Have you ever lost something of value? Have you lost a treasure that you’d hidden away but were unable to find again? In September’s J.A.F.A. Church we’re looking at the stories Jesus told of The Lost Coin, The Lost Pearl and The Hidden Treasure. We’ll be looking at how God values us and all he created and how he is so happy when he finds us – just like the woman who found her lost coin, in fact!
We’ll be going on a treasure hunt, making dry clay hearts with pearls in them, and treasure chests which you can paint. So why not come along and join in – we’re at Abronhill Parish Church on Sunday 27th September from 4pm. Hope you can join us!

Two of our churches are taking part in this year’s annual Lanarkshire Doors Open Days event, which runs over the weekend of Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September.
Doors Open Days takes place in different locations in Scotland throughout the month of September each year and allows people access to buildings which are not usually open to members of the public.
We hope you will pop in and have a look around our beautiful and historic buildings and say “hello”. We’d be delighted to see you.
