On the 10th December during the service, the Bible Study group gave a very interesting talk about the Chrismon tree, explaining all of the symbols relating to Christmas accompanied by a slide show.
The children gave us a delightful Christmas presentation on the 10th December during the service, where they sang as they decorated their Christmas tree. The congregation joined in with the chorus prayer after each verse.

We met at the manse on Friday, 8th December, where we enjoyed an evening of good fellowship, good food served by Ian and Jennie Syme and good music from George and Ross. Sang had a lovely log fire burning and a good time was had by all.
Jennie Syme hosted this fundraising event for our Conservation project recently. A fun evening of fellowship, the evening raised £228 for our project.
Johnny Lee Memphis, award winning Elvis impersonator, performed in aid of our Conservation Project in Dunmar House Hotel on Friday 8th September. We all had a great time singing along to his hits and quite a few brave people got up to dance. Grateful thanks are due to "Elvis", to the Dunmar for providing the venue and to Jennie for organising the event. The grand total of £1,571 was raised for our conservation project!
Friday 1st September
An appreciative audience enjoyed this performing tribal group from southern Kenya who have toured UK schools and churches in recent years. They amazed us with their dancing, singing and jumping. We were given an insight into their way of life through a Powerpoint demonstration of their homeland. The money raised from the concerts helps families in the Maasai areas of Kenya through education, health and providing local clean water. They also sold a beautiful array of hand made beadwork.
Beatrice Campbell had invited Master Gin Maker, Tom Nichol to give a presentation in the ABC on Friday, 24th February at 7.30pm. It proved to be an interesting evening and there was time for fellowship. A substantial sum was raised for the Conservation Project.
St Mungo's hosted the World Day of Prayer on Friday, 3rd March at 7.30pm. This year's service had been prepared by the women of the Phillipines and the theme was "Am I being unfair to you?" It was attended by members from the other Alloa churches.
The Wednesday coffee Mornings are held in the Session House from 10.00 – 11.30am. These continue to be well supported by the ”regulars”. The lively atmosphere is very welcoming and relaxed and enjoyed by all who attend. If you are free on a Wednesday morning come along and join us for coffee or tea and sample the very good home baking for yourselves. We would be delighted to see you there! Once more we extend sincere thanks and appreciation to the team of much valued volunteers for their continuing commitment and generosity. The current schedule ends on Wednesday 28th June and restarts in September. Joyce and Elma
Refreshments continue to be available following the weekly Sunday service. These are served at the back of the church by a very willing team of volunteers on a rota basis, who undertake the duty on dates of their own choosing . Elma and Joyce who co-ordinate this are very appreciative of this regular support and extend grateful thanks to the team. If you feel you would like to add your name to the rota, there is a calendar placed on the table at the back of the church for this purpose and you are free to choose a suitable date. If you want more information, please feel free to discuss his with either Elma or Joyce. If you have not attended previously, why don’t you consider staying on after the service to join the increasing number of regulars for a cup of tea or coffee? We would be very pleased to welcome you. Come along and enjoy friendship, fellowship and an opportunity to get to know your fellow members.
On Saturday 2nd September from 10-1pm, there was an exciting opportunity to see stonemasons at work on the church. This was very interesting and informative. Some of the children and adults put their initials or a mark on one of the stones. This will be put up on the roof for future generations to find. Teas, coffees and delicious home baking were enjoyed in the session house.
'The current church was designed by architect James Gillespie Graham. The building, in droved ashlar, is one of his finest neo-perpendicular Gothic hall kirks. It has a rectangular plan with low square towers at each angle and an advanced gable centred on the north front. A spectacular 207 ft (63m) crocketed Gothic louth-spire tops the building, so called because it was based on a fifteenth-century design at Louth, Lincolnshire. The spire is centred on the south front and dramatically supported by corner turrets and flying buttresses. The tower is furnished with a four-dial clock and a finely toned bell, weighing about fourteen cwt.'
