Newsletter 17th June - NOTE - we take a break over the summer



The Newsletter will not be published during July and August so if you know of anything going on over this period that you wish posted please inform the editor by 22 June.


Pastoral Care

If you know of anyone who is in hospital or would appreciate a card or a visit, please let a member of our Pastoral Care Team know. (Jean Morrison, Val Ramshaw, Mary Taylor, Maureen McLellan - 01224 582491)


Messy Church dates

July, August- no Messy Church. Next one in September, when the schools are back.


Any volunteers to help with craft activities or the catering would be very welcome.  Please see Kerry Hendriksen, or there is a catering rota by the door.


Finzean House Open Garden

Once again Donald and Catriona Farquharson will kindly open their garden to the public on Sunday 17th June 2-5pm.  60% of the proceeds will go to the Forget-me-not Club, with the rest going to charities supported by the Scottish Open Garden Scheme.  If you are able to bake and/or help at this event please add your name to the list in the church hallway or see Sheena. Your support for this event is much appreciated.

The  gathering  of  companions



build  bridges

that  make  life  strong;



tell  stories

that  make  life  long;



sing  songs

and  make  lives  that  belong.
