Lodging House Mission Harvest Appeal 2018
If you are able to help with the LHM Harvest Appeal - any donation of food (or money) will be very gratefully appreciated. The LHM relies so much on donations of food as they are now open 364 days a year and this allows them to provide free breakfasts and lunches to homeless men and women. It would be very much appreciated if you could stick to the required items that they know they use - as this helps reduce time and space requirements enormously with sorting all the donations out (some of us know how big a task this is as we helped with this last year!!!). A full list of what is required and what is NOT can be found here. Most needed items are diluting juice, tinned meat and tinned vegetables. Please also note that tea and coffee are NOT required this year.
The Guild - Our 2018/19 session starts on Wednesday 3rd October and this will be an evening with the Strathaven Singers. Meeting as usual in the Carswell Centre at 7.30pm. A full syllabus can be found here.
Our next Messy Church will take place in the Carswell Centre on Friday 5th September from 4 to 6pm. Please join us to enjoy learning from the Bible, having fun with crafts and eating together in a warm and friendly environment. Contact Kirsty Clark as soon as possible to book your place. We are looking for help with registration from 3.45pm to 4.15pm and would very much appreciate a couple of volunteers.
