October Notices


Please remember that parking at the front door is reserved for “blue badge” holders only.  Parking at the side of the church building should be for those who have more minor mobility problems.  If you are able, please park in the surrounding streets and leave the grounds free for those who need it. Also please do not park on both sides of Newark Avenue as it makes access impossible for emergency services.

Music in Lyle Kirk - The first in the programme is an organ recital by John Bell entitled “mixed allsorts”. A screen will be set up to allow you to watch the performance.                                                                                  

Pastoral Care - It is vital that the pastoral care team are kept informed of members of the congregation who might be in need of either a visit from one of the team, a visit from the minister or perhaps to receive the church flowers.  In order to assist in this process, a pastoral care card has been placed in the centre aisle seats and at the rear of the church.  Please make use of them and pass to the minister on the way out of church giving as much information as you can.


Traidcraft stall - There will be a Traidcraft Stall on the last Sunday of each month


Retiral Offerings – there will be a retiral offering in support of the Kirk Session Fund after our communion service on Sunday October 1st.  There will be a further retiral offering on Harvest Sunday in aid of the Hurricane Disaster Appeal.  On Remembrance Sunday there will be the opportunity to make a donation to the Help for Heroes appeal.


Church Office - The church office not be open on October 12th, 19th and 26th as the secretary will be on holiday.


Notices – any items for the monthly notices sheet should be in the hands of the secretary no later than the last Wednesday in the month
