Sharing Faith On the four Thursdays in September we are going to explore ways in which we can each share with people, the difference that following Jesus makes in our lives. This Mission and Discipleship course is informal, relaxed and involves a combination of bible study and group discussion. We will meet in the Session Room from 7:308:30pm, if you have any questions please speak to Gary Noonan.

The Creche are urgently seeking more volunteers to join the creche rota during the first service on Sunday mornings, and during the summer services. Currently there are only 3 volunteers. If you are interested in helping out please contact Lynda Maw on 07913413572 or email lynda.maw@gmail.com

HELPING HANDS  Our Helping Hands (new Odd Job scheme) is now up and running and we look forward to hearing how we can be of help to you.  No payment is necessary for any work done.  However, if you feel you have to give something, just drop it into the offering bag.  Full details are in the Newsletter.  Please contact Bill Cormie on 442471.

EMPTY SHOEBOXES – ANY SIZE OR STYLE.  If you have any you would like to donate they would be gratefully received.  We are building up a supply for the Christmas shoe box appeal as last Christmas we actually struggled to obtain them without having to purchase them from the charity itself.  We will be collecting them throughout the year so please bring them along to church for us to collect.  Thanks in anticipation,  Lynda and Steve Maw.

New Residents to the Parish’ leaflet.  In place of the box for names for new residents we now have leaflets at both doors. If you are aware of any new neighbours would you please take one of these leaflets and either drop through their letter box or call with this leaflet.
