UPDATE ON MASKS: It is no longer law to wear a facemask in the church. However, should you prefer to wear a mask throughout the service, or when you are moving round the church, then PLEASE DO SO. If you wish to keep your distance from others, we will respect your wishes. PLEASE continue to use hand gel and the one way system. Thank you!
God of Love, we thank you for the gift of children for they bring so much joy! They teach us to explore our world again in child-like ways; to gaze with wonder anew on the beauty of our countryside and of playing together, and developing together. Children bless our lives and touch our hearts. They bring us the gift of laughter and lift our spirits.
Thank you, Lord, for the blessings of children and of animals. May we never take them for granted, or abuse them in any way, but protect and nurture them in Christian love so that they may grow spiritually strong and shelter others from the storms of life. This we pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

TUESDAY 5th JULY at 2.30pm: Drumdarroch House service. Dr. Kay needs two volunteers, please. Thank you. Please not CHANGE OF DAY.
THURSDAY 7th JULY to WEDNESDAY 27th JULY: Dr. Kay on holiday, firstly to Oberammergau and then from Monday the 18th to Sunday 24th she is doing a sponsored hike from North Queensferry to Newport-on-Tay. However, as the golf competitions are on i St. Andrews, for two days she and her friends will have to walk an extra eight miles to get to their accommodation and back again. The mileage will probably be over one hundred miles, but please have a look at the pictures beside the sponsor sheets so you can see the rock climbing/chain walking that they will have to do in some areas. It is exciting! If you would like to sponsor Dr. Kay, please add your name to the sheet at the door. The proceeds will be divided between the church and ATC Squadron 1298. Thank you.
