Welcome to the website for Saltcoats St Cuthbert’s Church. Our pages contains information on all our organisations, our church services and the church history.
It seems no time at all since we were planning this event last year! However, preparations are well ahead for this year’s Christmas Fayre to be held on Saturday, 22nd November.
The stalls include home-baking, which is always a firm favourite and the first stall to sell out! There will be a stall with red-and-green items, bric-a-brac, crafts, games, books and toys. Other attractions this year include ‘Name the Dolly’, mystery bags, ‘Find Cuddles the soft toy’, ‘Guess the Weight of the Cake’ and ‘Amount of Sweets in the Jar’.
Donations for any of the above or for the tea-room will be most welcome. See either Nan or Evelyn or bring along on the day. Better still, why don’t you join us for a morning of fun, have tea, coffee and lovely home-baking, and do a bit of Christmas shopping too!
The small hall will again be used as the “Kiddies Corner” and this free activity has proved to be very successful in the past.
Admission charge for adults is £3 and children go free: all monies will go towards church funds.
Feel free to join us on 22nd November from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. – a date to highlight in your diary!

Below are some photos taken whilst setting up for our Harvest Thanksgiving Service. It was requested that provisions were suitable to be passed on the North Ayrshire Foodbank. Thanks to all who donated.
Expertly piloted by life long Saltcoats coach driver Bobby Graham, after an uneventful pleasant two hour journey, we paused for a break and a light lunch (some lighter than others!) at the Perthshire Visitors Centre at Bankfoot and then reboarded for the short distance to our destination.
Adjacent to the theatre, the Pitlochry Highland Games were in full swing and many of us lingered in the warm autumn sunshine listening to the music and sounds that wafted up from the event from the field below.
The stage performance was enjoyed by everyone and although the storyline was simple and a bit predictable there were many very amusing moments of theatre and some very topical one liners appreciated by a capacity audience.
The Afternoon Club recently held a trip to Dumfries House, followed by a meal at the Corran Inn. A gallery of photos from the outing is shown below.
