Good morning and welcome to worship.
May we know God’s blessing as we worship together.
Today, we are delighted to welcome Jack Harris and his family and friends as we celebrate his Baptism this morning.
If you are a visitor, please take our good wishes back to your own congregation on your return home.
Each Sunday before worship, there is the opportunity to join together in the lesser hall for a short time of prayer beginning at 10.45 am. If you have any prayer request please speak to Aileen.
Today we celebrate The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. All who love the Lord are invited to share this special time together.
Come, for all things are ready!
‘Tis a banquet of love;
Here’s a free invitation
from the Master above.
Come, for all things are ready!
Heaven’s bounty is spread;
Take the cup of salvation,
take the life-giving bread.
Thank you to everyone who donated to Christian Aid and to all who helped make the coffee morning so successful.
Together we have raised £679 which is £100 more than last year. A wonderful effort which will make a huge difference to displaced people living in fear and battling the elements with
very little shelter.
All Guild members are thanked for making Laigh Kirk Guild’s visit on the 29th May such a success. It was a great
afternoon and enjoyed by all. The Laigh Kirk Guild’s lovely gift of a Kilmarnock Willow will be planted in the church garden and will remind us of the fellowship we share through our Lord.
There will be a Coffee Morning in the church hall (behind the church) on Wednesday from 10-15 to 12 noon. All are welcome to come along for a ” cuppa ” and a chat with friends old and new. There will be the usual stalls.
There will be an organ recital on 10th June at 3 pm, given by the highly esteemed organist Douglas Bruce. This very high-quality event is to be commended, so please
publicise this as much as possible, and come along with friends. Entry is £5 at the door. All proceeds are donated to the church by Douglas to help maintain the organ.
The church will be open for visitors from 10 am to noon on weekdays during the months of July and August. Volunteers are required to be in church at those times. It is a pleasant and relaxing undertaking, and the more volunteers, the less frequent the duty. If you can help, contact David Oakes (600279).
Lily will be on holiday 5th – 13th June. Jean Hunter will be available for funerals. Aileen Brookens will cover other pastoral needs and lead worship on 10th June.
Everyone is invited to meet the delegation from Malawi in Brodick Church hall for tea and coffee on Monday 11th June
at 3.15 pm. Come along and hear what God is doing through Malala Presbytery who are twinned with Ardrossan Presbytery .
The Fete this year is on 23rd June, using the church, church hall and there will be homebaking and teas, but we need other ideas and input from anyone who can help.
This is an opportunity to raise a lot of money and to create a pleasant and enjoyable occasion. We also need someone to co-ordinate all of this (with help). Please talk to Lily or any of the Kirk Session. This should be a big occasion in every way,but it will only be so if we all ‘muck in’. We can start by coming to a ‘ideas’ meeting in the Church Hall at 2pm
on Thursday 7th May.
