Good morning and welcome to Worship. May we all know God’s blessing as we worship together. If you are a visitor, please take our good wishes back to your own congregation on your return home.
We are very happy to welcome Liz Clarke to leads our worship today.
Coffee Morning Leaders and Helpers
In order for the coffee mornings to continue, we need more team leaders and helpers. More leaders mean that they have less coffee mornings to prepare for. The church needs your help. Thanks to the Guild helping, we can do the monthly coffee mornings during the winter. However, the coffee mornings will not be able to continue if we don’t get help. Apart from the money these raise for church funds, the coffee mornings are a wonderful community event loved by everyone.
Please contact Vivienne Haigh 600092 or Robert Marr 600058.
Messy Church will begin on 11th October. Families are invited to come along to enjoy some fun, stories, crafts and food in Lamlash Church. WATCH THIS SPACE!
BLYTHESWOOD CHRISTMAS SHOEBOX APPEAL· Empty shoeboxes are available on pew at Cradle Rolls and leaflets are available in the vestibule. Also in the vestibule is a box for individual donations which are not complete boxes. Please support this. It brings so much Christmas joy and hope to old and young who are otherwise forgotten. The closing date for boxes or donations is 14th October.
Arran Co-ops are launching FOODSHARE. Lily is looking for a few folk who want to be part of this Pastoral Care outreach. Free food, including fruit and vegetables, will be available to any registered group. This food would otherwise be binned and that is such a waste. The food collected will then be available from the church to anyone who needs it. This is a big commitment but can we stand back knowing food is going to waste when so people could benefit? If this intimation doesn’t spur you to speak to Lily then read MATTHEW 35 verses 31 – 46 and JAMES 2 verses 14 -19. Please volunteer because you care and not because you feel guilty!!
The church prayer group has resumed after the summer break and is currently meeting at 3pm on Mondays. We will be at Betty Dick’s home ‘Kilspindie’ at top of Margnaheglish Road. It would be great to see more people join us so do come along if able. You will be very welcome.
Lily is going on holiday on Sunday 30th September. Liz Clarke is leading worship and available for pastoral cover until 9th October. Please contact Ian on 600 382 for any assistance needed.
