TEA, CAKE & CRAFT FUNDRAISER The Sunday Club and FYF are doing the teas after Church today to raise money for the teenager they support in South America. Please come and enjoy our home baking with a cuppa and a chat. Saffron will be playing the piano.  We have been busy making calendars, gift tags and coasters, come and give us a donation.  Even if you don’t have much time, we will bag up your cakes to take home.

PRAYER GROUP The prayer group will meet on Wednesday 2nd December at 10.00am in the small hall.

LADIES BIBLE STUDY The meeting on Wednesday 2nd December will see the start of our Advent studies looking at Mary, the Virgin Mother (Luke 1:26-45). We meet in the Church Hall at 1.30 pm for approximately one hour. Do try to come along and think about the Christmas Incarnation. If any ladies would like the notes prior to the meeting, please see Janette after the Service.

SOUP LUNCH Our next Soup Lunch is to be held on Friday 4th December at 12 noon in the Church hall. After some delicious soup and a cuppa, we plan to look at how Christmas is celebrated in different parts of the world. We look forward to seeing you there!

Carols, torchlight procession, shortbread, mince pies and general jollity Following the outstanding success last year, Ferintosh Parish Church, along with members of the 1st Conon Bridge Brownies, Conon Bridge Community Council, Amenities Association, Dingwall Rotary and others, will again be participating in the annual Conon Christmas lights illumination event on Saturday 5th December from 5.45 p.m. onwards.  After the Christmas tree lights are switched on at the War memorial at 6.00, those attending will be invited down to the Church hall for a bite, a cuppa and some great fellowship.

Miriam Singers The choir invite you to join them at Rosskeen Church hall on Monday 7th December at 7.30pm for their Christmas programme, “Born to Bring Love to the Earth”. There will follow a Christmas tea. Do come along and hear the Christmas story in word and song.

RIVER CAFÉ The next River Cafe takes place in the Church hall on Wednesday 9th December from 2pm to 3.30pm. Whether you’ve joined us before, or not, why not drop in for some tea, coffee, home baking and the all important chat? We look forward to welcoming you there.

A Place at the Table Many thanks to those who have already handed in donations for this project, to assist the National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon support refugees from Syria in neighbouring countries, and displaced people within Syria. All the money collected will be sent off during the week beginning 14th December, so all donations should be put in the offering plate (in an envelope clearly marked A Place at the Table) by Sunday 13th December. Information packs are still available on the table at the back of the Church, if you want to find out about different ways of raising money, but a straightforward donation is equally acceptable.

GUILD Monday 7th December is our last meeting for 2015 and we are going to the Conon Hotel for lunch. If you haven’t already put your name down for that, please see Pat Gillanders who will give all the details. Really looking forward to this fellowship together.
