2012 MAY 19: SPONSORED WALK FOR CHRISTIAN AID
The weather changed into summer mode just in time for our walk to Morton Lochs in support of Christian Aid. A party of eight adults, five children and one dog (Millie) enjoyed a very pleasant walk and picnic lunch in the sunshine.
2012 APR 25: FAMILIES FIRST
On Wednesday 25th April Morag Coleman the Project Manager for Families First came to the Dickson Hall to give a talk to CATT on the work of the charity. Families First is based in St Andrews and supports families in and around the area, including Tayport. Befriending young people and running Breakfast Clubs in St Andrews Primary Schools are two of the main aspects of their work and they rely very heavily upon volunteers to carry out their mission.
It is hoped that individuals as well as congregations from the Tayport churches will support this very worthwhile charity that can transform lives in and around our community.
2012 MAY 27: SONGS OF PRAISE SERVICE
On the evening of Pentecost (Sunday 27th May) members of the churches in Tayport gathered in the evening sun to share worship in the grounds of Our Lady Star of the Sea. Organist Joe Antrobus and the choir of the Parish Church led our singing, prayers were led by Brenda Maynard and Morag Anne Elder, Ann McRobbie was the reader, and the homily was delivered by Rev Christine Barclay. Iain Flett gave the vote of thanks. The collection of £80 was donated to Families First.
