Notices from the congregation…..

  1. Sheila Maxwell is looking for suggestions for hymns for the Evening Songs of Praise in July – if you would like to tell her your favourite three hymns, she would be very pleased. There is a form to fill in at church, or please contact her through us and your favourite might be chosen.
  2. Sue Burgess still has some bags of Malawi rice for sale - £3 per kg bag. Help to educate a child in Malawi by buying a bag.
  3. The next Friendship Group will be held in Church on Wed 18th June at 2.30pm. Come along for tea and a chat. It’s in church, because Sue Burgess and Daphne Laing are starting an Archive Group – to archive church records, books, artefacts and so on, and they will be beginning the process on 18th, and would be very grateful for any help. We have been given guidance by Stuart Donald from the Diocese , and also help from Jean Chalmers, the archivist in Ellon. There is lots to do, and to document. But you are welcome, even if you just want a chat.
