Announcements Sunday 29 November 2020
Volunteers – We are appealing for volunteers to help with the Easy Worship/Live Streaming on Sunday mornings. No experience required as training will be given and you will only be required to operate on a rota system. It is very urgent because if we can’t get some additional help it may result in these essentials to Worship being unavailable.
Food Bank – Thank you to all who have donated a variety of food stuffs for our local food bank. The next collections before Christmas will be on Tuesday 8 and 22 December from 11 a.m. – 12 noon in the Church car park.
ZOOM BIBLE STUDY FOR POST PRIMARY [QUEST] – ‘Who do you think you are?’ I would love you to join me, Karen Glass via Zoom for Bible Study. Even if you have missed the first two, It will take place on Thursday evenings 7.30-8pm. To register, access consent forms, and provide an email contact of a parent, please contact the church office email@example.com
Presbyterian Herald – We have been advised that publication of the Presbyterian Herald will resume in January 2021. To allow for flexibility and to reduce risk around production and distribution, it has been decided that four seasonal issues will be produced next year instead of ten monthly ones. In light of the fact that many will have already paid for issues not received this year there will be no subscription charges in 2021.
‘Highland Hope’, a book written by Rev Jimmy Lamont is now available to purchase at a cost of £10. If you would like a copy, please contact the church office.

A Prayer for Operation Christmas Child
We thank you Lord for this new day and for the joy it brings,
for daily blessings, loved ones dear and every living thing.
We give you thanks for all that we can share with those in need,
and that you taught us, as you lived, to care in word and deed.
Fill us with compassion Lord, to share with girls and boys
who haven’t heard of God’s good news, those “tidings of great joy!”
As this year’s “shoebox” time draws near, may our choice of gifts display
Your love for each and every child in a simple, caring way.
Toothbrushes, cars, dolls, bars of soap, hats, gloves and clips for hair,
May all these things be packed with love, our efforts fuelled by prayer.
Though we don’t know the recipients, their countries or their names,
our circumstances may be different – but the message is the same.
Bless all who minister in your name and tell the gospel story.
Use the simple gifts we send, And all things for your glory.
In your mercy Lord, hear our prayer.
