The Alpha Course 2017

After a succesful Alpha Course pilot we are beginning a new Alpha Course on 3rd March 2017. It's open to anyone who wishes to find out a bit more about life and faith whether you have been a church member for a long time or just exploring some ideas of faith. The course is open to everyone.

See the Alpha page under "Get Involved" above for more info. 

Slains Building Vote Result

On Sunday 14th May, after three opportunities to vote regarding folks' preferred options for using the Slains Kirk building, the congregation of Ellon Parish Church voted 120 to 63 for Option 1 (which is that we don't retain the building). There were two "spoiled" papers. 

It is always sad when a decision is made to close a church building. Nevertheless, as a church our mission to the parish as a whole is undiminished. We will strive to find ways to engage with and reach out to the community of Collieston and Slains that will, by the very nature of not having a handy church building at our disposal, need to be creative. We will need to employ new ways of thinking and listening to help bring the love of Jesus to each corner of our parish. As always the Ministry Team is happy to hear from anyone who wishes to discuss any of this. Below you will find the options leaflet which gives some more details regarding option 1, and also a copy of the statement Alastair, the Parish Minister, delivered before the vote result was announced.
