Winter Wonderland is our annual fundraising event for the church charities. The Inner Wheel run a cafe for the event. There will be lots of stalls in the Parish Hall for your Christmas shopping plus friendly Alpacas on the Soaperie Gardens.

Our next monthly collection will be a week on Tuesday, 12th November, 9 - 9.30am, at Greyfriars House, Kirkcudbright.
As I mentioned in my last email, our supplies have recently been significantly depleted and for this collection we would welcome contributions of all foodstuffs and toiletries (except tea and toothpaste, of which we have plenty!)
Looking ahead, at the December collection we make up special Christmas boxes for referred families and individuals. As well as basic foodstuffs, these include some seasonal food treats and small gifts for adults and children. Any donations of non-perishable items can be made at this collection, but perishable items should be delivered on 10th December, as these boxes are sent out the week before Christmas, so we need to be careful with use-by dates.
Growth in Prayer and Reflective Living: is being held in St. John’s Dumfries from October 2019 to May 2020. One of the organisers and course tutors is Rachel Inglis; details can be obtained from her or one of the leaflets available in Greyfriars. This personal spiritual development is highly recommended.
