04 March 2018REVIVE residential at Comrie
The Revive Youth Project recently took part in a 24-hour residential at Comrie Croft, alongside other churches partnered with the YMCA. Overall, 5 churches were represented and just under 30 young people took part.
This residential was made possible thanks to Youth Scotland, our funders, who supported us to explore the theme of sectarianism and what that means to us today. Our communities' young people focused on ageism and safe spaces. Feedback from the work put in so far has been overall positive, with one mentioning:
"I never really thought about this stuff till now. Glad I have, though, as I've learnt new things from it..."
Revive will look to continue exploring the overall theme of sectarianism even after this specific project comes to an end.
To find out more about Revive, just get in touch with our youth worker at email@example.com or on 07702307071.

Each year the youth organisations nominate someone they think is deserving of the Young Achievers Quaich to the Kirk Session for consideration.
This years winner was Jacob Juggins who was nominated by Boys Brigade Captain John Brown.

25 January 2018Rev. Bob Sloan - Retirement.
When Craigie & Moncreiffe fell into vacancy we were delighted that Bob Sloan agreed to postpone his retirement and to act as our Interim Moderator and Locum Minister. For the last 18 months he has guided and supported our Kirk Session and congregation as well as leading our worship in both churches.
When Bob intimated that he felt the time had come to stand down we fully understood his reasons for doing so but we knew we would miss his caring, relaxed and approachable style.
Bob is seen with his wife Christine and Session Clerk Cecilia Higgins accepting a gift from the congregation to thank him for his service and to wish him a long and happy retirement. We hope we will see Bob and Christine in Craigie & Moncreiffe Church in the not too distant future.
