Stewartry Food Bank

Many thanks for your donations. Our food supplies are once again in a healthy state and we will be able to meet the winter demand for food parcels. At the next collection, on 10th December, special Christmas boxes are made up of basic foodstuffs with seasonal gifts and small treats for children and adults. If you wish to wrap a small present would you make clear whether it is for a man or woman. Children's gifts should state the approximate age of the child and, if possible, be unisex as we are not told the gender of the children!
The box for the food bank is under the table in the porch.

A Message from the Primus

I know that many of you have been holding the College of Bishops in prayer as we continue on this discernment process for a new Bishop for you all.
This discernment has been at the forefront of the life and work of the college and we are simply asking for you to continue with your prayers. Please be assured that I will let you all know as soon as I have anything to report.
Blessings
+Mark
