* A Global Mission Evening has been organised for our Presbytery to be held in McQuiston Church at 7pm. It is hoped that there will be missionaries from Spain, Portugal and Romania taking part. This will be a great opportunity to see and hear at first hand from folk working in these countries.


** This will be the first of a mini series of 3 where David will be helping us explore God’s call to every believer to a deeper Christian life. Those who heard David speak earlier in January will know of his gracious gentle manner in encouraging us to experience more of God. Even if not a regular, please consider making these three evenings a priority. I believe they will be of real benefit. Mervyn Burnside

Note from the Minister

There is an excellent Bible overview resource available as a mobile phone app. You can access “The Whole Bible Reading Plan” on the Youversion Bible App, for free. This 50-day reading plan walks you through the story of the whole Bible, and helps you reflect on how it shapes your whole life. The bite-size readings and real-life application questions help illuminate God’s plan to renew all areas of life. I have found this to be an excellent resource helping to knit together some of the main themes of the Big Bible Story.
