Dates for your Diary
Upcoming / Current
Praise Group – Rehearsals usually take place at 6.45pm every Friday in the hall but are currently suspended during the Covid-19 period. We have some singers leading Sunday worship ‘out the front’ but we are still restricted in their number (though total congregation numbers are no longer meaningfully restricted).
The Lossie Singers (Choir) – After our successful visit to Donau Eschingen in Germany in October 2019, rehearsals resumed in early 2020, were then ‘on hold’ for a period but then resumed via Zoom approximately every 2 weeks on Friday evenings from 7.30pm. From September 2021, we resumed in the Hall on Friday evenings at 7.30pm for about an hour. We keep the hall well-ventilated and, though we sing without masks, we maintain social distancing and wear masks when moving about. The Choir is good fun and fellowship and a chance to learn some religious and non-religious songs in a relaxed and entirely non-judgemental atmosphere. The Choir had a very successful Christmas Concert in December 2021. If you are interested in coming along, contact us via the website or the church’s Facebook page. The Choir is having a breack for the month of January 2022.

Tea and Coffee is normally served in the Hall following every morning Service, when we join together for a time of fellowship. (Note: currently still suspended until further notice due to Covid).
Joint Bible Study Group
This normally meets every Wednesday at 7:30pm at the Manse. More details in this short article. All welcome. During Covid times, there is a weekly Wednesday Zoom meeting led by our Minister and attended by folks from both Churches in the linkage. Again, all are welcome. The meetings generally follow the format of a Reflection, followed by a Bible study and then a time of prayer focusing especially on people known to us within our congregations and wider community. This a good time of fellowship, reflection and prayer. If you are interested in attending, please contact us via this website in the first place and our Minister, Geoff, will send you a Zoom link. Weekly Zoom meetings have resumed from September 2021.
