KIRK SESSION The Kirk Session will meet at 7.00pm on Thursday 19th January in the Church hall. Minutes and agendas are available to uplift now. Elders who have elected to receive them by email should now have them.

EVENING SERVICES The Kirk Session have decided that due to declining numbers and the possibility of bad weather in the coming months there will be NO Sunday Evening Services in January and February 2017. The Kirk Session will review this decision in the New Year with regards to Sunday Evening Services from March 2017 onwards.

USED STAMPS As you attack the big clear-up after Christmas and New Year, please remember to save any used stamps for the World Mission Council appeal. Stamps must be intact, including perforations. It is helpful if stamps are trimmed, leaving half an inch of envelope all round where possible, and separated into UK and foreign stamps.
