Christian Aid Events in May 2017

Christian Aid Week Volunteers are needed to deliver (11th-14th May) and to collect (14th-20th May) Christian Aid envelopes door to door.  We’ve managed to cover our district every year so far and we hope to do so again this year.  The more of you who volunteer, the easier this task will be for everyone. Any questions?  Please see Jill Rennie or Janice Colgan.

Stonelaw’s Christian Aid Big Brekkie/Brunch Sunday 14th May, after the morning service.  Details to follow; please see Jennifer Menzies or Therese Reid.

Coffee Morning for The Well – 18th March

Last year we were delighted at your response to the Coffee Morning we ran to raise funds for The Well.  A total of £600 was raised – which was so much appreciated by everyone at The Well.  (If you don’t know about this wonderful organization, a multi-cultural resource centre in Govanhill, then find out more at: www.thewell.org.uk.)  So, we’ve decided to do the same again.  Please come along on Saturday 18th March from 10:30 – 12:30. You will find a very warm welcome.  Tickets, priced £2.50 for adults and £1 for children are available from members of the NMT.

So that we can provide a great selection of home baking – to eat, and to buy and take away, we would really appreciate it if members of the congregation could help us by making donations of home baking.  Bring it along on the Saturday morning when you come to the Coffee Morning or hand it in before then – the NMT will be there from 9:30 am.

Thank you again for your support; without you, organisations like the Lodging House Mission and The Well would not be able to do their valuable work.
