The Sale of Household Goods was an enormous amount of work for many people but wonderful to see so many working happily together, each fulfilling their own role to ensure the success of the whole event.  Furniture was gathered over a number of weeks and thanks must go to Mrs Senior who stored some of it in her garage.  Ian, with his trailer and the labourers, picked up and delivered furniture throughout the week.  The Open Doors team provided bacon rolls and home baking throughout the day.  Sam was there with his camera.  Then when it was all over people continued to work into the next week clearing the hall, delivering items to charity shops, Castle Furnishings collected items and roadside adverts were gathered in.  What a team!!!!  The sum of nearly £4,000 was raised and will go to TCCL Lodge in St Andrews (the respite house for families who have a child with cancer), solar pumps for maternity wards and labs at Mwandi Mission, Zambia and the development of our very own Meeting Lounge in Room 3 at Hope Park and Martyrs Church.  All this AND the money raised through Caring Means Sharing.  We think everyone should be very proud of their church.  AND now Eric, Norrie and Moira are going to have a wee rest.

Caring Means Sharing.  Thank you to everyone for their very generous donations.  We have raised £2509.98 (including Gift Aid). So each of our chosen charities, The Lighthouse Café and Christian Resource Centre, Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent Fund and STEPS—

St Andrews Education for Palestinian Students, will each receive £836.66.  Thank you also for the harvest gift donations for local homes and hospital wards.  We have gathered 109 packets of biscuits and 208 toiletries which will be distributed shortly.

Lectionary Readings 1st October:  Exodus 17:1-7, Philippians 2:1-13 and Matthew 21:23-32.
