We take the spiritual development of the congregation seriously. There are a number of initiates to foster a deeper relationship with God. The Wonderers This is a group, open to all ages, that meets on the last Friday of every second month at the Rectory. The aim is to enjoy an informal worship; discussion of biblical or religious topics ending with a “bring and share” meal. Daily Prayer Booklets Developing the ability to pray on a regular basis is at the heart of the Christian life. There are many ways to pray. One aid that we offer to the congregation is a weekly daily prayer booklet which can be used at home.  Prayer Hour at the Rectory Everyone is leading a frazzled life – even those who are retired. One way of coping is to develop the ability to carve out time to sit with God. The Prayer Hour at the Rectory takes place on the last Wednesday of each month. Folk gather at the Rectory for a mixture of quiet time and praying for the needs of each other and the world. St Ninian’s Prayer Circle We have a group of people who feel called to pray for all those who ask us to pray for them on a regular basis. The may be ill or in trouble. We maintain a public list of those who have requested to be put on our prayer list and their names are mentioned at our services on either Thursday or Sunday. Healing Services We all need to get spiritual help for our fears and worries whether they are physical or emotional. We therefore offer on the first Saturday of each month a tailor-made Eucharist where there is space to receive special prayers, blessings and an anointing to help the individual in their particular struggle. People attend either to seek prayer and spiritual strength for their specific needs or to pray for others. St Ninian’s Kids Children are important to us. We cater for the needs of children by offering them a role as valued members of our congregation and we attempt to nurture their social, physical and spiritual needs by using a dedicated team to try to meet those needs. Our Kids range in age from toddlers to adolescents. Crossmyloof Day-Care Centre and Club Outreach to the wider community is important. For example, our Church Hall and facilities are used on a regular basis by community groups. One specific example of outreach is the that The Rector is chaplain to the Crossmyloof day-care centre and every second month conducts an appropriate service of hymns and readings for both the day visitors and the permanent residents who are living in the attached Crossmyloof Home.
