Mondays

 The West Kirk Guild meets every other week between October and April with monthly summer teas.

We follow a programme of activities with speakers, social gatherings and fund raising for national Guild projects.


It’s a proven scientific fact that singing is good for you!

The Arbroath Male Voice Choir has a long tradition of music in the town and welcomes singers of all abilities.


  Tuesdays

In Harmony is a well-established ladies choir who welcome anyone who enjoys singing.

Meeting weekly in the Autumn and Spring we usually prepare for two concerts each year.


If you enjoy any kind of crafting, then this is the group for you.

Please get in touch for further details.


Wednesdays

Toddlers@WestKirk is held every Wednesday morning during school terms for all pre-school aged children and their carers. Come along for fun, friendship and support. Each week everyone enjoys, crafts, snack and songs as well as a wide variety of toys. There is a maximum number for this group so please contact us for more details


 If you’re looking for friends to spend an afternoon with, playing a game or two, listening to music and enjoying a blether,

then we welcome you to join us every week.


Meeting every Wednesday from Autumn to Spring for a bit of fun and exercise.

 

We welcome experienced dancers and those who’ve never tried it before.


Our bible study group meets throughout the year and we look at a variety of studies from books of the bible, to themes, to individual characters. 

It’s amazing what we learn from one another every week!


Thursdays

Each week the sanctuary is open for a quiet five minutes or more, to stop and let the world go by or a chance to reflect and think of others.

At the same time we are around to listen.


If you are in P3-P7 (or roughly ages 7-11), our Youth Club runs from 6-7.30pm every Thursday during school terms.

At a cost of 50p per week plus tuck, it’s a great way to meet others during a mixture of games, craft and activities.


 

Prayer is an essential part of each of our lives and it’s also powerful to share in prayer together.

We have a team of people who pray for our church family and our community with complete confidentiality at home and we also have a group who meet each month on Zoom to pray.


Fridays

Come along to the long-established Friday morning Coffee Stop where everyone is made welcome.

It’s a great way to meet new people, find out what’s going on at the West Kirk and around the area and enjoy a cuppy.


Sundays

We meet every week at the same time as weekly worship.

After joining everyone at the beginning, we then have our own time and space for games, crafts activities and bible stories.
