News and Notices - Sunday 19 January

  1. The St Thomas’s Cleaning Teams are joining together next Thursday, 23rd January from 9.20 am to 12 am for our January Big Clean. We will be very pleased to welcome volunteers with dusters!  We are entering into our fourth year of cleaning with teams and it has worked very well.  However during that time five volunteers have left for various reasons and so we are badly needing more people to join a us and share the load.  As long as we have four teams each team is only required to clean three times a year and it’s very satisfying to know that our Church is as spick and span as we can make it!
  2. Tarland are hosting the World Day of Prayer this year on the 7th March at 7 pm. The booklets will be out shortly and we will be providing readers as usual.
  3. Aboyne churches are planning a big tea party in the Victory Hall during Christian Aid week (which we believe (from Google) is 11th -17th May).  A planning meeting has been arranged on Tuesday 1st April at 2.30 pm at 18 Golf Place Aboyne.  The idea is for tea and sponge-cakes and cakes for sale. There will also be a children's corner with toys, squash and biscuits.  Tickets will be on sale before hand at £3 each with children under 11 free.  Further details will be discussed at the above meeting and it would be appreciated if someone from St Thomas' could go along.
