Regnal League

The Regnal League is a Christian men's organisation established by the Rev Donald Standfast during the First World War with the aim of encouraging Christian discipleship, friendship and fellowship.

The 2018-19 session begins on Monday 24th September; new members very welcome.

Sidlaw Regnal Circle meets in Murroes Church Hall on the second and fourth Monday evenings from September to April. The meetings start at 7.30 and finish around 9.30 pm following tea and sandwiches. We have various speakers, slide and video shows, and other events, including trips to places of interest. In the past we have visited the Maggie's Centre, a working Wind Turbine, Dundee's Mills Observatory, the Royal Marine base at Arbroath, the Bo'ness Preservation Railway, the Museum of Flight near Edinburgh, and the Secret Bunker in Fife to name but a few.

Our meetings are open to all and there is no obligation to join. Please feel free to come along to a meeting as a visitor. We would be pleased to welcome you.

Auchterhouse Church Knitting Circle

Needles and pins and instant wins

 
We have been busy throughout the year knitting and crocheting and meeting every couple of months for coffee and chat. 

We have been able to support the following organisations with various items:-

The Hospice at Whitehills Community Hospital in Forfar.

Every new patient is given a gift of a knitted or crocheted shawl or knee blanket and we have managed to give them a large number of these items, along with a note wishing them well.

Blythswood Care

  • We have made various garments and blankets including hats, gloves, scarves and jumpers.

Rachel House

  • We were able to give several items for sale on the craft stall at the fund-raising lunch held by Auchterhouse Rural.

Ninewells Special Care Baby Unit

  • We knit tiny hats for the premature babies.

We are always delighted to welcome new members who enjoy crocheting or knitting or even perhaps want to learn a new skill or brush up on what they learned many years ago!

Anyone who is interested please contact Christina Duncan (Tel: 380225) or Sue Stewart (Tel: 320339) for more information. We would also be very pleased to hear of any organisations who would welcome our help.
