August 2019 marked the 10th year that Messy Church has been happening in Portobello and Joppa,  and it also marked the 5th anniversary of the merged congregation worshipping together at Portobello and Joppa Parish Church. To celebrate both of these anniversaries, the entire congregation (9:30am worship, 11am worship and Messy Church) took part in a Messy Church takeover of Sunday Worship on September 1.

Starting in the church with a celebration time (gathering and worship), the congregation then went to the halls and church grounds for activities (crafts, prayer activities, gardening, games, and even a sermon option), before gathering again in the main hall for a soup and sandwich lunch.


On Sunday September 1 the congregation of St Nicholas Church, Prestwick  bade farewell to their minister of over 34 years, the Rev George R Fiddes. A Dundonian by birth, Mr Fiddes began his ministry in Auchterless, Aberdeenshire, before being called to Prestwick  in 1985. His retirement was marked by a family service on the Sunday morning at which a cheque was presented by two Sunday School children and flowers were given to George’s wife, Carol. This was followed by a ‘family gathering’ of 200 members and friends in the church hall.
