The weekly offering envelopes for the year 02 April 2017 to 25 March 2018 are now available. Should anyone who does not already receive ‘green envelopes’ and wishes to make a commitment to making a regular donation in this way please contact the Gift Aid Treasurer.
If you pay TAX you can (if you have not already done so) boost your donation by 25p for every £1 donated by completing a Gift Aid Declaration form. If you would like a form please contact the Gift Aid Treasurer.
For many years we have conducted a door-to-door collection in support of Christain Aid. Several people who willingly gave time to deliver and collect envelopes are no longer able to do this. So this year we have an urgent need for people to volunteer to distribute and collect envelopes. Will you help?
If you are able to play a part in ensuring this can be an ongoing part of our mission please contact the session clerk.
For those of you who do not intend to walk, but would like to be involved on the day the Walk Organisers are looking for volunteers who would be willing to:-
a). Marshal at stages during the walk
b). Register walkers on the morning of the walk
c). Man the refreshment stations at Lauder School and Bluecairn.
If you feel you would like to take part in any of these ways please let the organisers know
Jane Thomson, our publicity officer, asks that any Church items for publication in the Southern Reporter District News section are with her by 9.00am each Monday.
There are boxes in the foyer of Channelkirk and Lauder Churches to enable anyone to contribute. Donations will be taken to the distribution centre in Galashiels. There is a growing need for food parcels, about 26 parcels go out every week. Dried and non-perishable donations only, please. See posters for further information or phone Isobel Petrie or Sheila Lowe.
All pastoral matters should be passed to the Minister, Rev Rae Clark or the Session Clerk, Billy Anderson.
