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
will remain in place until Sunday 30 November 2014.
Welcome to church – it is good to have you here. Today the Rev
David Laing will be leading worship.
We are a church
