A new venture for Chalmers Memorial Church

CAMEO (come and meet each other) is a new venture for Chalmers Memorial Church, a drop-in coffee time every Thursday afternoon between 2 and 4pm. We’ll be using the lower level meeting room which has comfy seating and a coffee bar where we are offering free teas, coffee and light refreshments. It’s open for all ages and might be of interest to parents and carers collecting their children from Cockenzie Primary School (a coffee before the children are collected or a coffee and juice once they have been collected!)… The entrance to the room is via the side door entrance to our Church Hall which is on Osborne Terrace – just a short distance from the school itself. We’d be delighted to see you there…
