[singlepic id=192]We had our first venture into Messy Church on Saturday the 21st of September. Our hall was all set up with different activities on a harvest theme, with plenty of willing helpers on hand to make sure everyone had some messy fun. We were delighted then when people started to arrive and got in about the crafts and activities.
This was a modest start to our Messy Church adventure, but an encouraging one. And we’ve already started planning our next one, so look out for Messy Advent a little later in the year.
Don’t forget to check out some photos of the morning’s fun.
Maybe it wasn’t the very best of the weather, but it was dry enough to attract a good turnout of members and friends to the Oathlaw Tannadice Jubilee Fete. The home baking disappeared pretty quickly but there were cream teas, burgers, pancakes, and many other goodies available.
Entertainment, apart from the Scouts’ games and the like, came in the form of Brechin Silver Band, who played most excellently in the church.
Then it was time for the duck race, and the burn was suddenly awash with a flotilla of yellow ducks and a few able duck wranglers to make sure they made it to the finish.
There were also plenty of prizes to be won, and there were a few groans when it was announced that the minister had the correct guess for the mystery whisky.
Check out the slideshow above, or the photo gallery from the afternoon.
The amount raised for church funds will be announced as soon as it’s available.

Saturday the 31st March saw Oathlaw Tannadice host its Easter Fayre. It was a beautiful day and great fun was had at the fayre, with plenty of face-painting, egg painting and lots of sweeties to be won. Over £300 was raised for church funds and we are very appreciative of all who came along to support the event and to help out.
Check out the photo album.
At the Tannadice Easter Fayre, on the 31st of March, we’ll be having a competition to find the best painted Easter Egg. If you are under 12, bring along your painted egg and see if yours is the best on the day.
Kirriemuir: St. Andrew’s and Oathlaw Tannadice churches are hosting a number of services over the Easter period, and we would be very pleased to welcome you to any or all of them.
On Thursday the 5th of April, there will be a Maundy Thursday service, at 7pm, in Tannadice church. This service begins with some hymns and readings, before everyone sits down to a simple supper which moves into an informal communion.
On Good Friday, the 6th of April, Kirriemuir: St. Andrew’s will be hosting a Tenebrae service. Tenebrae is Latin for ‘shadows’ or ‘darkness’ and this, more sombre, service takes place in a dimmed, candlelit church as we reflect on the momentous events of Jesus’ crucifixion and burial.
Then on Sunday the 8th, you are welcome to join us at either Oathlaw Tannadice at 9.45, or Kirriemuir: St. Andrew’s at 11.15, as we celebrate the risen Christ on Easter morning. Both of these service will be family-friendly as there will be no Sunday Schools, the leaders taking a well-deserved break.
