News and Notices, Sunday 15th February

  1. A leaflet on the Bishop’s Lent appeal is at the back of the church. This year it is in support of The Scottish Episcopal Institute, the church’s training agency, which forms people for service as lay readers deacons or priests. There is a particular focus on getting younger people into these forms of ministry. Vittoria of course is Director of Ordinands for the diocese, and we in St Thomas’s have particularly benefitted from the lay ministry of John Lovie and Stuart Yarnell. There are envelopes in the church with a snazzy red heart on for our giving.
  2. We had a lovely service last Sunday with a baptism and confirmation. Many thanks to Bishop Michael Adie who came down from Ballater for the confirmation. Thanks also to Jackie Bailey who sang ‘Panis Angelicus’ (bread of heaven).
