Away Giving Campaigns for the year ahead

In addition to the Bishop’s Lent Appeal, which we always support, we will be collecting money for three other charities in the year ahead.  If you’d like to suggest a charity that is close to your heart, speak to the Rector at your earliest convenience.

Daylight Bible Reading Notes

These are now to hand for those of you who requested a copy.  Please speak to Jackie for details of the cost. 

Old Gold

Do you have bits of gold – in the form of broken jewelry – lying around the house?  If so, would you like to donate it to Christ Church, so that we can sell it to raise money for church funds?  A box has been left on the table at the back of the church for you to deposit your donation.  Ken Scott, of McKellars the Jewelers in Lanark High Street, has agreed to use one of his contacts to turn unused gold into cash! 


When she is with us on Sundays The Revd Liz Clelland will offer pastoral prayer in the Memorial Chapel after the Sung Eucharist to individuals who would like it.
