Donations Wanted

The Windows Team is going to run a tombola stall at the Trinity Community Gala on Sunday 25th August to raise money for the next phase of the windows work.

Sticking with the glass theme, we’re looking for donations of glass-related goodies: bottles (wine, beer, etc.), jars (chutney, jam, sweeties), glassware — use your imagination!

We’ll have a box at the front door of the church for donations to be dropped off from 2nd June onwards.

Thanks for your continued support.

***************

There is no midweek Communion in July and August.

“Allsorts of Critters” will fill the church this summer as part of our fourth Kirk & Breakfast season which begins with a short time of worship at 9.30am in the sanctuary and continues with breakfast in the New Hall. The children will hear animal stories from the Bible and how and why we care about them. As part of this venture, each Sunday, new groups of animals (of the water, air and land) will appear around the church. We hope you will enjoy the display.

The minister is on holiday from 5th July and will be back on Friday 26th July. Rev. Dr John Cowie, Stockbridge Parish Church, will cover funerals (please contact the church office for details). Christine Shepherd, Pastoral Care Convener, will cover pastoral emergency calls pastoral@wardie.org.uk or Christine Shepherd 552 2546.

Picnic in the Meadows: Saturday 2nd July. The Church of Scotland Sacred Heart in Lauriston Street does not have a garden. So they asked the council for a plot on the Meadows. On July 20th we are invited to bring our own picnics and see the very successful Community Garden and wildflower plot nearby to hear how it evolved. Meet at 12.00 at the garden near the tennis courts and toddler playground at the east end of the Meadows. Any further information, ask Heather McHaffie, 552 5026.

Wardie Book of Remembrance: Once again, our Book of Remembrance will be going to the calligrapher to have names added over the Summer. If you would like to have a name added please contact Kate Clegg 552 2596. The cost is £20.

Church Office refurbishment: As the office is being refurbished all the existing furniture is for sale. Please speak to Catriona in the office for details, on 551 3847, or email: churchoffice@wardie.org.uk.
