Abbey Church Notices - 8 May 2011
Abbey Church Notices for Sunday 8th May 2011.
1. Competitors in the annual Abbey Quaich Golf Competition, are reminded that the competition is scheduled to take place at Dunfermline Golf Course (Pitfirrane) on Thursday of this week, tee-ing off at 1pm. The minister added to this notice ‘Please God, let the weather be kind!’
2. A reminded that there is a notice on the Nave Notice Board about an event entitled ‘Roll Away the Stone’ which is a celebration of the life of the Church being held in Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh on Sunday afternoon, 22nd May from 1pm. Support from the whole Church of Scotland membership is invited for this event and it promises to be a great day out and a chance to celebrate our faith with others on the Sunday afternoon of the General Assembly. Please have a look at the notice board concerning this and do plan to support it if you can.
3. Also on the notice board is a request for help from Gardening Scotland who appeal for volunteers to help them at the Royal Highland Showground, Ingliston over the first weekend of June. If you are interested in that, the information is all there on the board.
4. The Ladies Forum bring to your attention their Strawberry Tea which is to be held in the Church Hall on Wednesday 1st June from 2pm. Admission is £3 and this includes entertainment. Again, there are details on the notice board. Plenty of notice of this event, so please make a note of it.
5. Also, looking ahead, there are two Sunday evening events coming up shortly, here at the Abbey Church. On Sunday 29th May at 6pm there will be one of our occasional evening services, and this will feature the Chamber Choir and string players of George Heriot’s School in Edinburgh who will be singing a number of well known pieces and, for one, will be joined by our own choristers. And the following Sunday – 5th June at 7.30pm - the Abbey Choir and an orchestra will present ‘The Armed Man’ which is a Mass for Peace. There is information about both of these events on the notice board and smaller leaflets will be available for both shortly. Please do plan to attend these additional services. The Evening Service is, of course, free; but there is a small charge for the event on 5th June.
6. Next Sunday, the services at 9.30am and 11am will be conducted by the minister, who returns from his holiday at the beginning of this week.
