On our gift day, there is an opportunity for you to contribute to the costs of employing our youth worker.
You can do this in 3 ways. You could make a donation on the day by cash or cheque, or you could set up a monthly standing order which could start straightaway or at a later date. If you wish to make a donation by cash or cheque but now isn’t the right time for you to be doing this, you could make a pledge that you will donate a particular sum during the next year.
A form is available in church or can be printed for completion but people will be available on the gift day to receive donations, help with Standing Order mandates and Pledges and encourage all tax payers to claim Gift Aid which adds 25% to the value of your donation.
Come and join us for a picnic at Troon beach, meeting at Troon Portland church hall on the corner of South Beach and St Meddans St (enter by the side door entrance facing South Beach).

Our Maundy Thursday reflective service is a ‘tenebrae’ service (from the Latin for ‘shadows’).
The purpose of the service is to recreate the betrayal, abandonment, and agony of the events of Holy Week, and it is left unfinished, because the story isn’t over until Easter Day.
This is done through Bible readings, reflections and hymns with the lights put out gradually throughout the service in expectation of the new light of Easter Day.
