Rubislaw's Children's Church Groups
Further information about any of the organisations listed below may be obtained by contacting the Church Office (1 Beaconsfield Place, tel. 01224-645477.)
Christian Nurture and Education
At the baptism of their children, Christian parents promise 'by prayer and example to bring their children up in the life and worship of the Church'. In the Church we endeavour to help parents do this from their children's earliest years.
From their baptism until their third birthday, children receive a birthday card and Christmas card. Their names are also written on the Cradle Roll, which is on display in the church. Our Cradle Roll Keeper is Isobelle Nicol.
Babies and children under pre-school nursery age are looked after during the service on Sunday mornings. We offer a safe friendly place, well supervised, available from 10.15 am. The Crèche meets in Room 3 of the Centre. Any parents with very young babies who prefer to keep them with them in Church may also use the Church Vestry or main vestibule area where the service can be heard by relay loud speaker.
Rota Organiser: Dr Margaret Denison.
The children are encouraged to sit in the Church with their parents and join in the first 15 minutes of worship before going with their leaders to the Church Centre. After the service, parents are asked to collect their children from the Church Centre.
Sunday Club Team Leaders: Richard Morrison & Moira Morrison.
Meetings of the S1-3 group are held during term time. Leaving the 10:30am service with the Sunday Club children, we meet in the Church Centre and follow a programme intended to nurture and deepen Christian understanding. On occasions, we remain in church for the duration of the service. S1-S3 Leaders: Olaniyi Daramola, Fiona Eost & Jenny McArthur
The Simpsons Plus group is run jointly with our neighbouring parishes. The emphasis is on fun. Games, crafts and a Simpsons video are combined with more serious consideration of Christian issues . Simpsons Plus, for S3 upwards, meets on the last Saturday of each month, 7.30 – 9.15 pm, at Midstocket Church Centre, 35 Midstocket Road. Contact for further information: Andy McCreath on 638010
Young People's Music
A feature of our 10.30 Sunday service for a number of years has been the contribution of a group of young people playing musical instruments leading part of our praise.
Rubislaw Church: Growing together, sharing God's love, building faith, bringing hope.
