Christmas Post: Lockdown edition
I am delighted to announce that “BB Christmas Post: Lockdown Edition” will be happening this year. This will give us a chance to support the local community during this difficult time.
This year there will be no face to face collection of cards, instead they should be put in our new post box which will be located in Morrison’s entrance foyer (27th Nov – 6th Dec) or a box in your church (29th Nov or 6th Dec) along with deliver fee (suggested 25p per card).
Largs cards only please.
Cards will be sorted and passed on to our team of posties who will deliver up to and including Wednesday 23rd December.
If you have any issues in posting your cards a collection can be arranged by contacting the Captain on 07867958022.

Regular Church Events & Concerts 2020
In line with the Church of Scotland's advice, all the advertised events above have been cancelled until the current situation changes.
The Church is fortunate to have an excellent "Father Willis" organ built in 1892 which the committee for the Listing of Historic Organs gives it a Grade 1 listing - "organs are of exceptional interest". It is considered to be one of the finest examples of his work in Scotland.
