Please note we have a new carpark which is behind the Kirk Stables. There is capacity for quite a few cars. PLEASE make sure the gateway is not blocked by inconsiderate parking though.

Now some notes on the above dates-

If you would like to contribute produce, flowers etc to the Harvest Fayre and or Harvest Thanksgiving, goods may be handed in at the Kirk Café from 10am- 11.30am  Friday 26th.

Help is required to set up the Church for the Festival. Please meet at the Church at 4pm -6pm on the Friday afternoon.

Donations of good quality items (not clothes or books) for the Blue Door sale can be handed in to the Kirk foyer on Friday mornings or by arrangement by contacting Anita on  806221  or Valerie on 806005.  The Blue Door salerooms are down in the Kirk Stables and teas and home bakes are served in the Fellowship room in the Church.

Armistice Sunday service starts in the Kirk at 10.00am then processes to the War Memorial for 11am.

Communion Sunday. The traditional service is at 10.30am. If you are unable to attend that then there is a more intimate communion at 6.30pm which is also very special.

Guild. Please note this organisation is for both ladies and gentlemen and you are all welcome to come along to the meetings in the Fellowship Room.

The HHCOS (Haddo House Choral and Operatic Society) are holding one of their concerts in our Church. Please note that this will be a ticketed event. As there is no longer disabled access into Haddo Chapel and there are four concerts there, it was agreed to sing in Methlick Kirk which does have disabled access, in the hope that more people will enjoy the experience of hearing such a good choir.

The Watch Night Service is very festive with the Kirk being candle lit. Starting at 11pm, there is half an hour of community carol singing then a short service. This is a really good start to Christmas.
