Notices for the Week beginning 2nd May
Scottish Church Census
The Linkage has been asked to take part on the Scottish Church Census. Every one of the 4,000 local churches in Scotland will be invited to take part in the most comprehensive survey ever undertaken of churchgoing in this country. As well as a form for the Church to complete, each member of the congregation attending a service on Sunday 8th May will be asked to fill in a very short slip. We shall be very grateful if you could undertake this and hand your slip before leaving the Church. Equally we shall understand should you wish to decline to take part.
