A short act of worship will take place at 3.00pm on Thursday 5th July in the Cathedral Grounds to which members are invited to attend.  It will be led by Rev Alasdair Coles from All Saints and Rev Allan McCafferty.  (It should last around 30 minutes.)  Next Sunday the congregation of All Saints has decided to mark the anniversary by starting at the Cathedral at 9.40am and then processing to All Saints for their worship which starts at 10.00am.  It will be their main Sung Eucharist Service.  Allan has been invited to preach.  After preaching he will have to leave the service to get back to Hope Park and Martyrs for our 11.00am joint worship.  Members from the congregation are warmly invited to attend.You can either leave with Allan after the sermon for our service at 11.00am or you may like to remain in All Saints and if you are able share coffee with them after worship.If you would like to attend All Saints there is a sheet in the vestibule to give an indication of the numbers from our congregation who would like to worship there.

World Mission Stamp Appeal.  This year`s appeal will raise money for The Reformed Church in Transcarpathia (Ukraine) which helps run a number of day care centres which provide educational, emotional and physical support for children and young people with disabilities.  The World Mission Council`s Stamp Appeal will support the young people to live life in all its fullness, and to enjoy opportunities to participate in society and family life.  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 Helen Donald on 850050.
