We began nearly 19 years ago under the leadership of Mrs. Janet MacGregor who was a Church elder and saw a need for a Craft Group within the Church and she was an enthusiastic and talented crafter. Over the years the Craft Group has been a considerable contributor to the Christmas Market and Mini-Market and other Church events. The members of this group have varied interests: knitting, sewing, crochet, patchwork, felt crafts, etc. and meetings each Monday are full of fun and fellowship. The ladies meet in the Session House each Monday from 2 - 4 p.m. (September to June) and members come from St. Mungo`s Parish Church and other churches in the town. In recent years the ladies, (along with members of the congregation and friends), have produced garments for the "Fish 'n Chips" babies in Africa, handknitted hats and cardigans for the Neo-natal Unit at FVRH, Prayer shawls for local Homes for Elderly, and handknitted blankets for Blythswood Charity. They accept the challenges and produce the knitwear which is very much appreciated by those who receive it. Your work is very much appreciated. The Craft Group will stop for the holiday period after Monday 27th November. Happy Crafting! New members will be most welcome. Mondays need never be boring again - do come along and join in the friendship of the Craft Group. Crafters` hands are never idle.
The Guild has a long tradition of service to the Church and National Guild with many (National) Projects at home and overseas been hugely supported over the years. Within the Church family The Guild has been to the forefront of events and fundraisers as well as fun and fellowship. "The Guild is a movement within the Church of Scotland, which invites and encourages both women AND MEN to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and enables them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action". There are themes and discussion topics which we incorporate into our syllabus and we always include speakers and support two of the six national projects in our syllabus each session. Please don't say "I'm not old enough to join Guild" - do come along and join the fun and fellowship of The Guild and see for yourself, make new friends and learn more about the work of this wonderful organisation. If something has been popular for over 125 years it must be doing something right! The Guild resumes for the autumn session on the 10th October.
This group meets on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm at the home of Isla Roy. All are welcome to come along and discuss passages from the bible.

''The Friendship Club ( for people with memory loss ) meets in the Session House once a week from 12 noon till 4p.m. The Friendship Group is run by a group of trained volunteers and headed by a professional nurse, also a volunteer. The aim of the Friendship Club is to provide stimulation for the members through a hot meal, afternoon tea, chat, music,craft work and other activities''. We meet in the Session House on Thursdays from 11am till 4pm.
This group meets for practice in the Sesion House on Monday evenings at 7pm under the leadership of Sandy Sinclair. If you are interested in joining this successful team, Sandy would be delighted to welcome you.
Alloa Baby and Toddler Group has been meeting regularly for over 20 years., the last 4 years taking place in the Session House of St Mungo`s. The non denominational group is open to children from birth to 5 years old. However, with the advent of pre school classes, we usually lose children at 3 years of age, unless, of course, they have younger siblings attending the group, when they pop along during school holidays. It is nice to welcome old faces who are always proud to show that they still know the ropes! We meet from 9.30 to 11.30 every Friday during the year with the exception of 2 weeks off at Christmas/New Year. Activities include free play, creative play, messy play and a sing along followed by a healthy snack. Parents, grandparents, carers and child minders are offered tea, coffee and biscuits, having played their part in setting out the hall and later tidying up. These tasks have the added bonus of helping to break the ice for new members who soon feel quite at home. Nancy
'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.'
