Dunblane Area Council
The next meeting of Area Council takes place on this coming Tuesday 19th September starting at 19.30 at St Saviours Church Bridge of Allan FK9 4AY. The meeting will comprise a presentation by members of Place for Hope, a highly regarded dispute resolution group that has worked together with charges in our diocese and many other groups to move forward from dissension to resolution. This should be an interesting evening and we hope as many as possible will attend.
The Harvest Supper and Quiz
for both parishes will be held at St Andrews Callander on Friday 29th September commencing 19.30.
Could you please let Fiona Gibson (firstname.lastname@example.org or 01877 331926) as soon as possible whether you are likely to attend and what you might be able to bring. It is suggested that each person brings one item serving six people. This is quiche, cold meat, a salad, a pudding, wine or a soft drink. Paper copies of this notice can be found in both churches should you prefer. Please supply your own plate and cutlery!

God, who in generous mercy sent the Holy Spirit
upon your Church in the burning fire of your love:
grant that your people may be fervent
in the fellowship of the gospel
that, always abiding in you,
they may be found steadfast in faith and active in service;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Clare Cushing of St Anthony’s Roman Catholic Church in Balfron writes
‘The Balfron Community Choir , (which originally grew from the church choir in Balfron Church) are coming to perform at St. Anthony’s. Although this is not an official ecumenical event, I thought it might be nice if everyone who has a link with St. Anthony’s or a link through the churches in Balfron area felt welcome to come along to the concert.
The concert will start at 7:30 and will contain a variety of repertoire to suit everyone, from Mozart to les Mis and lots in between !
Tickets are £4 and £2 and can be purchased from Balfron Library, Mac Farlanes (Hardware) in Balfron, or from me on 07726941407’
