Listed below are all the announcements happening in our around Fitzroy over the coming days and weeks.  To move between announcements, you can use the sidebar on the left or click on the Permalink at the bottom of each story.


1-World Lunch

Christian Aid£2,788 was raised on Sunday 4th November.

This particular lunch was unusual because instead of dividing the money raised between Christian Aid and Tear Fund, on this occasion all the money will be given to Christian Aid for the Christian Aid Harvest Appeal.  

The reason for this is that every £ given this year to the Christian Aid Harvest Appeal will be multiplied by 5 by the European Union so that Christian Aid may use 5 times the amount they would have had for life-changing work in Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Honduras and Malawi. 

The proceeds from the next One World lunch in Fitzroy will all go to Tear Fund.

Hand holding plantTaking Care

In Fitzroy we recognise we have a legal duty of care to look after children and provide a safe environment for them as best we can.  The Kirk Session has adopted the Presbyterian Church in Ireland’s child protection guidelines and our Policy can be viewed on the notice board in the rear hall.  This is aimed at creating an environment where children and young people may enjoy social contact, personal and spiritual development and where they and the leaders and helpers working with them will be kept safe.
