Toy Drive.  Fife Council’s Children and Families Team is again seeking gifts to distribute to children and families in North East Fife in need at Christmas.  The aim is to ensure every child (0-18 years) receives: 1 gift, 1 ‘stocking filler’ gift and 1 book.  Gifts must be NEW and UNUSED. If you would like to take part in this project then you may bring your gift (not wrapped, please) to Church any Sunday in November.

World Mission Stamp Appeal. Helen Donald has received a letter from the organiser of the World Mission Stamp Appeal (SC011353) Carol Finlay.  In 2016 £4,334 was raised to help the Church of South India.  This year funds raised will go to the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan.  In her letter the organiser asked me to thank everybody involved.  It s hoped that we will continue to help the appeal so please save your used stamps remembering to include a border of envelope around them.  Put them in the box at the back of the Church or phone me, Helen Donald, on 850050.
