Thanks – The fantastic sum of £615.30 was raised at the Girls’ Brigade Christmas Fayre. A huge thank you to all who attended on the evening or who gave a donation.
Food Bank — A reminder that dried, tinned & packaged items for the Food Bank are required. Contributions can be left in the marked box in the church vestibule.
Post Box — You may have noticed as you entered the church that we have the post box sitting in the church vestibule. As in previous years, this is a free service provided by the Elders, so please use this post box for any Christmas cards that you may be sending to members of the congregation; but not for people from outwith the church family, since these will not be delivered. Also, it would be a big help if you could please put the full name, & if possible the address, on the envelope to ensure that it is delivered to the correct person. The post box will be available up to & including next Sunday 17th December.
Memory Tree – Once again this year we have a memory tree. There are little heart shaped plaques available for you to write your messages of remembrance or your prayer requests. These can then be hung on the tree. There is no charge for this service, but should you wish to donate towards the cost of the plaques then please leave your donation in the dish provided.
