Used Postage Stamps
Save your used postage stamps and put them in the box at the rear of the church or post them to World Mission Stamp Project, PO Box 9191, Wishaw, Lanarkshire, ML2 0YB.
Proceeds go to a different charity each year.
A stall is usually available during the monthly snack lunches from where items can be purchased. Proceeds go to the Nyumbani children's homes.
Save all your loose change for the Leprosy Mission. Ask Jean McPhail for a collection pot Tel 01241.
Again, at Christmas 2017, the Fun club will be collecting for Send-a-Cow. The idea is that members of the congregation don't send Christmas cards to each other. Instead, they are being asked to pass on their Christmas greetings verbally or with hugs and donate the money they save to Send-a-Cow.
On Sunday 28th January, The Fun Club, with the help of the Guild, will be providing a snack lunch after morning worship. All proceeds will go to The Leprosy Mission.
There are opportunities for the church to make contact with Syrian Refugees who are being integrated into our society. Members of our congregation, who wish, can assist the Syrian families improve their conversational English. If you have a little free time and you would like to befriend a family and spend time speaking with them, please contact Angus Refugee Care on Tel: 07446 129176 email:firstname.lastname@example.org
A visit to Cesky Tesin by four church members in October 2017 was organised by Alison Christie. The group received a very warm welcome. When they came home, they gave an interesting and informative presentation on the visit.

The church, and in particular, George Robertson, will again be collecting made up "shoeboxes" for Blythswood this year, 2017. The boxes have to be returned to George at the church by November 5th, or they can be delivered to the van on 8th November between 9.30 and 11 a.m. Below is the leaflet for 2017 that shows the items requested and gives the instructions on how to fill your box. For an actual leaflet, please contact George Robertson or speak to someone in the church vestibule on Sunday before worship.
