Beith Christian Action Group
This group was formed by the four Churches in Beith in 1981. The purpose was to find ways to help the local area from the closure of Glengarnock Steelworks.
From these efforts a thrift shop was opened in 1987 managed by local clergy and representatives of the churches. The shop was staffed by volunteer ladies and all proceeds donated to local and national causes within the remit of our constitution.
We are a registered charity (SC013201) and regulated by OSCR. The shop has proven to be very successful, and able to support local, national and international causes.
We are indebted to our loyal and faithful volunteers, and the community who support the work of the Thrift Shop. We appreciate all donations of goods and help in the shop. There are no paid staff, all work is voluntary.
Opening hours are:
- Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9:00 am – 4:40 pm
- Wednesday and Saturday 9:00 am – 12:30 pm
The average yearly income is £25,000. Trustees are the minister, secretary and treasurer.
