A WARM WELCOME AWAITS ALL AT THE FUN WEEK FINALE SERVICE on Sunday 14th August at 10.30am. Children please meet their leaders in the hall at 10.15am. And please stay after the service to enjoy lovely refreshments and baking by Kerry Smith.

Apologies, Dr. Kay’s C of S is not working properly at the moment. Please use her personal e-mail until she can get her work e-mail fixed. Thank you.

There is a retiring offering ON SUNDAY for CHRISTIAN AID. We didn’t receive any warning as the offering is in response to an urgent plea for help to feed the starving people of EAST AFRICA who are in crisis. Thanking you in anticipation for anything spare which you may have to give.

GRATEFUL THANKS to everyone who participated in and contributed to the Fun Week in anyway, especially our lovely leaders and helpers including those from DREAMS! It was FUN! And we learned so much from our lovely guests: Mrs Hilary Musgrave and her helpers Frank; Mrs Linsey Gibb; and Sister Mary Gianna and Sister Emelda. And thanks to Mrs Becky Brown for her instruction on Calligraphy! Also, thank you to Jane Reid for the ice-cream, sprinkles, marshmallows and sauces! delicious!

DR. KAY has completed her sponsored walk up the East Neuk Trail, 118.1 miles which included 500 metres of chain walking across the cliffs near Elie. Grateful thanks to all those who have sponsored her. Would you please be so kind as to pay your dues to Susan Donald, Diane McCallum, or Moira Thom. You may also pay directly in the church bank account: TSB Insch Leslie Premnay Oyne Parish Church; 30-25-89; 00753593. Thank you all very much. At the moment she has raised just over £2, 000 and so we have given £1,000 to the ATC Squadron 1298 for the weekend camp of the Cadets. They are over the moon at your generous support. Thank you!

’Confidence to Cook’ Training for Trainers Refresher Course
Confidence 2 Cook (C2C) is an NHS Grampian resource designed to equip those working in a community setting with the skills, knowledge and confidence to help others start to cook. It is designed to increase knowledge of food and health as well as help you to support others to develop their cooking own skills. It is underpinned by a separate Training for Trainers course.
C2C has been updated & refreshed and NHS Grampian, with the support of Aberdeenshire Public Health Team, are offering a refresher course for C2C. The Confidence to Cook web-site offers all the resources you need to plan, design, run and evaluate cooking courses.
If you have been trained in C2C, have delivered to at least one group in the community and are still interested in delivering Confidence 2 Cook with your organisation or in your community then this is the course for you. The course will be run on line through the Microsoft Teams platform.
Date for Refresher Course:
Venue: Online through MS Teams
Thursday 1st September 2022
Time: 9.30 -11.30am

Donate Online

Church of Scotland ministers are reaching out by phone or online to provide pastoral care and spiritual support to people who need reassurance, hope and comfort. Many are supporting our key workers and their families as they continue to deliver vital services. They are caring for bereaved families amid challenging restrictions.

In addition, many churches are providing critical community services such as running foodbanks and feeding the hungry and homeless. A donation from you can help support the Church's work in your area and ensure the Church is sufficiently equipped and resourced to face these challenging times.

Whether you are a church member who wants to continue to give your regular offering to your own congregation or a friend to the Church who is moved to contribute for the good of your community, we want to help you support the Church in whichever way you feel led.
