Welcome to Cupar Old Parish Church

INTIMATIONS        16th December 2018

Prayer 

Please pray for people living in internally displaced camps in Iraq whose living conditions have been worsened by torrential rainfall. 

Defibrillator  Update: The defibrillator  has been purchased. It may take some time for it to be fitted (but hopefully not too long) as the Parish Centre is in a conservation area but this is in hand. The very successful fundraising total was £2,827.25. The balance of £1,527.25 has been put in a separate account by the treasurer for the upkeep of it. Thank you once again for your donations and support.

Postage Stamps: Remember to save all used postage stamps and put them in the little post box on the left hand side of the church vestibule. This year the Church of Scotland’s World Mission Council Stamp Appeal supports centres for young people with learning difficulties in the Ukraine
