Minister's Message

It is a real pleasure and privilege to be able to write those words and to take time to share a few thoughts with you.


If you are keen to help with publicity please speak to Rae

Study/discussion groups will meet at 2pm and 7pm to continue with the theme ‘Encountering God in ordinary places’.   Please feel free to come along to either session and join in the discussion.    

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.

Ian and Christine thank everyone who contributed to the Burns Supper last Friday: The Lodge, Carfraemill for their excellent meal and service, the top table guests, and the 90 people who came along. The magnificent sum of £1,340.00 was raised and will be shared between Blythswood Care and our two Church Charities for 2016 (Open Doors and the Parish Fund).

It’s nearly time for us to get together and consider what we could be doing in future.  It’s vital that we identify what it is that God wants us to be doing, so please pray that God will guide us through this whole exciting process.  It would be helpful if you could put the dates in your diary now, so that as many people as possible can come along and get involved.
