June Notices


Following the excellent conversion of the “upper room” it can no longer be used by the crèche and therefore they have been relocated to the old office area.  This in turn means the office area cannot be used to count the offering as having tables and chairs out is not safe for young kids.  Could you please ensure that, with immediate effect, the morning collection is counted in the downstairs hall. There are plenty of tables and chairs available for this purpose, but these should not be put out prior to the Sunday School finishing.


Lyle Gateway has been so popular that a second morning per week is being offered on a trial basis

starting from Thursday 1st June.  If you have not yet visited because Tuesday doesn’t suit, here is your

opportunity to come along on a Thursday.     It will continue opening every Tuesday and Thursday over

the summer months.

Walking Group – the full programme of walks for the year is available at the rear of the church today.  If anyone would like further information please speak with Jimmy Fisher.


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.
