Gift Day 2017: One week to go!

Sunday, November 19th, 2017 | Tags:

On Sunday, 26th November, we will have our Annual Gift Day.  This is an opportunity for you to support our ministries and mission and ensure that our work is well resourced and effective in reaching out to meet the spiritual and practical needs within our communities.  See the November edition of ‘Quest’ for more details.

A generous proportion of our income What does the Bible say?
As some of us have much larger incomes than others, our offering should be a proportion of our income, rather than a fixed sum of money. If our offering is truly a response to God’s giving to us, it will be a generous, even sacrificial, proportion of our income.

(Psalm 116: 12)

Food for thought and preparation through prayer – Luke 21:01-04

Jesus watches the people presenting their gifts at the temple. Some rich people give large sums of money. A poor widow offers two small coins.

What was Jesus praising when he commended the widow’s offering?

Gift Day envelopes are available in the November edition of ‘Quest’ and from the church office or you can make an offering online by clicking on the button

You will all know that Martin our minister had a fall which resulted in a very serious break to his arm and elbow. As a result of this he has been signed off for a period of eight weeks. As a very fit and active person this is particularly frustrating for him.

In addition to the pain of such an injury he is also suffering from difficulty sleeping at night and the inevitable tiredness that results from this.

Meanwhile, the work of St Andrew’s goes on and we have been lucky to have our services ably led by Keith Scott and Tim Mineard initially and then for two weeks we have been delighted to welcome our friend David Searle. Ian Gray, our pastoral assistant is also undertaking additional duties.

We send Martin our love and best wishes and ask for God’s blessing on him and the manse family.

This year, the theme for the Church of Scotland’s General Assembly and Heart & Soul event is ‘Word of Life.’ Congregations have been encouraged to set up a Word of Life photo somewhere in their parish. Here’s our effort, outside the iconic Arbroath Abbey!
