Coffee mornings to raise funds for various local community organisations take place nearly every Saturday morning in the Kirk Hall (except the first Sunday of each month when they are held in the Social Club) between 10:00 and 12:00. They are very good social events as well as helping to support local groups.
As part of Rothes Kirk's commitment to some of the world's poorest people Fair Trade coffee, tea, sugar and butter are used at all of the coffee mornings held in the Kirk Hall. This way the coffee mornings provide happy social gatherings for the community, raise funds for local organisations and also help to support producers in some of the poorest communities in the world.
ROTHES KIRK HALL HALL KEEPER
After 16 years Colin our volunteer Hall Keeper is standing down for health reasons. We urgently need to appoint a new voluntary Hall Keeper - or more than one person to share the duties. The Hall is extensively used by Church and community. CAN YOU HELP? Would you like to know more about it? Contact Dennis on 831319 or the Minister on 831381. You could be our answer to prayer. It is not essential to be a Church member.
MONDAY MORNING TEAS AND COFFEE
Monday morning teas seem to be more and more successful. The Kirk Hall is one of the busiest places in the village on a Monday morning with friends and strangers and mothers and toddlers all coming in for tea and coffee and scones and pancakes. Every Monday morning between 10:00 and 12:00 a.m
PRIMARY 5 - 7
A new Group for youngsters age Primary 5 - 7 now meets in the Kirk Hall on Monday evenings from 7:00 p.m. There are a range of fun activities while at the same time the youngsters learn about Bible stories and being friends of Jesus. New members are always welcome.
MORAY FOOD BANK
Rothes Kirk continues to support the Moray Food Bank. Items for the foodbank can be placed in the box provided in the Church on Sunday mornings.
Borderline is a charity that grew out of the Caledonain Christian Club in London. Borderline staff network with other agencies to help homeless Scots in London and is supported by the two Church of Scotland Charges in London - Crown Court Church in Covent Garden and St. Columba's Church in Pont Street. Unfortunately Borderline has not been successful in the last two years in obtaining a grant from the Scottish Government. Previously these Grants covered around one-third of the Charity's annual income. Rothes Parish Church held a retiring collections for Borderline and has sent a donation of £278. Our minister was formerly an Elder in Crown Court Church and has first-hand knowledge of the excellent work being done by Borderline.
