Notices for week beginning 16th October 2017 




St Andrews Christmas Fair

Boxes to receive donations to various stalls are now at the back of church. Thank you to those who have donated so far.


St Mary’s Third Sunday at Three Concert Series

The concert held yesterday and performed by Alison McNeil and Sasha Savaloni proved a success and an enjoyable afternoon was had by all concerned. As always, our many thanks to those who put so much time and effort to make these events possible.


The next concert takes place on Sunday 19th November where Gordon Ferries will perform a concert of lute and guitar music. Entry by donation.


The Concert Team are always considering new ways to advertise the
concert series. Earlier this summer they started to have flyers printed
for each concert. These can be left in suitable locations – libraries,
filling stations, medical centres, post offices for people to pick up,
or handed to friends and acquaintances. The minimum order for these is
500, and the organisers have been trying to distribute them, but their
reach is necessarily local to Aberfoyle, and many of the 500 copies are
wasted. So the organisers are asking for volunteers from the
congregation to help them reach further: could you help please? Christopher Roads or Richard will be pleased to hear from you. Thank you to those who have already volunteered.

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
