Children & Youth
At the baptism of their children parents promise by prayer and example to bring their children up in the life and worship of the Church. At Cupar Old we
encourage and endeavour to help parents do this from their children’s earliest years. We also seek to sow seeds in the life of our children and young
people and share God’s love with them from an early age.
Babies and children under pre-school nursery age are looked after in a safe, friendly, well supervised environment. The crèche runs every Sunday in the
purpose built facility in Old Parish Centre except when there is an All Age Family Service when we worship together in the church. The crèche is run by
volunteers, if you would like to help please contact the co-ordinator Morven Naughton.
Sunday Club is our programme for pre-school nursery and primary school aged children running during school term. The children join the first part of the
Church service at 11.00am to worship with our church family and then go to the Old Parish Centre for Sunday Club. We use a variety of Scripture Union
materials. During school holidays the children meet for holiday activities, again meeting in the church first before going to the Old Parish Centre. For more information regarding Sunday Club please contact Jacqui Caldwell , Jacqueline.firstname.lastname@example.org
We are the joint Cupar Churches Youth Group. If you are in S2-S6 we’d love for you to join us as we hang out, have fun, grow and learn together. We play a lot of games, share snacks and explore how to apply the Bible to our everyday lives. Our meetings are on Wednesday evenings during term-time from 7:00 to 8:30pm at the Parish Centre. Please get in touch with Hendrick (07944 420792) if you’re interested in joining us or for more information.
Tots meet on a Tuesday from 9.30 - 11.30am. All parents with young children would be warmly welcomed to come along for play, singing time, crafts and a snack! It is a great opportunity for children and adults alike to socialise and have fun. For more information, please contact Jade Dalrymple (07432555679).
Our Babies group meets in the Old Parish Centre on a Thursday afternoon from 1-3pm. This is a chance for parents with Babies or young children to meet together and socialise while their children play. There are special crèche facilities for very young children. For more information, please contact Morag Scott on 07500 520915 or Zoe Gibson on 07739 009715.
Messy Church (last Saturday of the month)
Messy Church is a new form of church for all ages which appeals to children and adults alike and is great for families to worship together. Everyone gets involved in making and singing and doing and we learn together as we go. It’s also great if you don’t feel the traditional style of worship is for you or your family and you want something different.
There are crafts and fun followed by a short celebration with singing and a bible story. At the end we share a meal together!
The “messy” bit is partly about the crafts, partly that we don’t sit still and face the front and partly that it’s messy round the edges as people who don’t always fit at traditional worship can find a place at Messy Church.
Cupar Messy Church involves the town’s two Church of Scotland congregations and Cupar Baptist Church. We meet on the last Saturday of the month, from 3pm-5pm, and the venue rotates around the churches.
If you’d like to see more, please come. All children need to be accompanied by an adult, but all adults do not need to be accompanied by a child. If you’d like to roll up your sleeves and do some crafts, if you’d like to mix with other people, if you like something that’s not meticulously packaged but is a little messy, please come!
