Heating in the house. Unfortunately the heating in the Chapel House has been looked at and the boiler and the radiators are no longer fit for purpose. This will really have to be done before next winter approaches. I have received one estimate at the moment and I am waiting on others coming in, but it would seem that the cost will be in the region of £7,500 plus vat. This would make it around £9,000. Unfortunately we only have around £5,000 in the Church Account and even with the Church Fair, Coffee mornings and the Gift Aid, we are still going to struggle. If anyone has any fund raising ideas or would like to donate towards the heating please let me know.
Heating Fund, The heating fund now stands at £5,968.38. Thank you very much indeed. Next Sunday there will be a second collection for the heating fund, please be as generous as you can.
Summer Fayre Our Summer Fayre made the magnificent total of £1054, thanks very much indeed to everyone for this splendid effort.
Kinnoull Pastoral Weekend, Our Diocesan Pastoral weekend is upon us again, and it take place on the 5th to the 7th of September, anyone wishing to go please contact Moira Shaw.
Children's Liturgy, Those wishing to help with the Children's Liturgy, please leave your names at on the rota at the back of the Church.
Unity The Summer copy of Unity is at the back of the Church please pick up a copy. Thanks very much to Marian Pallister for her continued hard work in putting Unity together.
There will be a Coffee Morning from 10-12am on Saturday the 13th of September, all proceeds will go to the Heating Fund.
Diocesan Meetings, I have to be in Oban for the Annual Diocesan Meetings on Wednesday and Thursday of next week. Therefore there will be no Mass on either of those days. There will be communion services as usual.
