Notices for the Week beginning 11th April

 Headlines

The Linkage will be sorrowed by news of the recent death of Dan Davidson. Although Dan and his wife Maureen lived in Kent, they kept a mobile home at Trossachs Holiday Park and were thus frequent visitors to both parishes. A memorial service will be held at St Mary’s later in the year. Our prayers are with Maureen and the family

Our best wishes to Saffrey Miller as she enters hospital shortly for a knee operation.

 

Sunday 17th April 2016 – 4th Sunday of Easter

 The Collect

Almighty God,
whose Son Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life:
raise us, who trust in him,
from the death of sin to the life of righteousness,
that we may seek those things which are above,
where he reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
