Regular Worship

Morning worship is held every Sunday at 11.00 am.  On Remembrance Sunday the service begins at 10.45 am.

Family Services are held monthly except for July.  These usually involve the Praise Group and members of K-Max, J-Max and Y-Max.

Communion

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated five times a year: Card Communions on the second Sunday of March, June, September and December (sometimes the first Sunday in December) at 11.00 am, 3.00 pm.  3.00 services are held in the hall and are particularly suited to wheelchair users/disabled.  A Family Communion Service is held on the last Sunday of the year (11.00 am).

Hymns and Bible

We use CH4 (The Church Hymnary, Fourth Edition) and together with additional hymns and songs, they are projected onto a screen.  Hymnbooks are available at the door.  There are Pew Bibles (Revised Standard Version) and page references are given for the readings.

Children in Church

Children are always welcome in Maxwelltown West.  The Sunday School (K-Max for age 3½ to P3; J-Max for P4-P7) meets at 11 a.m. on Sunday mornings from September until the end of May, except for school holidays.  There are Crèche facilities every Sunday where babies and toddlers may be looked after for all or part of the service, as required.

Y-Max (young people in S1 and above) meets on Sunday evenings from mid-September to Easter, usually at The Manse (7.00-8.15 pm).  They take a leading role in monthly Family Services, doing drama sketches and readings.
