9th November 2018

Meal with a Message at Kirkcaldy Free Church
You are warmly invited to come to our free and informal meal and get-together.                                                                                                                 When?  Saturday the 17th November from 530 – 730 pm                                                                                                                          Where? 191 St Clair Street, Kirkcaldy, KY1 2BX- next to the BP garage

What?  We’ll enjoy some food and drinks together, then between courses we’ll hear from Stuart Patterson, who used to be part of the gang and drug culture of Easterhouse but was wonderfully changed.  Come and hear how his life was turned upside down (or right way up) through hearing the good news about what Jesus has to offer us.

RSVP:  Please contact John Johnstone through the email on this site if you are coming, so we have a rough idea of numbers and how much food to get.

The Easterhouse drug-addict who became a pastor:

Stuart Patterson’s life has been one of many twists and turns.  Raised in Easterhouse in Glasgow, by the age of 19, gang violence and drug addiction had led to a prison sentence.

From then on, his life spiralled rapidly downwards, bringing misery to those who loved him.  Then during an incredible weekend in May 1997, at his darkest moment, Jesus Christ lifted him.  The stronghold of addiction was broken, giving Stuart love, value and purpose.

Stuart is happily married to Tracy, and they have three daughters.  He leads a church in the same Easterhouse shopping centre where he used to sell drugs, reaching out to those he grew up with.
