Other Notices for the week 21st – 28 January 2018 HELENSBURGH AND ROSNEATH FOOD BANK: Thank you for all your contributions before Christmas. In this cold weather especially, the need continues for tinned and packaged goods (but no perishable food). Last year 2,447 individuals were supported.

If not, goods can be left in the box at the back of the church and will then be delivered to the food bank. Thank you again.

Kevin and I thought it might be a good idea to reflect the churches year on the web site, by using the appropriate colours in our header. We are just now entering Epiphany for which the colour of vestments and alter cloths are green. You will see a further change when we enter Lent. Do you like the idea? Let us know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Purchasing a Christmas gift for the Edinburgh Care Shelter could help […]
