SUMMER BIBLE STUDY - SEE PRAYER AND PRAYER DIARY


Stirling Art Club

We are approaching the time for our Annual Exhibition - it only seems like last month when we were holding our last one!! We enjoyed our last visit with the improvements to your hall.

It starts on Saturday 5 August and finishes on Saturday 12 August. Most days it is open from 10.00 am to 8.00 pm except for the last Saturday when it closes at 5.00 pm and Sunday 6 August when it is open from 2.00 pm to 6.00 pm.

As usual, Holy Trinity congregation will be able to have your own private viewing when you have your coffee/tea after your morning service. We hope you enjoy what we have to offer this year and might even be tempted to come back and buy one.

Thank you again for allowing us to use your Hall - it is greatly appreciated.

Mothers Union Update

We ask you to keep collecting and donating flip-flops for us to give to the Street Pastors. They give them out to the youngsters who have had too much to drink during weekend frivolities in the City and can no longer walk in their high heels. This small intervention prevents numerous admissions to A&E to have cuts stitched up after having stepped on broken bottles.

We also ask you to keep donating knickers so that we can give them to the women who find themselves in Cornton Vale with no change of underclothes. There is a basket at the back of the church for these items.

You may also be interested to know that last year members and friends knitted 60 matinee jackets, 68 wee hats, twelve shawls, as well as bootees and mittens for the premature baby unit at Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Larbert. The staff are extremely appreciative and find these donations invaluable. If anyone is interested in knitting for us please get in touch with Helen Kemp or Mary Kenyon. All meetings are open to non-members. You will be most welcome.

As others see us…
