Welcome to Worship:  Today we look forward to being led in worship by        Rev. Jamie Milliken.  Please make Jamie most welcome.                        

Sunday Teas:  Tea/coffee will be served in the hall after the service today.        All are welcome.

United Irvine Church Services:  Please join all branches of United Irvine at two special services – one today, Sunday 19th May, at 3.00pm in Fullarton ConneXions  for our quarterly worship together. The other is on Sunday     23rd June at 11.00am in Irvine Royal Academy’s Assembly Hall, Kilwinning Road, Irvine. This will be an all-age service (and there will be a crèche to                    cater for young children) and will allow us to celebrate and explore the  values and vision which the Kirk Session and West Kilbride Away-Day attendees have been identifying and developing since uniting in October 2023. This will be a glorious chance to worship God together on a Sunday morning! If you need help with transport please contact our                Administrator, John MacDonald at unitedirvinecs@gmail.com
