The Community Outreach Group has, at its heart, a desire to share something of God’s love with those in our local community and beyond through organising social events, other activities and supporting charities.
Activities in 2014 included the annual summer fair, a quiz night, Easter lunch, Harvest lunch, ceilidh and a walk along the Innocent Railway towards Duddingston and return.
Events in 2015 have so far included a Coffee morning and we have assisted The Bethany Trust in hosting around 40 homeless people overnight; providing a warm evening meal and breakfast the following morning.
Future events in 2015 will include the summer fair and a gentle 2 hour approx. walk into Holyrood Park. During the coming months, we will also be reviewing the church’s 5 year plan, providing mini stories of the members of St Peters, and facilitating deeper engagement with the charities we choose to support.
How can you get involved?
We are a mixed-age group, meeting on a 6 weekly basis in the house of one of the group members. New members are always welcome. Please contact Liz Hare on 0131 337 8570 or 07770 623924 or lizhareATblueyonder.co.uk for more information.(Replace AT with ‘@’.)
