Picnic In The Park Generation 19
Fresh Aqua Summit 2

Saturday the 7th of September 10am - 1pm, come to Kings Park with a blanket and a picnic. Invite a family member, a neighbour or a friend who doesnt come to church and introduce
them to the wider church family for some food, fun and fellowship.
This is an outreach event as part of Generation 19 where we are aiming to reach out to those connected with the church who we might not all know, but also to the wider community of Stirling.
We will have a bouncey castle, facepainting and some games.
Be sure to come along and enjoy this event, it is for everyone of all ages and backgrounds.

Ordination of new deacon
On Sunday the 23rd of June, Allan Macleod was ordained as deacon in our congregation. We are so excited to have him as part of our leadership team and the skills and wisdom he brings. We are also thankful for Mairi, his daughter who has been coming along to church with him and was with him on Sunday to support him as he was ordained. 
Please continue to pray for Allan, Mairi and the family as Allan takes on this new role, but also for the rest of our leadership team : Iain, James, Kenneth, Clive and Paul.
Pray for wisdom and Gods guidance, for unity and fellowship as they continue to lead the church in the direction God wants us to go.

International Justice Mission UK
On Sunday the 23rd of June at The Well, we had Andrew Bevan  from International Justice Mission UK come and preach to us on Amos and tell us more about the work of IJM.
It was an eye opening, challenging talk on slavery today in the 21st Century. He preached from Amos 5 v19-25 :
" I hate and despise your religious festivals; your assemblies are a stench to me. Even though you bring me burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Though you bring choice fellowship offerings, I will have no regard for them. Away with the noise of your songs! I will not listen to the music of your harps. But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!"
He challenged us - What are we as a church doing about social injustices in our own towns, country and world? What are we choosing to ignore? does our worship refelct Gods justice?

Baptism of Matthew

Matthew, aged 11, came to faith recently and wanted a baptism of full immersion. Cornton Baptist church kindly gave us the use of their baptismal pool and on Satrurday night a group of us met to support Matthew on his journey of faith. Iain preached from Acts 8 on Philip and the Eunuch. It was a lovely evening giving praise to God and celebrating Matthew.
