The Christmas Eve Service at Dalmilling was a wee bit different this year - in fact it was a "Messy Christmas Eve Service" and the children who attended all used their artistic talents to create their very own Christmas Cards. There were 12 marvellous cards made which were laid out on the steps of the chancel. Don't they look great? Well done everyone!
There were 20 very excited children at the Teddy Bear Toddlers Christmas party, and off course a special visitor!!
Church members and guests were able to enjoy a wonderful evening of festive music and song provided for us by Ayr Salvation Army Brass Band under the inimitable leadership of Bobby Irvine.
The band was in superb form and really captured the spirit of the occasion with their programme of Christmas Carols and festive favourites.
Man of many talents, Bobby Irvine, treated us all to a number of marvellous solos, each with his own twist and which were a joy to hear. Bobby is just superb!
Andrew McKay had everyone laughing with four different seasonal poems ranging from the real story behind the Twelve Days of Christmas to the School Nativity Play Rehersal.
M.C, tom Raffell did a marvellous job introducing the programme with his usual brand of wit and polish!
It was a marvellous night and we are grateful to all the artists for giving up their valuable time to entertain us and help us enjoy the spirit of Christmas.
Ian Fulton most certainly gave service with a smile as he served a portion of his delicious Soup at our recent 'Soup and a Chat' venture in Dalmilling Church which has been running each Tuesday since the beginning of November and finishes on 8th. December.
It is hoped that we will be able to continue in the new year, after a festive break.
Rev. Ken Yorke makes a farewell presentation to Community Workers, Trish Archibald and Fab Moyo, who are both moving on to pastures new. We wish Trish continued good health and every success to Fab, who is swapping the searing heat of Dalmilling to take up a new job in Nairobi.
