work done in Zimbabwe go to their homepage on the URC website -

At this spring’s Synod meeting, Dunfermline United Reformed Church was presented with the Child Friendly Church award. This award recognises that the church has a good approach to working with children, having concern for their safety, wanting them to be fully involved in the life of the church and being prepared to offer them fun as well as teaching.
