Serving the Community
As a church we are keen to serve the community, whether locally or further afield. We are a collection centre for the local foodbank and in the past few years, we have organised free family fun days and fireworks events for the local area, as well as running a stall at the Ardrossan Highland Games with face-painting and activities for families.
Our Senior Pastor is part of the Chaplaincy Team at Auchenharvie Academy as well as being Chaplain for Saltcoats Victoria FC.
As a church we want to be involved in what God is doing both locally and globally. Our missionary group organise regular events to inform and inspire us. Coming up are events about BMS, SAT7, WEC and OMF.

Some of our members are also actively involved in the individual projects below, that serve the community.
Men's sheds community spaces for men to connect, converse and create. The activities are often similar to those of garden sheds, but for groups of men to enjoy together. They help reduce loneliness and isolation, but most importantly, they’re fun.
The Creative Hands group meet monthly to make cards, bookmarks, decorative and practical items for your home, knitted items for babies and children to name but a few! They then sell these at coffee and craft events during the year to raise funds for specific charities.
They have close links with the Smiles Foundation, a charity working in Romania, but support local charities, too.
West Coast Furniture Bank
This is a non-profit organisation providing household items free of charge to those in need. Referrals are taken from outside agencies e.g. social work & addiction services as well as personal referrals. In the six months from June -December 2017, 75 families were helped, and more than 300 items despatched!
If you have any items of furniture that might be useful, or you know someone who needs help, please get in touch.

Centrestage is all about #funfoodfolk and this underpins everything they do across their community of projects. Most importantly, all their members are valued as individuals. They all have a story to tell. Together, they create a community of energy, potential, support and belief. To help build an energetic and inclusive society is their greatest aspiration.’
The Ayr Ark is a youth project situated down by the Citadel in Ayr. They aim to provide a safe alternative to the many peer pressures that young people are faced with by running diversionary events in the alcohol-free night club setting. They run events on a Friday night and are open for a more chilled evening mid-week once a month.
