Crochet Every Day in November Challenge

The Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) have challenged crocheters across the nation (and further away!) to crochet every day in November to raise funds. Aliet Ray has taken up the call to crochet a warm winter cowl. Will you support her by donating a small amount towards her goal of £150.00 and perhaps be the winner of the Colours of Clynder Cowl?

Crochet Every Day website for more information.

Her JustGiving page is: Hooked in Clynder (please do leave your name to go into the draw for the cowl) or contact her on for more information. Or see notice at the back of the church.

Home Start Lomond

Laura Eales of Home Start Lomond is seeking volunteers to provide personal and individualised support to local families. Please see notice at the back of church if you would like to help

Eco Congregation Thought for the Week

(Correction to last week’s thought!)

Try using an AIR FRYER. Smaller than your oven, it is therefore more energy efficient and environmentally friendly. A good cooking appliance to use if you want to minimise electricity bills.
