POSADA RETURNS! A calendar is now available in the hall so that you can choose to take Mary and Joseph into your homes on a date that suits. Mary and Joseph will be welcomed back to the church at our Christingle Service on Christmas Eve. Our aim is to refocus the Advent preparations and is a reminder to us of the many people who are without shelter or care not just in Advent but all the year round. Suggested donations of £5 can be put in an envelope marked Posada and put in the offering plate. Thank you to everyone who bought or donated to the Remembrance Crosses. A donation of £235 was sent to Poppy Scotland. The display in the grounds at the main door of the church th will remain in place until Sunday 30 November 2014.
