Notices for the weeks beginning 22nd April


Saffrey Miller RIP

Easter has been overshadowed by the sudden death of Saffrey at home having that morning attended the Good Friday devotion at St Mary’s. This naturally has come as a terrible blow both to the family and to us all. Funeral arrangements will be notified in due course. Our prayers for David and the family.

Please also remember Michael Forsyth as he delivers the eulogy at his father’s funeral on the 23rd April. Our prayers for all the family.

Richard’s thanks to those who have assisted with the Easter celebrations especially to those who participated in the services and arranged beautiful decorations in both churches

The Start Up Stirling Lent Challenge

Many thanks to all who donated food and money to the Lent challenge.

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.

St Andrews

 John and Elizabeth Fountain wish to thank everyone for their help and support given to them during John’s stay in hospital

Almighty Father,

you have given your only Son to die for our sins

and to rise again for our justification:

grant us so to put away the leaven of malice and wickedness

that we may always serve you

in pureness of living and truth;

through the merits of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
