Church News Sunday 10th April

SUNDAY CLUB AND FYF Sunday Club and FYF are on holiday and return next Sunday 17th April. As always there is a Crèche for pre-school children each Sunday morning.

PRAYER GROUP The Prayer Group meets on Wednesday 13th April at 10.00am in the small hall.

PASTORAL CARE TEAM If you need our help, please contact either your elder or the coordinator, Janette Steele (01349 861591), and we will try our very best to be of assistance. Remember to contact the Team as quickly as possible to allow arrangements to be made.

LADIES BIBLE STUDY The group are using the World Day of Prayer material “Receive children, receive me”. This coming Wednesday, 13th April, we will read Mark 5: 35-43 which gives the report of the raising of Jairus’ daughter. We meet in the Church Hall at 1.30pm for approximately one hour. These studies have been the starting point of very interesting and very wide-ranging discussions. I’m sure we would love to include many more ladies. So do come along if at all possible.

RIVER CAFÉ The next River Cafe takes place in the Church hall on Wednesday 13th April from 2pm-3.30pm. Whether you’ve been before, or not, we look forward to welcoming you there for some tea or coffee, home baking and the all important chat. Why not join us?

HIGHLAND FOODBANK Thank you to all who participated in the Foodbank Appeal “40PENCEFOR40DAYS”. The sum of £170 has been sent to Blythswood Care (Foodbank) to help feed people in crisis. Once again a very generous donation. Donations of food are always very welcome and can be left in the basket in the Church annex.

USED STAMPS 2016 Stamp Appeal: Othara Eco-spirituality Centre, South India. This year the Stamp Project will support the Church of South India’s (CSI) eco-spirituality centre, Othara, near Kerala. This is a unique place where groups can come to learn about the environment, caring for creation and stewardship of the earth. Funds raised by the appeal will support some of their ecological innovations including harvesting and re-use of rainwater, the establishment of a biogas plant to power the kitchens and the development of a small dairy and chicken farm for native breeds.

A huge thank you to everyone who collected stamps last year! £3511 was raised for the Church of Scotland HIV Programme. A box for your used stamps is in the annex.

PASTORAL DUTIES Rev’d Graham can be contacted on 861275 if required for any Pastoral duties.
