Children & Youth activities
Children and young people are welcome to attend services in the Churches of Hobkirk & Southdean linked with Ruberslaw congregations, and, when children are present, there is normally an item of the service of particular interest to them. Consideration is currently being given to new ways of serving the children and young people of the parishes.
