There were fun things to eat and drink at the Toddlers’ Party held in Annan House on Monday 15th December – and fun that the grown ups could join in.
Santa called in and after making sure all the youngsters had a present he found time to join them in Christmas songs
The choir of Dalry Primary School came along to Palmerston Place to sing during the Lunchtime Carols event on 17th December. This is the third year the church has had lunchtime carols as part of their outreach programme.
The church was set in a table format, with mince pies and refreshments before and after the service.
The party was held on 13th December at the Tom Fleming Centre in Stewart’s Melville College.
Santa came along, bringing presents for all the youngsters.
During the Party there were quizzes, dancing, games and a buffet tea, ending with Christmas songs and carols.
More than 180 gift shoeboxes were brought to the church in response to the Shoebox Appeal. The last of them were added on Sunday November 16.
The shoeboxes found a temporary home in the Palmerston Place library before being taken on November 19 to a waiting van for the first stage of their journey to the children of Belarus.
Doors Open Day on 27 September attracted well over 200 visitors to Palmerston Place Church.
As well as sharing something of the life and work of our congregation visitors were treated to a varied programme of short concerts throughout the day.
Soup, Bread and Cheese were on the menu for a lunch held in the Church Hall on Sunday September 7 in aid of Chogoria Hospital in Kenya with which Palmerston Place has strong links.
We raised the amazing sum of £685 from today’s lunch, and, as much of that was Gift-Aided the true value to Chogoria Hospital is about £836.
