Messy Church – the writing is on the wall…

February 23rd, 2019 · Comments Off on Messy Church – the writing is on the wall…


At Messy Church today, 23rd February 2019, we heard the adventurous stories of Daniel and his friends and enjoyed crafts, singing, storytelling, worship and eating together. This picture shows our graffiti wall inspired by the story of the Great Feast when the words ‘Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin” mysteriously appeared – but Daniel was able to interpret these and so gave a warning to the King that God was not pleased with him.

Messy Church next gathers on Saturday 30th March 2019 and then again on Saturday 27th April 2019 from 10:30am-12:30pm at Helensburgh United Reformed Church on West Princes Street. We then take a break until Saturday 28th September 2019.

Unfortunately the Tour planned for 2019 of the Osiligi Maasai Warriors has been postponed until 2020. This means that the event planned for 30th August 2019 at Helensburgh URC will now not take place. Our apologies for this. Please watch out for news of the tour in 2020 when we hope we can offer a venue.

Christmas Tree Festival Fundraising gift to Enable

January 30th, 2019 · Comments Off on Christmas Tree Festival Fundraising gift to Enable

On Wednesday 30th January a cheque for £1100, raised at our Christmas Tree Festival, was handed over to the local branch of Enable. A similar cheque was passed on already to Oisiligi Charity projects who support the Maasai in Kenya.

Helensburgh United Reformed Church sends sincere thanks to all those who participated in the 2018 Christmas Tree Festival, those who purchased and decorated each of the forty trees on display, those who provided musical entertainment , those who provided refreshments and acted as stewards and especially all those who put donations into the glass jars. With that support the local branch of Enable Scotland and the The Osiligi  Charity Projects (Maasai) will each receive £1,100. Without these efforts this event would not have been such a success.

The Maasai Warriors story telling & dance group associated with Osiligi are touring again in 2019 and plan to perform at Helensburgh URC on 30th August.
