Notices for the weeks beginning 20th May 2019


St Mary’s Third Sunday at Three Concert Series

David Hamilton’s splendid recital on the 19th May proved especially memorable as he included a lecture about the nature and workings of the organ. Thanks, as always to those who organise these events. A great deal of time and effort is involved.

There is no concert in June. The summer season opens on Sunday 21st July. Details to follow.

Thursday 30th May
Dunblane Area Council Ascension Day Service at Holy Trinity Church Albert Place Stirling

Preacher: The Right Revd Ian Paton Bishop of St Andrews Dunkeld and Dunblane.

The Linkage has been asked to provide a reader for the Epistle at the service. Is there a volunteer? Please let me know.

St Mary’s

Summer Fair

Saturday 8th June

Elizabeth Roads asks:

Please could you bring donations for the raffle at the Summer Fair on 8th June to church in advance of the day to allow time for raffle tickets to be attached and ensure there are sufficient prizes?  In years past a major buying trip has been required to ensure the raffle can proceed and that is not really the point of a church raffle.  The same few donate each year. Thanks to those who have already donated
