Due to the heavy snowfalls and the snowdrifts that are covering the entrance and emergency exits, it has been decided to cancel the morning Service this Sunday 4 March. This is to ensure the health and safety of our congregation.
Unfortunately, due to illness and other unforeseen circumstances, the Bring & Buy Sale scheduled for 28 October 2017 has had to be postponed.
Hopefully this will be able to be rescheduled at a later date. I hope this hasn’t caused any inconvenience.
Abronhill Church will be holding a monthly Tearoom organised by the Hospitality Group. This will take place on the first Monday of each month, beginning in October and is from 12 noon till 2pm. Soup, Sandwiches and Toasties will be available along with Tea, Coffee and Cakes. Come along and meet with friends and enjoy a tasty lunch.
Nan McCabe, Marjory Williamson and friends will be hosting an evening of music, memories and merriment in the Church Hall on Saturday 7 October at 7pm in aid of Dr. Graham’s Home. Tickets cost £3 and can be bought from Nan & John Manson. Nan & Marjory will also be doing a Sponsored Walk in Israel in January and donations towards this will be gratefully received at any time.
Abronhill Church will be holding a Bring & Buy sale in the Church Hall on Saturday 28 October 2017 at 12 noon. Donations can be made between now and 27 October. Donations should be in a new or nearly new condition. Unfortunately no Bric-a-brac or second hand furniture can be accepted. Electrical goods must be new and in their packaging and will be purchased at the buyer’s responsibility. Items will be priced per table at £1, £2, £3, etc. so there will be no confusion about priced goods. Any goods not sold will be donated to a local charity shop unless stated otherwise and goods for return can be picked up by 3pm on the day. The tea room will also be open during the sale with tea/coffee/biscuits & perhaps cake available. If any other information is required or if you wish to help, please contact Margaret Naismith on 01236 720164.
