Some people have very generously given us money towards the cost of postage.img_3334

Cuban Visitors

In March 2016 our church welcomed two visitors from our sister church in Caibarien Cuba, Edelberto Valdes, who is the pastor at the Prince of Peace church and one of the Elders there, Mrs Adela Rojer.

As well as joining or congregation in worship and fellowship, our visitors spent two days visiting the EU URC church in Bathgate, and were taken on sightseeing tours including a visit to Cairngorm National Park.

Everyone agreed that the visit was successful and enriching for all concerned, and strengthened our relationship with the church in Cuba.IMG_2890IMG_2780

 

Advent

‘Christmas is coming!’, the Church is glad to sing, and let the advent candles brightly burn in a ring.

North Link meeting

We had a very productive day today sharing thoughts and ideas from around the North Link. Some of the questions we looked at were:
If my local URC did not exist in 5 years time, what would be missing in my life?
What are the core activities which my local congregation runs/does?
What does your local community uniquely get from the work of your local URC congregation?
What would you be prepared to change to achieve closer links with your community?
