As a ‘gathered’ congregation, we recognise the need to spend time together in a social environment so that relationships can be built, friendships strengthened and those new to our fellowship can feel welcomed and ‘at home’. Extended post-service coffee times and regular buffet lunches on Sundays are central to this.
During the Summer months, the Steeple Out & About programme is organised to offer organised outdoor activities including walks, cycle rides, barbecues and football or rounders matches, usually followed by a visit to a café.
Two annual outings are organised for the older members of the congregation, popular venues being to Dobbies and Glendoick Garden Centres.
Every second Saturday during the Winter months, snow permitting, the Steeple Ski-Club heads to Glenshee. Over the years, many have experienced skiing for the first time, while access to skiing equipment is made easily available.
The Steeple Craft Group meet together regularly and make cards and other produce, which are then sold to help raise funds for congregational and other causes.
Steeple Men is a group of mainly retired men who meet weekly to play pool and to chat. They include some from outwith the congregation.
Our Sanctuary space is proving to be a great venue for parties and ceilidhs.
