Friday Fling - we urgently need more helpers at the Friday Fling which is held every 2 weeks in the OAP Hall on a Friday from 2pm to 4pm.  You do not need to be a dancer to help at this very worthwhile club and we would hate to see the club fold because of the lack of a few volunteers.  Please speak to Jean Alexander or Barbara Ann.

Refreshment Rota - volunteers are needed and this list is located in the social area.

Breakfast Church and Evening Services - we are looking for various people to offer their services to make breakfast or the evening meals for approximately 25 people or so at each of these events and then we would like some volunteers to lead the worship in thses services also.  Speak to Barbara Ann and see the sign up sheet in the social area please?

Bookstall - the notice is way out of date.  Can you just say new Christian books, cards,  and much more plus FairTrade goods all available in the reception area.

Time and Talents Wish Board and Money - what we need wish board  - you will see in the church today and every Sunday two wish boards and these boards will be updated on a weekly basis.  There are many bits and pieces that are needed completed in the church however many of our members know nothing about it and we often hear ‘oh I could have done that’ or ‘oh I could have helped with that’ or ‘oh why didn’t you ask me?’ or ‘if only I had known!’  Additionally, due to our renovations there are lots of things that we would like to complete and add to our church to beautify it and to make life easier all round.  We are also starting new ventures in the coming months and are needing supplies bought for that.  Please take a look at both Wish Boards and if you feel you can help with any we ask that you take the card from the board, write your name on it and then hand it to Barbara Ann, Lexi, Margaret Scrimgeour or Bill.  Thank You.

10p Collection - Keep your 10p pieces coming in as we still have quite a distance to cover.

Fairtrade Goods - have a look!  Homemade Jam £2 & £1.50

Bible Readings for next week


Prayers for the coming week - as our minister is in Israel this week we think of the continiuing problems in Israel and Palestine and pray for peace in that area.  We pray for all the organisations and workers in those areas who are working so hard to bring about reconciliation and hope through God’s love.
