Charity Collection

Teenage Cancer Trust

On Saturday 24th March three young people from St Cuthbert’s volunteered to help raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust.  Megan Roberts, Sarah Park and Amy Park, along with three youngsters from Kilwinning willingly gave up their Saturday afternoon to be involved in a national fundraising day at Aldi in Saltcoats.

Their efforts exceeded all expectations and jointly they helped to raise £1710; the largest amount collected at any Aldi store in the UK that weekend.  The girls’ conduct and enthusiasm were highly praised by the ALDI management and TCT organisers. They were a credit to themselves, their families and the church. TCT is a fantastic organisation which raises much needed funds to provide specialist nursing care and support for young people diagnosed with cancer.

A New Minister

It was with great joy that the Nominating Committee of Saltcoats St. Cuthbert’s Parish Church announced on Sunday 15th April 2018 that Rev. Sarah Nicol  of Aberdeen Midstocket Parish Church would preach as sole nominee at St. Cuthbert’s on Sunday 29th April at 10.45am for the vacant charge. The church was well filled with members and friends of the church on that day as we opened a new chapter in our history. After a wonderful service Sarah was duly elected. As we wait for the Presbytery processes to be completed we look forward to the Induction Service which looks likely to take place in early August.

” All are welcome in this place.”

Rev Arthur Sherratt

It was with great sadness that the congregation learned of the death of our former minister, Rev. Arthur Sherratt.

Arthur was inducted into the charge of Saltcoats St Cuthberts from Kilbarchan in 2014 and retired in 2016.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Susan and their family at this time.
