A big welcome to our new Youth and Children’s worker!

We are very pleased that Cassie Abousamak will be joining us as our Youth and Children’s worker at the end of April.  This is a joint appointment with Scripture Union Scotland and she will also be working in the Schools of north east Edinburgh.  Cassie is from the United States but she has also done a post graduate degree in Edinburgh and worked for a period as a trainee instructor at the SU centre at Lendrickmuir. While in Edinburgh she worshipped at St Paul’s and St George’s where she was a volunteer Youth leader.  She should be arriving in Edinburgh mid April and will start work at the end of April.

We are all looking forward to welcoming Cassie to our fellowship.

Message from Christine Hodge:

On 9th March we held a Big Inflatables’ Day at the Church. The aim was to have great fun and build up relationships with the different groups that were associated with our church.

We had: children from the Toddler group with parents included, BB company, Anchor boys and Juniors, from the SU group at Trinity Primary, children from Lighthouse groups on a Sunday, Footprints, Extravaganza children and friends. 

Along with Air Juggler and sumo wrestling, we had a Jungle Run with bouncy castle and a giant slide, and the Bungee Run which was popular with children and parents! 

Thank you to all who helped on the day and before to make it such a fun time.
