If you can give of your time in any way to help, it would be most appreciated and you don’t need to be a flower arranger. This is a wonderful opportunity to work together in God’s name and to appreciate the beauty of his world. If you have any small baskets you could spare these would be most appreciated. The flowers will be uplifted following the morning service for distribution. Contact Jeannette Cameron 01463 870416 should you wish further information.

CROSSREACH The CrossReach Calendar sample is to hand for Christmas. Since we need to place an order soon to allow folk to post abroad more cheaply, there is a sheet at the back of the Church and in the Church Hall so that you can order. No money required until we receive the order. This year there are also samples of the cards you can order from the catalogue. These samples and the catalogues will be in the Church Hall after the service. All monies received from the sale of these items help the Social Care Work of the Church of Scotland to provide care for the most vulnerable in our society. Your support is much appreciated.

PASTORAL DUTIES Rev’d Stephen Macdonald can be contacted on 864273 if required for any Pastoral duties.
