BLYTHSWOOD CARE SHOEBOX APPEAL 2017

Make Someone Happy this Christmas!

It is time once again to think about filling shoeboxes.

Last year Blythswood Care delivered 121,474 shoeboxes to people in Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Kosovo, Moldova, Pakistan, Romania, Serbia and Ukraine. This is only possible through the generosity and kindness of people like you.

Everyday things that we take for granted can often be luxuries for people in desperate poverty, so please take a leaflet and fill a shoebox. Give hope to someone in need this Christmas.

Leaflets are available in the vestibule of the Church, in the Church Hall or from Cavers and Co. Boxes can be handed in to Cavers and Co. 40/42 St Mary Street, Kirkcudbright or at any Church service before 14th November. We have a supply of empty boxes at Cavers and Co, so please pick one up from there if necessary.
 

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.
