A Very Happy New Year to each and every one of you - full of God’s Grace and Blessing.My sincere thanks for so much kindness shown to me over the Christmas period.

PILGRIMAGE - We are currently investigating the possibility of a parish pilgrimage to Iona Abbey, which would include two night's accommodation on the Isle of Mull, in August 2020. The cost would be approximately £350 and if preferred a payment plan can be arranged in the months prior to the pilgrimage. The cost includes accommodation, breakfast and evening meals, the hire of a coach and both entrance to and a guided tour of Iona Abbey. If you would be interested in going, please add your name to the list in the church hall, or email Callum on

COLLECTIONS The Offertory Collection last weekend realised £457.74 and the Second Collection £100.66, grateful thanks to all donors. Also, very many thanks to the anonymous donor for the most generous gift of £350 for the Christmas decoration of the church.  There will be a Special Collection today for the work of Justice and Peace.

VOLUNTEERS’ ROTA – The new six months rota for those who undertake voluntary duties in the parish is available in the hall.

200 CLUB – renewal of membership of the 200 Club (£13 per number) is now due.
