Clackmannan Church is blessed with a thriving community of children and teenagers. The Congregation has a number of groups and events which provide teaching in the Christian faith as well as opportunities for fellowship, friendship and fun.
Safeguarding is paramount, and the congregation takes very seriously its commitment to keep the young people with whom it works safe and well.
Our Sunday-school provides a programme of Christian Education for children from 3 yrs to 12 years (P7). This year we are basing our teaching material on ‘Roots’, the lectionary based material supported by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland. ‘Roots’ is suitable for all ages.
We also operate a crèche for babies and children under 2 years.
Vision is the name given to our two secondary school age groups.
Vision caters for S1s and S2s, and meets on a Sunday morning during Church.
Night-Vision is for S3s and above, meeting twice a month in the manse.
THE BOYS’ BRIGADE
The first uniformed youth organisation for Boys, our Company [36th Stirling (Clackmannan) Company] meets on Friday evenings in Clackmannan Town Hall and Boys aged 5 upwards are always welcomed.
Each year we run a Holiday Club for Primary School Children which takes place in Clackmannan Town Hall during the school summer holidays. In 2013 our Club ‘Gold Diggers’ had a theme based on the cowboys of the wild west. Details of the 2016 Club will be published shortly, please keep a look out.
Apart from the youth groups listed above there are other groups, including Scouts, Cubs, Beavers, Brownies and Guides in the village. These particular groups meet in the Scout and Guide Hall, in Port Street. Although they are not part of the Church, many of their leaders are active within the Congregation.
