The Collect

Heavenly Father,
whose blessed Son was revealed
to destroy the works of the devil
and to make us the children of God and heirs of eternal life:
grant that we, having this hope,
may purify ourselves even as he is pure;
that when he shall appear in power and great glory
we may be made like him in his
eternal and glorious kingdom;
where he is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen

Save the date

The Annual All Saints Ghillies Ball is on Saturday 11 January 2020.


There was a formal launch of the enlarged warehouse last Wednesday and the Foodbank is becoming an increasingly efficient operation. However, whilst extremely well stocked in pasta and tea, they desperately need Size 5 nappies, tins of corned beef, tinned potatoes, and pasta sauces. Details about the Christmas list and distribution will follow next week.

Thanks to all who helped with last week’s Junior Church bowling trip.
