The photo albums here offer a look at some of the church’s recent events.
'Messy Church'. The first Messy Church Session was held on Monday 6th October 2014 in the Church Hall and was attended by more than 25 parents and children. The theme was 'I am the true vine' and we explored Jesus' words by making a collage of vines, weaving friendship bracelets, making bookmarks and bobbing for apples as well as enjoying songs and prayers and having our tea together.
The aim of Messy Church is to create the opportunity for parents, carers and children to enjoy expressing their creativity, sit down together to eat a meal, experiencing worship and have fun within a church context.

'Summer Club 2014.' This year's theme for the week long club for primary age children was "Mega Makers".
During Mega Makers children entered the inventor's workshop and made some mega discoveries about God, heard about how God's love is far wider and longer and higher and deeper than we can ever imagine and found out what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
They celebrated God's most amazing invention: the natural world - the land and sea, the plants and the creatures, and most incredibly each of us

Summer Club 2013. This year's club for primary age children ran in the first week of the school holidays and had an outer space theme. As well as designing Space Academy t-shirts, the children created a rocket control centre, star wall frieze, Dalek cakes, mini pompom aliens and enjoyed astronaut ice cream. The centrepiece was a solar system of woven galactic bodies! There were songs, dancing and outdoor activities with Jazzy the clown on some of the hot days too.

Flower Festival. In August 2011 Meldrum Church was the venue for a wonderful Flower Festival. The theme was “Celebrations” and those taking part came up with some inspired ideas for their arrangements. There was an excellent response from the Organisations and Groups of the village and there were over 30 different arrangements which transformed our Church. A selection of the arrangements can be seen here.

Embroidery Group. A church embroidery group was formed in June 2011 to create textile art for our churches and the first pulpit fall was created for Pentecost in June and featured a burning bush. A floral fall was made for the Flower Festival in August and a wreath of autumn leaves was created for the Doric Service in Bourtie in September. This also hung in Meldrum Church for the annual harvest festival service.
