Some other important news
LOST Apple iPhone
An iPhone has been found in Aberfeldy Parish Church on the windowsill in the Sanctuary – could this be yours or belong to someone who came with you to a service . We have the list from Trace and Protect so might be able to trace the owner through this! (The phone has a broken screen and back plate)
Linkage Covid Group
The Linkage Covid Group meet again today, Wednesday, 26 January 2022.
The Scottish Government previously announced several significant changes to the Covid – 19 regulations that affect our morning worship and use of the buildings.
Face coverings remain a legal requirement unless you are medically exempt or under 12.
From Friday 28 January band members and choirs can perform without a face covering - providing there is a 1m distance between other performers/audience. This also applies to those leading our worship.
You can remove your face covering when seated at a table drinking tea or coffee
CAPACITY AND SOCIAL DISTANCING
Although there is no longer a limit on the number of people who can attend places of worship. The regulations require that we continue to minimise the risk of the incidence and spread of the virus.
Physical distancing is still recommended during worship and in other areas of the building wherever possible.
Please keep a safe distance from others at the entrance, doorways and in the corridors.
Avoid overcrowding in small spaces

CLIMATE EMERGENCY. We are planning to re-form an ‘Eco Team’ at Aberfeldy Parish Church in order to help us as a church community and as individuals to focus more on God’s call for climate justice. Please contact Anna Sibbald (email@example.com or 07759 404980) if you would like to be involved in any way.
If you know of anyone who is struggling to heat their house and / or pay their energy bills, please do pass them on to us at Warm Connections, and we would be delighted to advise on ways of reducing our energy consumption and bills.
Breadalbane Community Larder
Breadalbane Community Larder
For emergency support call 0345 30 111 00 (Mon – Fri 9.00am – 5.00pm) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Community Larder is open at Offizone on Kenmore Street each Saturday from 11.00am – 12.30pm for customers to purchase dried and tinned goods at a reduced rate – 4 items for £1. A FoodShare table is also available for anyone keen to reduce food waste.
The FoodShare table at the rear of Aberfeldy Parish Church is open 24/7 and often has a variety of goods which would otherwise be sent to the Co-op's bio-digester. It's our Christian responsibility to 'tend the garden' ie our planet so we can all do our bit to reduce food waste by 'shopping' at the FoodShare table from time to time.
Building of the permanent shelter has begun and although it doesn't look particularly pretty right now it will be much better when it's finished. There are plans to include a community fridge enabling us to provide an even wider variety of goods. Remember, this is not about feeding the hungry but rather, this part of the Community Larder project is for the whole community, to make a difference in reducing food waste which in turn has an environmental impact in these days of heightened awareness of the climate emergency.
If you know of anyone struggling to make ends meet, please let them know about the range of support provided by Breadalbane Community Larder.
The Larder is a joint initiative of several local churches and also involves members of the local community. If you would like to be involved, please contact the team on 07513 652597 or email email@example.com
We recognise that for many the current restrictions and uncertainty can make life very stressful. The ministry team can offer pastoral support, but for a few this may not be enough. Perth and Kinross Council have an excellent directory of services. You can type in:
