There is to be an Evening Service in the Abbey Church on Sunday 1st April at 6pm. It will be led by the ‘Signing Choir’ which is a Group from The Albany Church for the Deaf in Edinburgh, who will present their own form of worship. This promises to be a very interesting service and it is hoped that there will be good support for it.

There will be another Heartstart Session in July/ August for those who have given their names to Rosemary Miller, but were unable to attend the last course due to numbers. Date will be confirmed later.

This is the 40th anniversary of the Forth Bridge Walk for Christian Aid.
It takes place on Saturday 28th April from 2pm. If you would like to join the Abbey Group, please contact Lydia Lawson (01383-820164) or sign the sheet on the notice board before the end of March.
