As previously agreed by the Kirk Session and the Congregational Board, there will be a conference for elders, office bearers and organisation leaders on Sunday 14th September. It will begin with a light lunch after morning worship and finish by 5pm. We’ll be looking at the way forward at the beginning of the new church year and I hope that you’ll put the date in your diary now and plan to come along. The programme is currently being developed and will be available at the beginning of September but in the meantime please email Linda (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let her know that you’re coming.
The minister intends holding an information class beginning at 3.00P.M. on the first Sunday of September (i.e. 7th Sept.) This class will be held in the vestry and will meet for the four weeks of Sept. If this time and day proves to be unsuitable please have a word with Mr. McLachlan. If you or anyone you know may be interested in attending this class please fill in your details below and return them to Mr. McLachlan or any of the office bearers on door duty. This class is open to anyone who wishes to use it as a refresher course. It may be that you want to renew your membership vows. You will be most welcome. All members and friends please make this invitation as widely known as possible.
If anyone has membership with another Church and is considering moving to Williamwood please discuss this with the minister.
SUMMER CHOIR: There are only two more summer choir practices left this year, 24 and 31 August. Anyone is welcome to come along to lead our summer praise.
CHURCH CHOIR: Our first practice for the new session is on 21 August at 7:30 in the session house. We will not meet on Thursdays 4 and 11 September due to Alan being on holiday. Come along and join us on a Thursday evening/ Sunday morning. Singing is uplifting!
