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. We are delighted to be able to announce that on Sunday 27th October it was the unanimous decision of our congregation that Rev. Arthur Sherratt, preaching as sole nominee, be accepted as the new minister of Saltcoats St. Cuthbert’s Parish Church. It is with much pleasure and anticipation that we look forward to welcoming Rev. and Mrs. Sherratt to Saltcoats as soon as the necessary procedures are completed. As soon as a date for the Induction of our new minister is agreed by Ardrossan Presbytery it will be intimated in the monthly magazine and on this web site.
This year’s Christmas Fayre was held on Saturday, 23rd November.
A huge vote of thanks to everyone who contributed in any way to the success of this recent event.
A cold but bright morning enticed people to come out and from the moment the doors opened there was a continual buzz of activity until the last table was folded up and the floor swept. The two elders “volunteered” for brushing up the debris faced the challenge and frustration of one little helper finding amusement in redistributing the sweepings across the clean floor. The stalls were loaded with goodies, many of which had been hand made. from baking and craft items to lucky dips and guessing competitions. Christmas gifts were sourced and a welcome tea or coffee was on hand to help de-stress. The kiddies corner kept the younger visitors entertained after their meeting with Santa. Rumour has it, to help Santa make best use of his time, that one little sweetheart passed a note of her wish list with the Argos catalogue numbers conveniently alongside!
As well as generating some church funds this proved to be a happy way to mix and mingle with members of our church family and friends. With some monies still to come in the total already raised is approaching £1,400.
