Our Harvest Lunch took place yesterday this was a great success and raised the magnificent sum of £868.00. A lot of people put in a great deal of hard work, whether it was cooking, serving, washing dishes and generally lending a hand. The money raised will go to St Andrew’s Hospice. Once again grateful thanks to everyone.
The Annual Subscription for Every Day with Jesus. Contrary to the information I was given the annual subscription is £16.95. This is the first price increase for several years. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
Christmas is not far away and it is time again to think of those less fortunate than ourselves so we will be doing the shoe boxes appeal again this year.

Painters will begin either 24th or 25th October. Not sure how long painting will take. When painters are finished it is proposed to employ a professional cleaning company.
Services at Rorison will be Sunday 29th October at 11.30am
Sunday 5th November (Communion) at 11.30am
Sunday 12th November at 11.30am
Restoring of the Church contents possibly Monday 13th November again at 9am. Tea and coffee will again be provided in Hamilton Hall.
It is hoped to be back in Dalserf on Sunday 19th November but this will depend on how long the painting and cleaning takes.
