The Big Top Holiday Bible Club will run from 14th to 18th August for 5 - 11 years in the Church Hall.  Contact Rhys for pre-registration forms and more information or search "The Big Top Kirkcudbright Holiday Bible Club" on Facebook for the event. Volunteers needed.


Strawberry Cream Teas are being served at the Children's Festival in the Church entrance during the Festival from 12.30pm to 4.00pm.  Helpers needed please. Contact Irene Robertson.


As many of you will know the Jazz Festival is to be held again this year in June. In the past it has been a very good fund raising event for the Parish.  If you do some baking, make soup, or even help with the serving of food I would be very pleased to hear from you.

I am sure you are all aware of the boards outside the church telling passers by of the church history. We were required to do this to complete the grant we received from Historic Scotland Fund for our Church restoration.

We have only one thing left to. We have to open the church to the public during the summer months for two days a week and we have 1000 information leaflets already printed to hand out to visitors. The two days will be Wednesday and Thursday, there will be three sessions a day, being 10 am-12 noon, 12 noon to 2pm and 2pm to 4pm.

THIS IS WITHOUT DOUBT A PLEA FROM YOUR SESSION CLERK for members of the congregation to show off our church. How can you help? Talk to me at church, stop me in the street or call me.

Let’s make people visiting our church feel welcome and experience a congregation delighted to SHOW OFF not only our building but also ourselves.

Waiting in anticipation for your response.

The Wednesday Club finished for the summer a few weeks ago now and, as far as I am aware, no-one has offered to help ensure that the Wednesday Club will be able to open again in October.

The opportunity to get out for an afternoon of fellowship and entertainment is vitally important to many people. Can you help?

Sheila and Campbell gave up most Wednesday afternoons in the winter to run the club, and for their dedication we are immensely grateful. I think it will  be possible to run the club with a team of willing, dedicated volunteers. I therefore hope to be able to get together a team of people who will be willing to help on a rota basis to ensure that the club continues and runs smoothly. No-one will be expected to give more time than they are able, no-one will be expected to do anything that they feel incapable of doing, no-one will be taken for granted, and absolutely everyone, and all that they do, will be valued.

So, if you can welcome people, we need you; if you can serve tea, we need you; if you can chat to folk, we need you; if you can help prepare the room, we need you; if you can bake cakes or biscuits, we need you. We need as many of you as possible to offer your time, between 1.30pm and 3.30 pm occasionally on a Wednesday. The regularity of your duty will depend on the numbers who volunteer, so chat to me in the street, at church or anywhere else you may see me. Volunteering can be great fun as well as extremely rewarding, so do please get in touch. I would hate to see the hard work of Ian Higgins, Jim Carson, Sheila, Campbell and their supporting cast being lost because we were not able to field a reliable team of volunteers to help.

I hope, with the help and advice of Sheila and Campbell, to be able to put together a programme for the winter. Unless we get enough volunteers the putting together of a programme will be pointless. So, DON’T DELAY: APPLY TODAY, and let us know how you might be able to help.
