Although we are unable to gather for worship in the church, we are still Church.
We are providing resources on this website to help you remain part of the community at prayer, in communion with our sisters & brothers in Stirling and around the world.
Bishop Ian's Address to Synod

Mothers Union Forth Valley Branch
We are a friendly group of twenty three ladies, now often joined by some gentlemen, if a monthly meeting is of interest to them.
As well as having regular meetings we work in the community:
a. to knit baby matinee jackets for the Larbert Hospital Neonatal Unit
b. to collect knickers, handbags, bath towels, toiletries and flip-flops for those in need.
Helen Kemp and Mary Kenyon would be very pleased to hear from you if you feel you could help. Please don't hesitate to join us if you are free and interested in a meeting. You don't have to be a member and you would be very welcome. It's more about fellowship and helping people.

HT Tots Cafe
More volunteers are needed for our ever-popular HT Tots Cafe on a Monday morning. To help is not onerous: we are looking for 2-3 people who would be willing to perhaps help out once a month (ca. 9.30 - 12 all in all), put out toys (and perhaps tables and chairs) but mainly make coffee, toast bagels and have a good time!
Could you help with this or know of someone who would enjoy volunteering in that way? Please contact us if you are interested.
