We are delighted to welcome Mrs Sharon MacLeod to lead our worship today.
The Kirk Session meets on 11th March at 2pm in the church hall.
You may be aware that Robert Marr ‘signed up’ as Treasurer for three years, and his time is up and we are very grateful for the hard work he has done, along with Lindsey. Added to that is the fact that they intend to leave Arran for pastures new. The bottom line is that we are looking for a new Treasurer. Any one who has any suitable/interested contacts is asked to speak to Ian Watt
The Guild meets on Tuesday 5th March at 2pm in the church hall. The speaker is Mrs Beverley Millar. All are welcome.
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.
The SU Holiday Club runs from 1st April until 5th April, and it would be appreciated if anyone is able to help on any of these dates from 10am until 12 noon, for dealing with juice and crisps any other ’background’ but important tasks. This would not involve PVG (Safeguarding) registration. If you are able to help, please speak to Aileen Brookens or Ian Watt
The Conference which was held in West Kilbride Church on 9th February could not be attended by Arran folk, due to the weather. It is therefore being ‘re-run’ for us by the Presbytery on 9th March in Brodick Church Hall from 11am to 1pm. Tea/coffee will be served from 10.30am. This is about collecting views on the way forward for the Church on Arran, and it provide an excellent opportunity for all church members to have their say. Please give names to Ian Watt as soon as possible.
It’s time to start thinking about the 2019 Fete. Church hall has been booked for 29th June. It seems a long time in the future, but it will creep up on us, so please give some thought to ideas for stalls/activities, and if you can volunteer on the day or help in any way to make this a happy and successful occasion. Our first job will be to appoint a committee!
Coffee Mornings – The important and valuable Coffee Morning set up is in danger of collapsing for want of folk to act as ‘team leaders’. There is support from people willing to bake, but we urgently require team leaders. This is not as onerous as it may sound, but is extremely important. The Coffee Morning is an extremely valuable aspect of the church’s work, in that it a well-used meeting place, as well as being an important source of income for both church and other charitable causes. If you want more information, or have any suggestions, please speak to Vivienne Haigh
