Church News Sunday 17th July

SUNDAY CLUB AND FYF Sunday Club and FYF are on holiday and will restart again on Sunday 21st August, however, as always children are welcome in Church over the holidays and we would be delighted to see them. There is a Crèche for pre-school children each Sunday morning

PRAYER GROUP The next prayer meeting will take place on Wednesday 20th July at 10.00am in the small hall.

PASTORAL CARE Call either your elder or the coordinator, Janette Steele (01349 861591), if you need some assistance. We will do our best to help. Please allow time for arrangements to be made if you need to be taken to appointments.

HIGHLAND FOODBANK Please leave your donations of food in the annex of the Church. These are even more necessary during the school holidays when families are not receiving school meals and find it even harder to manage from week to week. Toothpaste and toiletries (baby ones especially) are very welcome too since, if you can’t afford food, you can’t afford these “luxuries”!

Guild This is the last chance to add your name to the list at the back of the Church if you’d like to go on the trip with the Seagull Trust on the morning of August 4th. There are a couple of places left and remember, you can go again if you have enjoyed this trip previously.

CAN YOU HELP? The Conon Gala is to be held on Saturday 27th August from 1 – 4pm in the Village Playing Field, beside the Church. Once again, we plan to serve teas in the Church hall between 1pm and 3.30pm. We also plan to set up 2 gazebos in the Church garden to sell books and plants, so donations of home baking, books and plants would be most welcome. Your help and support for this event would be gratefully appreciated. If you can help in any way, please add your name to the list at the back of the Church, or contact Janet Murray (864024) or Isabel MacDonald (861767). Many thanks.

SUPPLIES FOR EKWENDENI HOSPITAL The Kirk Session has agreed that this year we should collect bandages and gloves for Ekwendeni Hospital. Baskets will be available in the Church vestibule for the rest of July and August to receive donations of:

  • Bandages of all sizes in original wrapping, and with a “use by date” (if applicable) of at least one year ahead
  • Thin gloves (“surgical gloves”) – any size
  • Heavier duty gloves (“Marigold” or equivalent) – any size
