CHRISTIAN AID WEEK this year is from 14th-20th May. Volunteers are needed to fulfil our target of visiting every home within the parish to carry out door to door collections. If you would like to be a collector, please come to the front of the church or Fraser Hall following the service on 14th May where you will receive an envelope containing all you will need to collect within your allocated district. Donations should be returned to the church on Friday 19th May between 7pm and 9pm, or on Tuesday 23rd May between 7pm and 8pm. Volunteers are also required to count the donations on these evenings. Please consider supporting Christian Aid either by collecting or by helping with the count. There will be a ‘Big Brekkie’ event following the morning service on 14/5/17 when you will be able to enjoy a bacon roll and pancakes with your tea or coffee. A donation to Christian Aid would be greatly appreciated. This was a great success last year and we hope you enjoy it once again. Your support during Christian Aid week will be invaluable and will make a difference to those in greatest need throughout the world. Mark Allan 638 3916.
