The Kirk Session meets on Monday 12thNovember at 7.30pm for Ordinary Business.  Can elders please make sure the date is in their diaries as we are trying to avoid lists of intimations next Sunday – Remembrance.

Indeed next Sunday is Remembrance.  Our service commences at the normal time of 10.30am.  We look forward to participation from Piper Roddy Shanks as well as Dynamica Brass band who will be leading us in some of our hymn singing.  Of course our organist and choir will still be participating. In order to complete a Season of Remembrance for the end of WW1 a short prayer service will be held in our church at 6.30pm, which will conclude at 7pm with Last Post, Reveille and the ringing of our church bells. A retiring collection in support of Poppy Appeal Scotland will be available to you.

The Men’s Fellowship meet this Friday 9thNovember for their fortnightly games night.

A big thank you to all who prepared craft items or baking for sale at yesterday’s Craft Sale. The event raised £ ….       for church funds.

Come Sunday 18thNovember I will be joining the congregation at Moncreiff Church as they celebrate 175 years since the founding of the congregation and 60 years in their current location at Calderwood.  Mr Mark Williams will be leading worship here that day.

Also on Sunday 18thNovember at 3pm an inter-faith gathering is being held in Greenhills Church at 3pm.  It is a time of coming together to meet those in our community whose culture and faith may differ from our own and to build bridges.  As we emerge from a season of Remembrance there are few things we could do that might be more valuable than this.
