The Ardrossan Presbytery Plan Revision Team have arranged to visit Lamlash at 11 a.m. on Saturday 1 October. Can Kirk Session members please let Tony know whether they can attend as soon as possible, so that he can confirm with the convener that the date is acceptable.
There is a congregational board and kirk session meeting at Lamlash Church Hall on Monday 29 August. This is a joint meeting with Kilmory.
The proposed conference on a national stewardship programme scheduled for 30 August is Saltcoats New Trinity has been changed for Arran churches to Saturday 27 August at 11:30 a.m. in Brodick church hall. We need four people to represent Lamlash Church. If you are able to assist, please contact Tony Butcher as soon as possible so that these names can be forwarded to the Presbytery clerk. Please note that, to date, we have had only one person come forward and, having worked hard to get this conference moved to Arran, we would like some volunteers please.
The Ardrossan Presbytery plan revision team have asked if they could meet with the kirk session on Thursday 8 September at 8 p.m. This is a very important meeting and both Gillean and Tony would be most pleased if we could have a full turn out of elders. If you are not able to attend due to prior arrangements would you please let Tony know as soon as possible. But please, if you are able, write this date in your diaries and set it in stone. Thank you.
