In 2010, the three Churches of Scotland joined together to reach out to the young people of Montrose, employing a part time Youth and Family Worker funded by the Church of Scotland.  After some time the team managed to raise further funding to make the job full time.  With the recent Presbytery reorganisation, the post is now fully funded by the church of Scotland, the present worker being Shona Barakat. 

Shona's work is wide and varied.  For MYPlay, she runs  Toddler and Carer playgroups on Mondays in Trinity Ferryden Hall and on Thursdays in Philos Community Hub, both in term time. 

MYChat'n'Play is a weekly lunchtime event in the playground of one of the Primary schools when Shona gets to know the children and vice versa.  Scripture Union's Bible Alive courses have been another success story in two of our Primary schools where she has delivered them as part of the curriculum.

During school holidays Shona runs Lego Clubs at various venues and also provides provides Lego clubs in two primary schools during term time.  Lego has such all age appeal that Lego Church has been established for families, running in Trinity Steeple Halls every 5-6 weeks on Sundays 4-5pm, with a bible story, Lego building and a snack. 

But adults are catered for too - Pottery and Pudding nights for the mums and all family members and a curry night for all adults. 


Look at the calendar (via the Activities Page) to see when events are taking place.  Just come along - families are always welcome.
