Thursday 24th December : Christmas Eve service in Garvald Church at 6.00 pm. We will play recordings of carols and you can hum along behind your masks. Members of the congregation will do readings of the Christmas story. For the final carol, weather permitting, we would like to go outside the church, spread out as much as we can and gently sing.
Christmas Eve Watchnight Service in Morham Church at 11.30 pm will follow the same plan.
To guarantee a space in the church at either or both of the Christmas Eve Services please use the contact form below. We will endeavour to fit in any late arrivals but the capacity of each church is significantly reduced right now.
Christmas Eve collections will be in aid of Leuchie House
Here is a fantastic opportunity for anybody looking for a little creative project to keep them busy during the dark winter nights. The photo below shows two chairs – there are 20 altogether – which can be stained/painted/varnished and decorated any way you like. They can be ribboned/cushioned/accessorised and even sat on! Then next summer they can be entered in the specially created category in the Garvald Flower Show for upcycled chairs – and you can bask in the admiration of all your neighours. All we ask in return for a chair, is a small donation to the church roof fund.
Please use the contact form to request a chair or several chairs
Christian Aid Week 10-16 May
Love never fails. Coronavirus impacts all of us. But love unites us all.
Please consider donating this week to help the most vulnerable people in the world’s poorest countries. The link takes you to a special message from Garvald and Morham Churches
We are very proud of the the fact that the churches in Garvald and Morham are open every day for everyone and anyone to visit.
Sadly we have just been informed by Church of Scotland HQ that all churches are to be locked as an additional precaution to try and prevent the spread of Covid-19.
However, the two graveyards are lovely peaceful spots on a Spring Day and we encourage you to include them in your daily walks.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
As you have probably gathered from the news ,there will be no church services in Garvald or Morham for the next few weeks.
However both churches remain open every day and you are more than welcome to visit, enjoy the peace, say a prayer, do some piano practice (or any musical instrument) and appreciate the daffodils.
The AGM for the fundraising group Friends of Garvald Church will take place in The Stables on Monday 17th February at 7.30 pm. Everyone welcome

The children of Garvald will be performing at the church on Saturday 1st June, followed by a chance to enjoy some tea and cake. TICKETS: £5 on the door.
This will start at 6 pm so anyone with evening plans (e.g. watching the Champions League football or going out for dinner) can fit in an early evening musical extravaganza BEFORE they go!!
This week is Christian Aid week so envelopes will appear through your letter-boxes and our collectors will be calling round later to collect any donations.
This video tells you a bit about the work Christian Aid does in some of the poorest countries in the world: Christian Aid video Tenneh’s Story – Christian Aid Week 2019. A short film featuring Nurse Judith and mum Tenneh in Sierra Leone.
Please be as generous as you have in the past, so that collectively we can send some help to those so much less fortunate than ourselves. Thank you.
