Iíd like to wish you all a very happy
and peaceful New Year from the Baptist Church, speaking of which, we are looking
forward to a New Year in our fellowship where we can be busy with Godís work. We
can look forward to many things in the coming year as we were richly blessed in
the year past.
It has been particularly nice to enjoy fellowship
with Maybole Parish Church, especially during the Christmas period, with shared
services at the childrenís Nativity Service, the candle lit evening service and
also on Christmas Morning. Our kids club has now resumed after the Christmas
break (Wed. 6.30pm) and we are praying that we might have a good number of boys
and girls coming to this, ages from around 7 years to around 12 years old. I
would like to stress also that our Womenís Fellowship, who meet on a Monday
evening at 7.30pm would welcome any ladies to come along and see what goes on,
the women have various people speaking each week on a variety of subjects, Iím
sure if you havenít been before, then you might be pleasantly surprised.
We are hoping to have a monthly-shared service
with Maybole Parish Church, this will be a fairly informal affair with a fair
bit of music, please come along as you will be made most welcome. We are very
encouraged by the church cafť (Fri. 11.30am till 1.30pm) at the moment, as we
are extremely busy, which is great, there are around 20 young lads from Carrick
Academy coming every Friday now, along with our regular customers, which is
really good, and the good thing is, when in this day and age some people tend to
think younger people are sometimes not very mannerly, these boys are extremely
pleasant and very mannerly, itís a pleasure to serve them. Once again itís
good to have this opportunity to let you know what is going on in our church,
and also what will be happening in the near future. I hope that you might come
along to something that is happening in the church, again it doesnít matter
whether you have never set foot in this or any other church, you will be made
very welcome. Below are the times of our services and other things that
take place in the church, again you are welcome to come along to any, or all of

with Communion in the morning service each week.
