Additional Notices

Soul Soup — If you have not already done so please take an envelope for this charity which supports youngsters with mental health problems.  The envelopes & donations should be brought back to the Gift Service on Sunday 23rd December.

Post Box - We once again have the post box sitting in the church vestibule.  This is a free service provided by the Elders, so please use this post box for any Christmas cards that you may be sending to members of the congregation but not for people from outwith the church family since these will not be delivered.  It would also be helpful if you could please put the full  name & address on the envelope to ensure that it is delivered to the correct person.  The post box will be available up to & including Sunday 16th December.

In the corner of the church we have a memory tree.  There are small heart shaped plaques available for you to write your messages of remembrance or your prayer requests, these should then be hung on the tree.  The plaques have kindly been donated by a church member, so they are provided for you to use free of charge.


Food Bank — We once again remind you that dried, tinned & packaged items for the Food Bank are required.  Contributions can be left in the marked box in the church vestibule.
