As I have mentioned before, our income is being severely reduced as the Church is closed, hall lettings have ceased and Summer fund raising activities have been cancelled.

Thank you to those who have continued to support the Church with their weekly offerings by posting me cheques or leaving envelopes in the mailbox.

However the Bank of Scotland is handling only ‘essential’ transactions to minimise contact between customers and staff, and I am trying to comply their wishes.

It would assist greatly, therefore, if members who normally make regular contributions by Open Plate, FWO or Gift Aid envelopes would change their method of payment to a Bank Standing Order.

By this method, the donation is credited directly to the Church bank account, without the need for me to physically attend the Bank.
The payment can be at whatever interval you decide-weekly, monthly or quarterly etc., can be Gift Aided or Non Gift Aided, and can be terminated at any time you wish.

For those using internet banking, there will probably be an option under ‘Payments’ –‘set up standing order’ and if not on internet banking , then a standing order request form can be obtained from your bank.

If you would like to help by using this method of payment, please contact myself: 

Bill Borthwick: “” or Margo Kerr (Gift Aid Administrator): “” for details of the Kirkcudbright Parish Church bank account.

Thank You.

Bill Borthwick,


Many thanks to all of you who gave over Christian Aid week. Sadly we were not able to stage our usual events and will not know how much the people of Kirkcudbright raised this year.

We look forward to future normality when we will be able to meet again and raise money together.

Stay safe and stay sane

Linda Kinnell
