Prayer Requests. There is a prayer tree at the front of the church. You are invited to write your request
on a leaf and then hang it on the tree.
Joan Stewart and the family would like to thank all members of the church for their prayers and enquiries
during Dons illness and for the cards flowers and phone calls when he passed away on 11th September,
also those who paid their respects at the Crematorium. £351 has been sent to Pancreatic Cancer UK.
Your kind thoughts have been much appreciated by us all. Sheryll, Duncan and Alastair.
Soup Lunch Many thanks to everyone who supported the October lunch in any way. The amount raised
from the Coffee Morning/Soup Lunch was £105.
TEAM – Together Everyone Achieves More! How true this is where our ‘Top-up-a-Tenner’ fundraising project is concerned. A further £121.00 was paid in last Sunday, making the ‘profit’ to date £368.70.......and
this amount will undoubtedly increase further. As last Sunday, please put brown envelopes into the collection bag today! Thank you.
