OUTREACH LUNCH

Once a month Senior Citizens’ Lunches are served in the National Christian Outreach Centre in Riggs Road.  About 100 attend on Tuesdays and 150 attend Wednesdays.  Many local people attend these events and transport is provided for those who need help.  Buses transport Senior Citizens from Kinross, Dunkeld, Dundee, Leslie, Thornton and Newburgh

FELLOWSHIP HOUR

On Wednesday afternoons from 2 – 3.30pm Senior Citizens gather together for a Fellowship Hour where they enjoy a short Bible study sharing the love of God accompanied by a time of singing.  Tea/ coffee, cakes and scones are served  at the end of the meeting when they can relax and chat and encourage one another

Every Sunday afternoon from 2.30 – 3.15pm services are held in local nursing homes.  The Senior Citizens’ Team visit a total of six nursing homes on a regular basis each month.  Similar services also take place in three sheltered housing units throughout the month.  This is followed by tea/coffee and a time of fellowship
