HALL CLEAN UP

The Board had agreed to hire a skip in order to have a thorough clean out of the Church Hall. All organisations who have items stored in the Hall are asked to sort their items.

The skip will be in place for two weeks from 3rd April on the road outside.  It will be locked and arrangements for the key will be made known to anyone needing it.  We cannot put paint in the skip.

A programme of available times will be posted in the Church Hall, and for any queries.  Contact Kim Lowe.  No sorting can be done from Friday afternoon on 13th April or any time on 14th due to be Café Largo event.
 

CHRISTIAN AID

Christian Aid Week is approaching and this year it will be from 13th – 19th May. I am appealing for your help, yet again, in this great task.

The house to house collection is our greatest fundraiser so volunteers for this task are most important. In addition we need helpers to count the money and 2 or 3 people to make soup for these helpers.

If you are fit or want to get fit please consider walking (or running) the Kirkcudbright Half Marathon for us. Continuing back problems mean that I am unlikely to do this myself this year but will help in getting sponsors for others.

Mary Newton will again be doing her famous tea for us. Any new ideas will be most welcome.

If you can help in any way please contact me.

Many Thanks.

Linda Kinnell
 

Kirkcudbright Parish Church

At the heart of Kirkcudbright, having Kirkcudbright at heart!

On Sundays and throughout the week, our congregation offers you a variety of opportunities for fellowship and service, whatever your age or background.  We welcome others of faith and of no faith to join us in journeying with Christ, He who has promised to be with us always.  We are all at different stages of our journeying and a good number of us discover particular friendship and companioning in our four Home Fellowship Groups which meet weekly. 

We have a fine, light and spacious church building dating from 1838 designed by the Scottish Architect William Burn; also a fine purpose-built church hall, with a well equipped kitchen, which provides a meeting place for not a few church and community groups.   A current congregational initiative is looking at the possibility of releasing our fine, but under-used, 175 year-old church building into 7 day-a-week use under local community ownership which we would continue to use alongside other community co-users.  Plans have been drawn up for the development of the building for such multi-community use and discussions with all interested parties are ongoing at the moment.

You, whom God sends our way, however, are our main concern.  Should you consider that we might be of service to you, please be in touch.
