Congregational conference  You’re invited to join our congregational conference which starts at 10am on Saturday 2nd September in Prestwick South Church, Prestwick KA9 1NX. We’re offering travel there and back for £2, leaving Orchardhill at 9am

We’re joining together for a meal and conversation in Whitecraigs Golf Club from 6.30 until 8.30 that evening (cost £18) and hope you’ll be coming along! This is all to plan our future as a congregation and to take some practical early steps. We need everyone’s enthusiastic support.

David Reid Memorial Cup Members and friends of Orchardhill are invited to compete for this trophy on Saturday 9th September at Rowallan Castle Golf Club, teeing off between 1.00pm and 2.00pm.  A two course meal and prize giving will follow the event, which hopefully will be well supported.
