Friends of East and Old

Friends of the East and Old Parish Church

Purpose

The purpose of the 'Friends' is to bring together in a common fellowship of loyalty and devotion all those who care for this principal Church in Forfar and who would like to have some part in promoting its continued existence, preserving its fabric and maintaining its services. In order to do this the aims of the 'Friends' are twofold:

1. To encourage  people to experience friendship and fellowship through social gatherings which in turn will hopefully increase   attendance at Sunday services as people begin to feel more comfortable within the Church of 'East and Old'. It was set up in the autumn of 2008 with the hope of reaching out to members of the congregation as well as the wider community to encourage friendship and fellowship.

2. To generate more income for the Church.

In some part we hope that this group will help the East & Old to become a a thriving church with something to offer the community. 

The Friends team would like to thank everyone for their continued support to raise funds for the church.  Isobel A, Sheena B, Jean B, Manolita, Mary, Susan, Bob, Elizabeth, Helena, Barbara Ann
