Family & Young People Activities

An important part of our church family has been hit badly by all that has happened in the last two years. Guidelines have stopped us from being able to deliver any Sunday activities for our children!

Family Zoom Quiz

We’re holding Family Zoom Quiz on Sunday 6th February at 3pm, to involve children and families in our church life. Why not bring your children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces or godchildren along?

Please email administrator@logies.org if you would like the Zoom access information.

Children and young people’s work meeting

We also want to look at how we can best begin to deliver work with children and young people as part of our congregational worship. Sunday morning doesn’t always fit with family life, sporting activities and other leisure pursuits so we’d like to hear what would work best for you and your children.

We’re holding a Zoom meeting on Sunday 30th January at 3pm to gather thoughts and ideas. If you are a parent, grandparent or carer, or if you have been part of our children’s work in the past, please come along.

If you are interested and know you cannot make the meeting, please let Grant know and we will try to update you and find ways to hear your thoughts.

We also aim to consult the children and young people about what they feel would be best for them.

Please email administrator@logies.org if you would like the Zoom access information.

Christmas 2021

** UPDATED Thursday 16th December **

Rev Grant Maclaughlan writes: “We have had to learn to keep our distance as we have continued to live with Covid this year. We are discouraged from getting too close to other people- no handshakes, no hugs. At Christmas, as we remember the birth of Jesus, we celebrate that he was also known as ‘Immanuel’- God with us.

This Christmas may we know that God is with us and experience the love, hope, joy and peace that comes through His presence.”
