Abbey Church Notices - 29 May 2011
Abbey Church Notices as intimated on Sunday 29 May 2011
 Tonight in the Abbey Church, commencing at 6 pm, yet another of the occasional Evening Services in the Abbey promoted by The Reverend Iain Paton will feature the Chamber Choir and String Players of George Heriot’s School in Edinburgh who will be performing a number of well-known pieces joined, for one of these, by the Abbey Choristers. Mr Paton is keen to commend that Service, commenting that the organiser, Judith Buttars, is putting a great deal of work into it, and he thinks that it will be an impressive group of young people that she brings with her. They will be practicing, incidentally, in the church this afternoon from 2.30 pm onwards! Please consider coming along if you can and, please note, there is no charge for that event.
 Copies of the June edition of the Church of Scotland magazine ‘Life and Work’ are on the Rood Screen awaiting uplift by all those who subscribe annually to receive the magazine.
 The Abbey Men’s Leisure Club meets on Wednesday morning in the church halls at 9.30 for 10 a.m. and the Ladies Forum will be hosting a Strawberry Tea in the halls on Wednesday afternoon at 2 pm. Admission is £3 inclusive of entertainment and that event, note, is open to everyone, men as well as women, and tickets can be had in the Old Nave following this morning’s Services or by telephoning 01383 729225.
 Next Sunday evening in the Abbey Church, commencing at 7.30 pm, the Abbey Choristers together with an orchestra will be presenting ‘The Armed Man’ which is a Mass for Peace. There is a charge for entry to that event but additional details can be had from the poster on the Nave Notice Board.
 Advance notice is given that the Abbey Sunday School Picnic will be taking place on Saturday 11 June commencing at 12.30 p.m. in Pittencrieff Park and, if anyone in the congregation would like to come along with grandchildren, nieces or nephews who don’t attend Sunday School, they would be welcome to join everyone else on the day … but, in order to avoid a catering nightmare, do impress upon them that they have to bring their own picnic!!
 During the course of this year’s recent Christian Aid Week, the total raised by door-to-door collectors associated with the Abbey, was £898 compared to £817 last year. Once again many thanks are due to the small band of collectors who give their time for that cause.
