Mission partners.  Sarah, James and Amelia Wilson are recovering from a very busy Christmas.  Please pray for Sarah’s dad here in Scotland.  He has cancer which is spreading.  Pray for the Wilson’s particularly as it is hard to be far from family when things like this happen.  

New rotas have been done for Bible reading, prayers, PowerPoint, sound and making the teas and coffees.  If you have not received a rota that you believe you are on please ask Jane Fucella.  We hope to soon also have a rota for setting up the hall for services and coffee.   Postage stamps   Please remember to save your postage stamps from the Christmas cards and other mail you receive and put them into one of the boxes in St Mary’s Hall or the Gillespie Centre. Thank you.  Guide Thinking Day Service will be held on Sunday 25th February in Church.  No Sunday Club that day.Furniture moving - would you be willing to come early for church on a rota basis and help set up the chairs in St Mary’s Hall.  Once we are back in the church we would also like a rota of people willing to come in early and set up the chairs and tables for coffee after the service.  If you can help please speak to Cameron Sutherland.
