Caring Means Sharing.  Thank you to everyone, from both congregations, for your very generous donations.  Todate we have raised £3660 (including Gift Aid).  So each of our chosen charities will receive approximately £1220.  Local—Families First, National—Dravets UK, International—International Justice Mission.


Our Eco Fair was successful in bringing together students, local organisations and various church communities.  It provided space to share ideas and knowledge, get to know each other and purchase environmentally friendly goods!  Although fundraising was not the primary purpose of the event, we were pleased to raise £490 which will go towards improving facilities at Hope Park and Martyrs Church.  Many thanks to our student volunteers and to everyone who supported the event by organising and manning stalls, providing catering, and welcoming the many visitors, your help was very much appreciated.


Scrabble Evening.  The next Scrabble Evening will be held on Frida 25th October at 7.00pm in Hope Park and Martyrs Church.  We aim to play two games during the evening with a break for a cup of tea at 8.00pm.  There is no required standard of play and everyone is welcome.  Please bring your friends!  For further details contact Flora Falls on 476095.


Family Scottish Night.  Open Doors invite everyone no matter what your age to come and enjoy our Family Scottish Night in Hope Park and Martyrs Church at 5:30pm on Saturday 30th November which is St Andrews Night!  Have fun with music from Billy Anderson, dancing, games and food.  Free tickets available from the Open Doors Team.  Stovies for adults and sausages and sausage rolls for the children.Come and join us!


General Trustees Building and Land Survey.  Well-equipped spaces in the right places.  Rt Rev Colin Sinclair, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, encouraged everyone to get involved with the process, saying:  “At the General Assembly this year there was an overwhelming endorsement of the need to change.  The work of the Special Commission and the Radical Action Plan were adopted and work to implement them has already begun.  However, it was stressed at the Assembly that there was a third aspect to this work which affects the land and buildings we use and the need for 'well equipped spaces in the right places' as a resource for worship, mission and outreach.  “Buildings are hugely important to everyone in the Church and we all have strong feelings about the buildings we know best.  We need to get this right.  So I very much welcome the General Trustees consultation which asks all of us to complete the online survey on how best to manage our land and buildings. This can be completed by individuals, kirk sessions and presbyteries and input at all these levels will be immensely helpful.”  The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/COSBuildingsPlan The closing date is 31st October.
