INTIMATIONS 23rd December 2018
Please pray for families and children also people living alone who can find Christmas very difficult and lonely.
Fighting has continued to escalate in Mali, where 70,000 people have been forced to leave their homes. Around half of these have little or no access to food. Please pray for stability in the region.
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
