Latest News of Carriden

As you know, Carriden & Blackness Church was scheduled for dissolution toward the end of November and the Presbytery of Forth Valley and Clydesdale had agreed to that date in principle. However, Presbytery have now stated that the November date may not be possible as the Mission Plan Action Group in Edinburgh have not given their approval to this. As a Kirk Session we are unable to comply with this open-ended ongoing situation.

Consequently, the Kirk Session of Carriden Parish Church has determined that due to a lack of volunteer resources the final services they will organize at Carriden and Blackness churches will be Communion services, held at both churches on Sunday 26th November.

Further to that the Kirk Session of Carriden and Blackness will stand down on November 30th. The course of action, including the provision of services and pastoral care, which may be taken in relation to Carriden and Blackness beyond that date, will be a decision for the Presbytery of Forth Valley and Clydesdale.

We cannot at this point say what actions they may, or may not, decide to take. Members are requested to review any standing orders they may have in place for making their regular offerings prior to the November 30th date. Service on Sunday, 26th November As this will be the last service which the Kirk Session organises, it was agreed that: • The Sacrament of Holy Communion will be celebrated during the service. Wine will be provided but, please, bring your own bread. • A cup of tea/coffee + scones will be served at the end of the service. Please stay and enjoy the fellowship. If you need a lift home, this can be arranged. • There will be a Session Meeting after the tea/coffee is served
