 5th Jan Feast of the Epiphany

12th Jan Congregational Open Meeting to discuss how we use and run the Gordon Memorial Hall to follow after the Eucharist.

 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…

A prayer for our country

Bless our beautiful land, O Lord, with its wonderful variety of people, of races, cultures and languages.

May we be a nation of laughter and joy, of justice and reconciliation, of peace and unity, of compassion, caring and sharing.

We pray this prayer for a true patriotism, in the powerful name of Jesus our Lord.                            Desmond Tutu
