Our Light Up a Life Service will be on Sunday 29 November, 2020 at 7pm and, unfortunately this year we will be unable to welcome everyone at the Hospice due to the COVID 19 restrictions but the service will be online for people to watch in the comfort of their own homes.
Dalserf Church commend the work of the Hospice and ask for support for the work it undertaken.
Support is needed financially and prayerfully.

SHOE BOXES FOR BLYTHSWOOD
These have to be at East Kilbride on Wednesday 4th November. Joan and I will be in carpark at Rorison on the morning of the 4th at 11.30 to receive donations. Anyone having problems with these arrangements should contact either of us and we will arrange to collect. If you cannot fill a shoe box and would like to make a monetary donation the Blythswood Office is making up boxes with monies received.
An alternative to the shoe box is a drawstring cloth bag measuring 40cm X 30cm.
The list of contents for a box or alternative such as family box or a box for the elderly can be found on the Church web site or from Kay Blair. If possible please include £3.00 donation towards transport of the gifts.
Christmas CANNOT be cancelled, as is being suggested by some media, as it is the celebration of the birth of our Lord. However it looks like it could be bleak compared to how we usually celebrate. Just think how much worse it could be if Blythswood has nothing to offer to those who have next to nothing. Remember Jesus said what we do for a stranger we do for Him.

Churches throughout the country may be closed for public worship but Dalserf was still able to pay respects to the lives lost keeping our shores safe in WW11 and celebrating the freedom we all share thanks to the efforts and sacrifice of a stoic generation. A freedom which we will once more enjoy after the Pandemic is defeated. Each week since lockdown the clock has been wound up and flowers lovingly placed on the Communion Table. All this can be virtually shared by the Congregation thanks to the devotion of a dedicated member.
