Our Christmas Cards will be available for sale at the Christmas Market on 18 November, so don’t buy all your cards before then! It’s always difficult to find suitable images to feature on the card, so if you’re out and about with your phone, camera or other photographic device over the Christmas period, do take some pictures which could be suitable to adorn the front of the 2018 Christmas card!
The Christmas Market takes place on Saturday 18 November. We will once again have all our usual stalls selling all those essential items for Christmas: candles, gifts, preserves, tablet, home baking, stocking fillers, decorations, plants etc. There will be games and competitions with prizes, the ever-popular lucky numbers stall and even a visitor from Lapland! And to make sure you don’t go hungry while spending your money, refreshments (tea, coffee, ploughman’s lunches, cakes etc) will be available all day.
If you have any new unwanted gifts that would be suitable for any of the stalls, these will be very welcome. Any offers of home baking for the afternoon teas or the cake stall will also be greatly appreciated (please see Margaret Ross or the church secretary).
Borderline has been selected, along with two other homelessness charities, to participate in this year’s CEO Sleepout. Shona Fleming, CEO, will be sleeping out for one night on Monday 30 October at Lord’s Cricket Ground, and now our intrepid Minister has signed up to join her! He needs to raise £2,000, so please sponsor him! Go to www.justgiving.com/philip-majcher, or speak to him personally.
Because of complications to the work in the kitchen, lunches for the rest of October will consist of bread, cheese and fruit.
The charity ScotsCare, which is committed to helping Scots and their families who need assistance in the Greater London area, is looking for new Trustees. This is a voluntary role, although expenses can be paid. For further information, please speak to the Minister or the church secretary.
