Messy Church

   Dunlop Messy Church Saturday 28th November live
   on Messy Church Facebook page at 11am.


   Messy Church In-A-Bag and On-line is back this Saturday, 28th November!


   It’s nearly Advent, when we begin our countdown to Christmas.


  In the past we’ve had Christingle Services in the Church, and last year we had our first ever Christmas Tree Service. Sadly, we can’t get together to do that this year, so in your bags you’ll find everything you need to make your own Christingle at home. We’re also giving you star and angel shapes for you to decorate and hang on the trees outside the Church Hall and the Church, or in Lugton. That way, you can be part of the Christmas decorations around our communities this year.


 To get your Messy Church bag, come along to our Gazebo outside the Church Hall on Saturday from 11am to 1.30pm. As well as the Christingle and tree decorations, you’ll get what you need to make an Advent Chain to countdown to Christmas, and some light-up neon bangles just for fun!


If you can’t make it along on Saturday for your bag, just get in touch and we’ll get a bag to you.

Messy Church will be on-line from 11am, so you can watch the video and start getting creative as soon as you’ve got your bag.

Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday!


We hope to re-open our building in November.

Please contact Rev Alison McBrier or Session Clerk, Margo McMurdo (contact page), if you have any questions or would like to have a chat about how we might gather to worship safely and meaningfully as we ease our way out of lockdown.


Christmas Appeal East Ayrshire Churches Homelessness Action:
This year there will again be a collection for children affected by homelessness at Christmas.
As many in the community are still not out shopping, there will be a cash collection to help with gifts for children
and the purchase of tinned goods for the residents in temporary accommodation, that is in the hostels and temporary flats
throughout East Ayrshire so that they can have a festive meal on Christmas day.
Norman has kindly agreed to have a collection can for the Christmas Appeal on behalf of East Ayrshire Churches Homelessness Action (EACHa).

If you already have gifts prepared, please contact: Margo McMurdo 01560 484824 or Lesley Beaton 01560 484989
and we will arrange collection.

We appreciate the support this appeal always receives from the congregation and the wider community.

Margo McMurdo, Session Clerk

We are most appreciative of all the support we receive from members and friends of our congregation and parish,
 especially at this very difficult time.



Dunlop is a small, friendly village in rural Ayrshire.
We in Dunlop Parish Church of Scotland feel that our church is at the heart of the community.
We have a long and proud history of loving and serving the people of our parish, which also includes the communities of Burnhouse, Lugton, Newmill and the Halket.
Dear friends and neighbours, as this crisis develops it is increasingly clear that we need to avoid physical contact and stay at home as much as possible, so the church doors will have to remain closed.
We know that God is always active in our lives and our world.
There has been tremendous community spirit in the parishes of Caldwell and Dunlop, and we are seeing that reflected across the country.

I'm going to have a shot at using Facebook Live for a short time of reflection and prayer on Sunday morning. Look out for that on the Church Facebook pages. I'll also provide a range of on-line resources to help you worship in your own homes. Check the TV and Radio schedules for other Acts of Worship that you can watch or listen to.
Remember that physical distancing does not mean social distancing - we are social creatures and we can maintain our social contact by whatever means we have - on and off-line. Emails, phone calls, waving and smiling at a safe physical distance.

And we can pray - for our communities - people of all ages.
For all those whose lives and occupations are disrupted, and who are struggling with financial uncertainty.
For those who are working to maintain supply chains, and essential services. For our civic and religious leaders.
For all those who work in healthcare - in whatever capacity.
For researchers and scientists who are working to create treatments and a vaccine.

Keep caring for each other, as I know you are.
Please pass on my words here to anyone you know is not on-line.
Peace, and hope, and love be with you all,

Rev Alison McBrier,
Caldwell and Dunlop Parish Churches
