Livings Stones, our Youth Group, kicks off this evening (09/09/18) for a new session with a barbeque at the church from 7pm
On Sunday 2nd Sept., Our Clerk of Session read a letter to the congregation which was written to the Clerk of the General Assembly from our Kirk Session. Some people indicated they were unable to hear the full text and so a copy of this letter is available on the notice board at the rear of the church.
On August 18th during National Heritage Week, there will be an event at St. Crispin’s Cell just north of Greystones. At 3pm that day there are plans to have an ecumenical choir perform a number of pieces. If you are interested in taking part, please speak to Gary.
On Thursday 9th of August there will be a flower arranging demonstration from Rodney who is visiting with us at the moment – this will take place in the hall @ 7:30, all welcome.
Thursday this week (2nd) is our Working Men’s Breakfast @ 7:30 in Coffee Delights
Don’t forget our Holiday Bible Club starts tomorrow!
Today we had another great song from Deborah McDowell at the end of our service – have a listen:
Our spring clean-up never happened this year due to, well, the lack of spring! We seemed to go straight from Winter to Summer. As a result, the church grounds have got very overgrown and it would be fantastic if we could do something about it before our Holiday Bible Club starts in 10-days time. A clean-up evening has been set for next Wednesday, July 25th, commencing at 6pm and we would love to see as many people as possible out to help – feel free to come along then or later, and just stay as long as want. The plan is to have a fish & chip supper together when all the work is done!
In other news, Matthew (Matt) Williams has been appointed as our part-time youth-worker. Matt will be working a limited number of hours per week, mainly around Sunday services and Living Stones – Welcome Matt!
Yes, we did skip a week, some of us took a holiday last week..

Our Holiday Bible Club starts on July 30th. You can register in advance on our website. We look forward to welcoming lots of children as well as teams from Moody and Cahaba Park to help with running the club.
The latest edition of Vox magazine is now available – you can pick up a copy in the hall or at the church door.
Gary is still away this week but will be back on Sunday 8th for our Communion Service
We were short of a pianist today and this could become a regular issue with Gary convening for the Arklow vacancy. If you know of anyone who would be able to help out on an occasional basis, please speak to Gary, Brian or Craig. Anyone with Piano or Organ skills would be great!
There is no retired-men’s breakfast until September but the working-men’s breakfast is this Thursday @ 7:30 in Coffee Delights on the Southern Cross road.
There is no Praise Service tonight – the next one is at the end of the summer. Contrary to previous announcements, although we are moving this to the last Sunday of the month, the next service will be on the first Sunday in September and the second will be on the last Sunday in September
