Abbey Church Notices - 25 July 2010
Sunday 25 July 2010 .
 Apropos last Sunday’s intimation regarding the death of Abbey Member Mrs Ann Grieve, 57 Gowanbrae Drive, the Minister can now confirm that Mrs Grieve’s funeral will take place at Dunfermline Crematorium on Friday of this week commencing at 10 a.m.
 Weddings will take place in the Abbey during the course of next week as follows: On Thursday at 3.30 p.m. Violet Johnstone will be married to Alexander Burke and, on Saturday at 2 p.m., Donna Tomkins will be married to Andrew Barratt.
 Members of the Abbey Finance Committee to note that the Committee will meet on Thursday of this week in Room 1 of the Abbey Halls commencing at 7.30 p.m.
 The Associate Minister who, incidentally, will be back in harness for several Sundays commencing next Sunday, has asked the Minister to intimate that the congregational visit to Durham Cathedral in September will, in fact, be going ahead and that Mr Paton will be in touch soon with all concerned to let them know the arrangements. And apropos the recent notice given of a proposed congregation holiday to visit all the major ‘Highlights of China’ next April (2011), a limited number of personalised brochures are lying on the Rood Screen for uplift by any who might be interested, even if only in principle at this stage, in going. If you take one but decide not to follow up your initial interest, will you please return the brochure to the Rood Screen for potential perusal by others. The Minister will keep you posted on a possible briefing meeting on Wednesday 1st September.
 The final deadline, note, for all material for inclusion in the next edition of the Abbey Church magazine is Sunday 8 August – by the end of that Sunday’s Second Service, please, after which time no articles will be considered for publication. Copy may be left in the editor’s box in the South Porch designated ‘Mr A Carruthers / The Arrow’ or else e-mailed to him direct in which case a ‘hard’ copy should always be retained in case of transmission difficulties.
 A final intimation apropos leaflets on the Rood Screen pertaining to the Abbey Young Church’s recent promotion of ‘Mary’s Meals and the Backpack Project’. Together with the free school meals that Mary’s Meals provides, the backpacks we hope to send to help children from poor families in countries like Liberia and Malawi will help children to receive an education that will help them escape poverty in later life. Please take a leaflet on exit from church today, and you are thanked in anticipation of your support.
 Next Sunday the Minister will conclude his series of Services on ‘Christianity and the Theologians’ by looking at so-called Liberation Theology – the theology, that is, of liberation from things like injustice or oppression.
