Our Praise :  :  Normally at our morning services the items of Praise are taken from Church Hymnary Third Edition (CH) and those at evening services are taken from Mission Praise (MP).

If you feel more comfortable sitting during the items of praise, please feel free to do so.

Crèche:    There is a crèche in the Church Hall behind the Church if anyone wishes to leave their children there during the morning service.

 

Sunday School & Youth Fellowship

The groups meet every Sunday during the school term.   Sunday School meets initially in the Church before moving to the Church Hall.   

The Ladies’ Bible Study Group meets in the Church Hall on Tuesdays from 10.30 am to 12.00 noon.   All ladies welcome.

The Prayer Fellowship meets in the Manse at 7.00 pm each Tuesday evening.   All are welcome to attend.

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.

Life & Work : Subscribers to Life and Work should note that the annual fee of £31.20 is now due.  Cheques or cash should be given to Morna MacLaren. 

FreeWill Offering Envelopes :  Please see Bill Marshall if you have not already received your envelopes for 2019.

Anyone who would wish to join the scheme and / or link their givings to Gift Aid should also see Bill.

Retiral OfferingA Retiral Offering will be taken at both services

on Sunday 27 January.   This collection will go towards the costs of major projects in our church buildings.

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 21 April.

 

Church Magazine :  The first 2019 edition of our magazine is scheduled for issue prior to Easter (21 April).

As this will be the first magazine produced by our new magazine team we would ask for the cooperation and assistance of the congregation in providing appropriate material for it.

The theme for this edition will, not surprisingly, be SPRING / EASTER and we would ask for articles on thoughts of Spring ; memories of Easter past ; favourite hymns ; poetry ( famous or your own) etc.

It would be appreciated if articles could be typed and either placed in the Magazine Folder in the Vestibule or, preferably, emailed to the editor at wwm74marl@hotmail.com     Handwritten articles can still be placed in the folder.

 

The schedule for the production will be :-

January to first week in March  -  submission of articles

Second week in March to End of March  -  preparation and proofreading of         

                                Magazine

First week in April  -  printing of magazine

Sunday 8 April  -  issue of magazine to distributors

We hope that, with your help, we can continue the high standards set previously by our former editors and teams.
