As a church we endeavour to be aware of our responsibility to our community both near and far and as such we support the work of many organisations throughout the year.

Scripture Union are about valuing children and young people. They help them explore what Jesus said and did. They offer times and places where they can discover, challenge and decide. This is done by supporting local SU Groups, offering children and young people the opportunity to experience camps and outdoor adventures most importantly everything is underpinned in Prayer. Find out more about SU here.
Storehouse is a local charity organised by The Full Gospel Church. Storehouse aims to provide essential supplies to families in crisis in the Dalkeith area. Regular, ongoing donations of food, as well as essential household supplies meet the immediate needs of those in crisis. Please keep an eye on our pew leaflet and magazine as on an ad hoc basis larger items are often required. Small items can be left in the basket at the back of church however, please speak to Andrew or Peter if you think you have something else that may be of use! Together we can make a difference.
At Easter time, Storehouse will be delivering parcels to families in the community to help during the school holidays. Below is a list of items that would be really helpful for the parcels, if there is anyone in your congregations who would like to contribute something. Please remember that we have lots and lots of pasta and pasta sauce – no need to give this.
Once again, many thanks for your ongoing support – it is so appreciated.
