Firstly, we hope you are well. This is a little note about how we hope to help each other in this time of anxiety around COVID-19 (coronavirus).
If you are self-isolating, and would like any help (eg with getting shopping or prescriptions) or simply would like to talk to somebody, please get in touch (01620 811193). We have a team of people happy to help.
Equally, if you would like to help our neighbours at this time, please also let me know.
We are working closely with the Community Councils in this regard.
Our services are available on our websites on Sunday morning, for you to follow if you wish.
Sound recordings of the services are available on CD - if you would like to receive one, please get in touch with me or Paul Sales (01620 811260).
All planned events and meetings have been postponed until the situation changes.
Helping more widely
If you do go to the shops, please consider getting an extra item for East Lothian Foodbank, who are struggling at this time to provide for those in need. Collection trolleys can for example be found in Tesco in Haddington.
We hope this is helpful - please do get in touch if you need any help and support.
Update 02.04.2020: We very much hope to be able to offer this Holiday Club, but this will of course depend on the current situation around the coronavirus epidemic. We will accept provisional bookings as planned from 13 April.
We look forward again to exploring these stories and learning about them with the help of Jenny's amazing creativity, Cressida's fantastic story telling, and Margo's wonderful snacks. All leaders are members of our Messy Church team, and PVG checked.
The Holiday Club is for children of primary school age, including those starting P1 after the holidays, and places are limited to twelve children. Registration for the Holiday Club will open on 13 April - a Booking Form can be found here.
We hope to see you there! In the meantime, you can have a look at what we got up to last year.
Due to the current health concerns, we have decided to postpone our Messy Church this weekend. A new date will be arranged as soon as possible. We're very sorry for any disappointment!
Our next Messy Church takes place on Sunday, 15 March 2020, 4-6pm, in the Fletcher Hall in East Saltoun, for children of all ages (please bring an adult, though). This time, we'll explore the story of Abraham and Sarah, through crafts, games, songs and storytelling. There will also be a baby and toddler corner, and, as always, a shared supper for the children.
