“The Sacrament of the Coffee”
Thanks to those who have indicated that they are willing to help with the arrangements for tea and coffee after the services. The more volunteers we have the easier it is to have a rota of people so if you are able to help, please have a word with Frances Bicket (854478, evenings only)
This will be served in the Newton Hall and will give us the opportunity to continue our fellowship after the service. The tea/coffee/biscuits will be Fairly Traded (that is what we have committed ourselves to as a Fairtrade congregation) and the first Sunday in September will be the start of this venture.
Harvest Sunday 25th September.
After the wonderful day last year when the service was held on West Scryne Farm, a common comment was – how can we beat that?! Well, we are not going to attempt it – but are going to continue some elements of what we did that Sunday in 2010. For example, we are going to have a Soup and Sweet Lunch in the Panbride Hall after the service (suggested donation £3) something we also plan to hold on the last Sunday of most months.
Also on Harvest Sunday, we will be using Christian Aid material relating to Bangladesh and everyone will have the opportunity to make a crab. Another first for Carnoustie Panbride! Want to know more? – then come along to the service in Newton Church on 25th September! The Homecoming Banner which hangs in the Link to the Panbride Hall, will also be a feature of the service. Intrigued? Come along to the service in Newton Church on 25th September! There will also be a retiring offering for our Mission Partners in Bangladesh, James and Linda Pender.
Donations of tins and non perishable foodstuffs will be received in church and taken to the Arbroath Food Project the following day.
BIG DAY OUT
The Presbytery is organising a Big Day Out which will be held in Arbroath on Saturday 17th September from 10am to 5pm. The event will be hosted in Arbroath;Old and Abbey Church and Arbroath: St Andrews which are within walking distance of one another. The cost for the day is £5 and is free for children. There will be something for everyone – from workshops about Eco congregations, the Wild Goose Resource Group of the Iona Community, Story Telling in worship, work with young people and the Bangladesh Link with the Presbytery as examples. There will be trade exhibition material on sale, ranging from Holy Socks to Church of Scotland Councils materials. There will also be a programme running throughout the day for children. Each congregation in the Presbytery has been asked to bring along a display to highlight some of their work. So why not come along and join us for the BIG DAY OUT.
