Job description below:
Manse & Ministry Committee
This committee meets three times a year: normally in mid February, the end of May and again in early November.
The Finance Committee
A meeting of the Finance Committee (November 2011) outlined their remit as follows:
a. Oversee the Church finances and submit the accounts and budgets.
b. Manage Gift Aid and make tax reclaims.
c. Manage Freewill Offering and issue new envelopes as required.
d. Bring financial matters to the attention of the Congregational Board.
e. Oversee systems of dealing with offerings at services.
f. Oversee investments and to write to the Stewardship Convenor once a year in November advising what they think the shortfall will be for the following year and requesting details of proposed fundraising to meet any gap, preferably by the end of February.
The Worship Group meets 3 times a year. It is not to be confused with the Worship Committee (The Worship Committee is responsible for picking the hymns).
There are eight of us on the joint Worship Group plus the minister. We meet to discuss the relevant services for different times in the year, e.g. – Holy Communion, Christmas, Easter, etc., taking into account any extras like Messy Church and stewardship, which we have to try to slot into the calendar. We also try to be mindful of other activities going.
We are also responsible for new ideas to try to make church a little bit different at times – and also to try to entice new members in to share Sunday mornings and all the activities with us.
We are also open to feedback – so please let us know what is going well for you as far as the worship is concerned – and also, of course, what is not quite so good. We are open to suggestions, so feel free to suggest, suggest, suggest!
Minutes of our meetings are also kept – so you are most welcome to read them for yourself if you wish. Just ask for a copy.

Chaplaincy Team (please note that this was written pre 2017)
The idea of Chaplaincy Teams arose through the Church of Scotland's desire to give children in schools the opportunity to hear about Christianity.
Nelu, visits Inverbrothock school frequently and sees many of the children on a one-to-one basis.
The Chaplaincy Team at present is Nelu, Bill Beedie and Alice Menmuir, of Knox's, and Betts Ferrier. At the moment, we visit Inverbrothock Primary School on one Monday morning per month to take the Assembly There are over 400 pupils. The Head teacher and her colleagues are very supportive and the children are well behaved.
We have approximately 30 minutes with the children. We speak about values that the school is teaching the children or when it is the time of Advent, Christmas, Easter etc. we would explain what these great Christian events are about.
We also give a Bible reading from a Children's Bible and explain the Biblical relationship to the topic. We intersperse the talks with either a hymn or song.
Finally, Bill leads us in prayer which includes the teaching of the Lord's Prayer and we close with the Benediction.
