  1. St Thomas's AGM will take place on next Sunday 23rd November at 11.15am in the church.We will have a very short communion service followed by the AGM. The aim is to have finished by 12.30. There is a list of communicant members at the back of church – please check to see if you are on there. If you are not, and would like to be on it, please add your name to the list.  Attached are: the agenda for the AGM, Minutes of the AGM last year, and the text of the Annual Report for the year ending September 2014. (The financial section will be available on the day). If you picked up a copy of these from church last Sunday please bring it along, or download from here and bring along. There are a very few copies still in the church from Sunday.
  2. There will be a diocesan day looking at the use of social media and IT in our churches on the 22nd November in Inverurie. If anyone is interested in attending the day, please contact us.
  3. Please pray for Frances and Pete Edwards from the Ballater congregation on the sudden and unexpected death of their son, Timothy. Please hold them in your prayers as they come to terms with the shock of loss and bereavement. It is likely that Timothy's funeral will be at St Kentigern's in the week beginning the 24th November.
  4. Aboyne Academy Christmas Fair will take place on Saturday 29th November from 10am – 2pm. All are welcome to come.
  5. As part of Vittoria's daily prayer / bible study she uses a book called 'Reflections for Daily Prayer'. This is based on the daily readings for the Common Worship Lectionary, and lists the readings and a daily short reflection on one of the set readings, as well as the prayer for the day. She is about to order next years edition (starts Advent Sunday 2014). The book is priced at £15, and she is happy to order copies for anyone else. If you would like to order a copy, please contact Vittoria.
  6. We are planning on having mulled wine and mince pies after the service on Advent Sunday in church. If you would be willing to bring some mince pies, please let us know.
  7. Dates for the diary: 30th November is Advent Sunday. Both churches will have a communion service on that date. During Advent there will be a mid-week communion at St Thomas' on Tuesday mornings at 10am and a midweek communion at St Kentigern's at 10am.
