Notices

29th Dec 4:00pm Carol Service at St Ninian’s Castle Douglas.

 

Healing Blankets are available in both churches. If you know of someone suffering illness, grief or loneliness, in need of a ‘comforter’, please take a blanket from the front of church. The recipient will know that they are enfolded in the prayers of the church.

 

Donations for local Food Banks can be left at the back of both churches. St Ninian’s supports CD ‘Helping Hands Food Bank’ and Christ Church supports Kirkcudbright Food Bank. Non-perishable foods please, also toiletries. NB: Please will you write the Best Before Date clearly on food items. This helps the people at the Food Banks and saves them time looking for hard to find dates.

Please pray for…

Pray also for those who are caring for these people.

The Bishops as they seek God’s will in choosing the next bishop for our diocese.
