Love is in the air!

As this is the “month of luurve” Abronhill’s J.A.F.A. Church this month will be looking at God’s love in all its fullness. Come and join us on Sunday 28th February where we’ll be making tissue-paper flowers, heart-shaped chocolates, painting heart shapes with string, and more.

Oh, and for those who were at J.A.F.A. Church in January, please remember to bring your broad beans back which you planted to measure how much they’ve grown!

This month, we’re giving the adults time to relax in their own area before we have our meal together but don’t think you can put your feet up – there’s a ‘Famous Couples’ quiz for you to take part in!

J.A.F.A Church is at Abronhill Parish Church on Sunday 28th February from 4-6pm. See you then!
