Dear Friends,

 

Once again, I have highlighted a couple of things happening you might want to take a note of. Please let me know if you are planning something or are involved in an activity others would enjoy coming to.

 

Aberfeldy Parish Church has a new administrator – Karen Kellman.

It is hoped Karen will be able to start in early April, just as soon as the necessary safeguarding paperwork is in place. Many will have heard her wonderful singing voice in recent weeks. If you haven’t spoken to her yet, please do. Karen is full of enthusiasm and energy…beware it may be infectious!

 

Karen and her young family are currently considering a move to Aberfeldy. If you know of a 4 or 5 bedroom house that might be coming to the market fairly soon, please could you let me know. Thank you.

  • PRAYER AT ABERFELDY PARISH CHURCH

Prayer is central to our relationship with our God and underpins everything we do in Aberfeldy Parish Church. How you can join with others to pray

Weekly Prayer Meeting on Wednesdays. Amazing things happen when the Church unites in prayer. Acts 12:5 tells us “Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to

God for him.” Peter was ,of course, miraculously released.
We gather together in Farragon in expectation of coming into the presence of God in worship and prayer, as we lay down our burdens for the world, for our mission and anything that troubles us and leave them at the foot of the cross .
Worship music will be played from 4.45pm to allow quiet meditation and we will move into prayer and further worship at 5pm. You are very welcome to join us but if you would like further information please contact isabellemacdonald222@btinternet.com or Donald Strathairn .

Prayer Points for the work of the Church are sent out weekly before the Wednesday meeting and, if you don’t already but would like to receive these please contact Kit Strathairn or Isabelle Macdonald.

Prayer before the Sunday Morning Service. If you would like to join in prayer for the morning service, please meet in the Prayer Room between 10.10 am and 10.20 am

Prayer Circle ⭕ If you, or someone you know needs prayer, whether it is a health matter or the circumstances of life, the Prayer Circle will be ready and willing to pray. Simply contact Isabelle on isabellemacdonald222@btinternet.com and an email will be sent out to the members of the Prayer Circle who will pray immediately and confidentially for your need.

If you would like to be part of the Prayer Circle please contact Isabelle Macdonald.

Prayer Ministry. The Prayer Ministry Team is available to pray for any need you have. Members of the team can be found at the back of the Sanctuary after the Morning Service and will be wearing a badge with a purple lanyard. Alternatively you can contact isabellemacdonald222@btinternet.com and a private appointment can be arranged.

Prayer for the Persecuted Church is normally on the first Monday of the month at 4 pm. Please contact Katie Allstaff, Kit Strathairn or Christina Bryson if you would like to join. We meet in an individual’s home.

Prayer Triplet - anyone who would like to be part of a Prayer Triplet please see Ruth Lunan

The Community Larder’s Social Supermarket 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. 

 

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.

Remember, this part of the Larder project is about reducing food waste as well as supporting those feeling the pinch in these difficult times.

 

If you know of anyone struggling to make ends meet, please let them know about the range of options 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 For emergency support call 0345 30 111 00 (Mon – Fri 9.00am – 5.00pm) or email breadalbanecommunitylarder@btinternet.com

 

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 your energy consumption and bills. 

 

There is now a Facebook page for Warm Connections     https://www.facebook.com/WarmConnectionsScotland. We would love it if anyone could share, like or comment
