Lots going on!

This has been a very busy month.  IMPACT world tours, a weekend away and another Messy church would be a few of the highlights.  We have also has some work completed on our roof and gutters at Priory Lane, kind of important with the weather in the last week.
Forty of us spent a great weekend at the Windmill Centre in Arbroath.  We managed a good balance of activities and time to hang out.  We freaked a few out with Chinese lanterns, and Windmill may well write a new clause in their regulations, but they were beautiful to watch.  A few crazy games led to whole lot of laughter and a few wonderful pictures.  Crafts, walks, games, cake and fruit and fruit and cake!  
We did a lot of thinking and praying through Isaiah 55, a fantastic chapter of encouragement.  "You shall go out with joy and be led forth in peace." Our circumstances may tell us one thing but our heavenly father tells us clearly we have joy and peace in him.

Courage and Mercy's blog!

Have you met Mercy's friend Courage? He is a stuffed chicken who belongs to the children of Athens Link Fellowship. He came over with the group who visited us in June and we saw some great demonstrations of his fantastic flying ability! This picture of the two pals together was taken during an outing to Anstruther.


Courage and Mercy now have their own blog which they hope will help them and the children of both Link Fellowships to keep in touch. They both really enjoyed the time they spent together recently when Iain and Norma took Mercy on their trip to Athens, and Courage has written all about it on their blog and also posted some great photos. Why not have a look? Here is the link: Courage and Mercy would be especially pleased if they knew the children had seen it!

Team Xstreme

"God Rocks!" was a huge theme of the Team Xstreme show at the Alhambra to around 900 noisy recipients.  This team were blowing up hot water bottles, and we do mean blowing up, smashing bricks, bending steel bars........... and sharing how their lives had been radically impacted by their Christian faiths.  For many this may have been the first time they really heard the message of how much God loves them and how he wants their lives to rock!
In the coming weeks we are praying that many will find a place in all the different activities going on in Dunfermline Churches and be encouraged to see how God will impact their lives!!  We've got our Sunday service, Messy Church, Alpha Expresso and a good few more things going on just now.

Impact World Tour

Impact World Tour is a ministry of Youth with a Mission and provides opportunity and focus for local churches. God’s people have opportunity to come together and seek the Lord for the welfare of their community and the salvation of their family and friends. It provides an effective and relevant means for the local church to express Christ’s message. Using international performing arts, sporting and musical groups in campaign style evangelism, Impact World Tour provides a focal point for evangelism in regions throughout the world.

After months of planning and preparation, Impact World Tour is coming to Dunfermline THIS WEEK! The main events will be held in Alhambra Theatre, Dunfermline, on Thursday 10th and Friday 11th November. These events are FREE - this is a great opportunity to take someone you know who is not a Christian to see the gospel presented in an amazing way, unlike anything you've seen before.

Thursday, 10th November, 7.30 pm  Team Xtreme International

Team Xtreme is a group of world class athletes, conditioning experts and power lifters with a concern for today's young generations.  Team Xtreme uses their tremendous physical size and natural abilities in sports to talk straight with youth and many who would normally never attend a Christian gathering. They stand up against the stream of voices selling destructive life-styles, and encourage to live honestly and morally.
 Friday 11th November, 7.30 pm Team GX International
Using 'blades, boards, bikes and beat' GX International present the Gospel in a fast and fluid way unlike anything you've ever seen. Speaking right to the issues that face the young generations, they offer solid answers to the tough questions of life.

Some of the team members will also be going into several of our local schools during the week, including:
  • Pitreavie Primary School
  • Dunfermline High School
  • Queen Anne High School
  • Buckhaven High School
  • McLean Primary School
Please pray for Impact World Tour this week!
  • Pray for the events on Thursday and Friday, that the Alhambra will be full with young and old alike and that many will respond to the message of God's love and their need for salvation.
  • Pray too for the teams going into the schools and for the children and young people who will hear the gospel clearly presented by the teams.
  • The Impact World Tour committee has put a tremendous amount of work into planning and organising this week's events so please pray that everything goes according to plan.
  • Pray too that all financial needs of the week will be met in full.

£1500 of roof work costs


£1500 annonymous cheque for building fund


HUGE answer to prayer.

God is good!!


Check this out. This is the link to the song that Abby was sharing in Sunday. Aaron Keyes


Verse 1
Though a thousand may fall at my side
Though the enemy war against me
I will not fear the terror by night

I will hide in the shadow of Your wings

I will dwell in the shelter of the most high God

I will rest in the beauty of Your presence
Your faithfulness is a shield and my great reward

I will not be afraid, I will trust in the Lord

 Verse 2
You have set me securely on high

You've delivered me out of darkness
And when evil surrounds my life

You've commanded Your angels to guard me

No weapon formed against me will prosper

No weapon formed against me will prosper
No weapon formed against me will prosper

Says the Lord
