Cosy Cafe Sunday

Cosy Cafe Sundays….. is a brand new group for young people being run jointly by Hillhouse, Trinity, Blantyre: St Andrew’s, Blantyre: Livingston Memorial, Blantyre: Old and High Blantyre Baptist.

It is for young people in p7-s6 and is being held in Hillhouse Church on Sunday evenings from 6.30pm-8.30pm every 2 weeks.

The evening begins with an informal cafe time with hot chocolate, music and games before we think of the theme for the evening in various ways

There is a quiet zone set up and after all the activities, there’s time for more hot chocolate and a tuck shop.


All the churches involved have agreed to continue the youth group after a successfull pilot project in the autumn of 2010. With a core of around 20-25 young people coming along every fortnight, it was felt we had a good strong foundation to build and move forward from.

On Sunday 18th September, the Cosy Cafe decided to explore the big L………namely LOVE. We found it’s not always easy to distigush between what we LIKE and what (or who) we ACTUALLY LOVE. We may say we love chocolate or crisps or JLS or…….well the list could and did go on ! But do we really love these things ?

When we read about love in the bible, more specifically 1Corinthians 13:4-8 we read what love should be like. The young folk received bookmarks with the 1Corinthians passage on it, why dont you have a look at the passage, discover the type of love the bible shows us.

As well as a bookmark, we all received a special pack of Lovehearts, with the theme of the night and our groups name, as a wee momento of the night.


On Sunday night 4th December, we went on a journey into light. We had stations set out telling the stories of different people who have been changed by the light of Jesus. We heard the stories of Ruby Bridges, George McLeod, George Cadbury, St Columba and St Paul. This path of life stories led to a larger room filled with light, where we listened to the story of the birth of Jesus. We also had the chance to light and place a tea light in front of an empty crib as we wait on the birth of Jesus. I’m sure the pictures don’t do it justice !
