A MAJOR landmark in the history of a Troon church was celebrated at a recent service.

To mark the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Church of the Nazarene in Troon, a special celebration service was held on Saturday, August 25.

It was led by Pastor David Rudge and included well-loved hymns. Several people shared how much the church means to them. Greetings were received from the District Superintendent Jim Ritchie and former pastors of the church, Clair Fender and Albert Garrick.

Refreshments were enjoyed by all and a cake, made by Elizabeth Hannah to mark the occasion, was cut by Ted Lovett.

Story boards which map the church’s history have been produced and mounted in the entrance hall and a multitude of old photographs are also on display in the church.

These will be available for all to see on Saturday, from 1pm until 4pm when the church will be open as part of the "Doors Open Day in Ayrshire" programme.

All are welcome to come along, view the displays and enjoy the refreshments that will be available.
