THE LORD’S PRAYER – Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name; Your kingdom come, your will be done; on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and forever. Amen

As a congregation we extend best wishes and Christian Love to Shona and David who were married in the Church on Saturday 14th July.
“So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”

A WARM WELCOME TO CHURCH TODAY. If you’re a visitor please sign our visitor’s book in the vestibule. Our church has something for all ages & activities go on throughout the week. Please join us in the Hall after this service where tea/coffee is served. Large print bulletins are available from the duty team.

PASTORAL COVER – during Mr Reid’s absence I shall be grateful if members of the congregation and elders could advise me as quickly as possible, by telephone or email, of any illness or pastoral visits requiring to be made and also of people who may be in hospital. Please do not leave it till you see me on Sundays. Thank you – Rev Eric McLachlan (contact details above).

SUMMER CHOIR – we meet weekly at 10:15am in the Session House during July & August. We’ll look at fun & easy pieces of music with the emphasis on having fun! So, please feel free to come along and try out Summer Choir – a warm welcome awaits you!

WILLIAMWOOD HISTORY BOOKLET – Stuart Wallace’s History of Williamwood Parish Church to celebrate the 75th Anniversary is on sale at the front of the church and in the large hall.

CHURCH GARDEN TEAM will carry on each Tuesday throughout the “Summer.” As usual it’d be helpful if you can bring your own tools. Main tasks at the moment are weeding & hedge trimming. We’d be happy to welcome new members. Forget the Gyms & Slimming classes, come & get fit for free. See Jimmy Craig for info.

ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITION – Could anyone who is prepared to help serve refreshments at our 75th Anniversary Exhibition at the end of September let Carole Lyons know. If possible a preference as to date would be greatly appreciated. That way Carole can pull together a rota to ensure we have adequate help throughout. (Dates: Friday 28th evening, Saturday 29th afternoon, Sunday 30th evening).

NEXT SUNDAY – Tea and Coffee after the morning service is served our Church Choir. Our bible reader is Tony Drysdale.

POST CARDS TO WILLIAMWOOD – in our 75th year as you travel on holiday in the UK or abroad please send a postcard to your Church Family here at Williamwood. We’ll track on a map in the Large Hall how far we have travelled. Please look at the map on the back wall of the hall we’ve got quite a few postcards already. Please also leave a “Calling Card” with greetings from Williamwood in any church you visit or worship in while on holiday. These are available at the front door.

As at the end of June the Freewill Givings total was £42,695 against a budget of £45,000 a variance to budget of £2,305. On this basis we would expect to see an annual shortfall to budget of £4,610 given current givings level being maintained. Thank you for your continued support.
