Notices for week beginning 9th October 2017
These took place yesterday. Special thanks is due to those who spent time and effort decorating both churches and those who contributed gifts to charity
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 next concert will take place at 15.00 on Sunday 15th October and given by Alison McNeil and Sasha Savaloni. This is a concert for voice and guitar featuring songs from Spain, France and Scotland. 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.

Sunday 15th October
Almighty and everlasting God,
increase in us your gift of faith
that, forsaking what lies behind
and reaching out to that which is before,
we may run the way of your commandments
and win the crown of everlasting joy;
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.
