Every household in the area will be receiving an invite over the next week or so to our planned series of Gospel Meetings to be held in a marquee at the Milton just off Park Street in Crosshill. You will be able to get directions from the map below. If you can only see a red marker just click on the minus sign in the bottom left hand corner until you get a useful view!
The meetings are planned to start at 8pm each night from Sunday through to Thursday for three weeks starting Sunday 14th August. The meeting will last for forty-five minutes, there’s no collection taken and you don’t need to dress up to come! We really hope that the community will take up this opportunity and come along to hear about God’s way of salvation.
For the first time ever, the Gospel Hall took a stand at the Benarty Gala Day. Many thanks to all who dropped by for a chat. Our John 3.16 tote bags certainly seemed to be popular – there were around 800 given out over the course of the afternoon and they seemed to be everywhere!
Don’t be deceived by the blue skies in the photos though. It started to pour around 3pm – but a great day and everyone seemed to enjoy it.
Gospel on the Go – Ringside!
If you missed the opportunity for free literature get in touch with us through the Contact Us section of the website or pop into the Hall any Sunday night around 6.30 when we have our Gospel Service.
Thanks also go to Graham Patterson from Gospel on the Go who brought along his trailer, which was in danger of making us look professional.
Thanks too to the conveners of the Benarty Gala day for giving us a great pitch ringside.
Despite the weather the kids from our Sunday School and Teenage Bible Class had a great day on Saturday. Races at Lochgelly Centre followed by a treasure hunt and barbecue at Lochore Meadows Country Park. Thankfully the rain eased off in the afternoon!
Craig’s series of meetings on the Tabernacle was exceptionally well attended but if you missed any of the nights you can catch up thanks to Alan Lockhart’s Treasury of Bible Teaching website. Many thanks to Alan for making this available.
For anyone with an interest in getting a deeper understanding of the Word of God, you are very welcome to join us any Friday night over the next few weeks at 8pm where Craig Munro will be looking at the subject of the Tabernacle in the Wilderness as recorded in the latter part of the book of Exodus.
For full details of the meetings please refer to our diary. If you open up the link and then click on any of the Friday night meetings you will get full details of the subjects being taken up on each night.
Many thanks to everyone who joined us at the Lochgelly Centre for our conference on the last day of the year. For those who came back to the Gospel Hall at Glencraig afterwards here is a reminder of the singing:
It was recorded on a mobile phone (thanks Kevin!) and while we might not win many awards for quality there was certainly plenty of volume.
If you are planning on joining us for our New Year Conference, good news! Further to our previous post, the repairs to the Forth Road Bridge have been completed ahead of schedule and the bridge has been re-opened to cars as of the early hours of this morning. Unless you plan to arrive in an HGV with a laden weight in excess of 7.5 Tonnes you should be fine.
Join us for the Glencraig Christian Conference on the last day of 2015! God willing we intend to hold a conference for the teaching of God’s Word at the Lochgelly Centre on Thursday 31st December 2015 commencing at 3pm.
For those of you who have attended our end of year conference before, please note the change of venue. The Centre’s full address is:
The Lochgelly Centre
Fife KY5 9RD
There is free parking available in the adjacent public car park, accessed off Landale Street.
If you are travelling from South of the River Forth – please note that the Forth Road Bridge has been closed (completely!) for safety reasons until January 2016 at the earliest. If you are flying into Edinburgh Airport the easiest solution would be for you to take a bus or tram from the airport to Edinburgh Haymarket (or Waverley) railway stations and to catch a train into Fife from there as the rail bridge is unaffected.
If you are hiring a car or if you are driving North from the South or West, there are alternative routes available via Stirling or the Clackmannanshire Bridge. Provided you plan your journey accordingly it should make little difference to your overall journey time. For the latest advice on travelling across the Forth please follow this link at the Traffic Scotland site.
Thanks to all from the community who came along to our official opening event this evening. It was fantastic to see so many local people – your support is really appreciated. Please, please make it a priority to come back again soon.
For those who couldn’t make it, here is a short video that we showed to show the construction of the new hall and a bit of the history of the Gospel Hall in the Benarty Area.
