Church Magazine : The next edition of our magazine is due to be issued for Easter which is very early this year, falling on Sunday 27 March.
We need articles about your memories of Easter in your past, your thoughts on how it is celebrated today, your favourite hymns, poems, humorous stories, etc.
Please submit your items as soon as possible to enable an early start to be made on this edition. Items may be left in the folder in the Front Vestibule or, preferably, emailed to Trevor Dee at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pastoral Visits : The Minister asks that he would be kept informed of any member of the congregation who is ill, in hospital or would welcome a visit from him.
New Communicant Members : Any Adherent who would wish to become a full communicant member of the church should speak to the Minister at the end of the service or contact him by telephone. We would dearly love to see more Adherents take up full communicant membership of the church and take Communion on 27 March.
Retiral Offering : A Retiral Offering will be taken at both services on Sunday 31 January. This collection will go towards the costs of major projects in our church buildings.
Sunday School : Shift patterns and workload associated with full time employment is putting a great strain on the existing Sunday School leaders regarding the teaching of the children on Sunday mornings. If at least two volunteers were to come forward to become involved this would ease these difficulties. It would be expected that volunteers would only need to teach the children on one week out of four.
The Christian education of our younger members is an essential part of their learning experiences and we hope that this call will be answered.
Further information on what is required can be obtained from Kay MacKinnon.
