The Christ Church congregation meets for coffee after both the 9.30 am service on Sunday and the 10.00 am service on Thursday and this is a good opportunity to chat and find out more. On this page you will find items of news and interest to the congregation.

PLANT SALE 11th May
10 am – 12 noon at Dalbeattie Town Hall
Our ever popular plant sale will be held on Saturday 11th May at Dalbeattie Town Hall. If you are a keen gardener, then this is the place to be. Likewise, if you are one of our contributors then now is the time to get into the greenhouse and sow some seeds. We are always pleased to receive plants for this event. If you would like to make such an offer, please get in touch with Jane Greenwood.
KNITTING – Squares for Healing Blankets & Knitting for the Mission to Seafarers
The work-box at the back of church for these two projects has been refilled with wool, patterns, needles and ribbon. Donations of wool, needles (sizes 8, 9 & 10) and ribbon will be gratefully received.
Jane Greenwood will take Healing Blanket Squares to make into blankets. After they are completed they return to church to be blessed and offered to those in need. There are always blankets available in church and anyone is welcome to take one away and give as a gift or use themselves.
BRASS CLEANING Can you help?
We urgently need help with cleaning the brasses in church. This is a small task which is not arduous or lengthy. If you could spare some time (half an hour usually does it) perhaps once a month, please contact Robin Charlton. All materials (and rubber gloves!) provided.
FLOWERS IN CHURCH
We are always pleased for any offers of flower arranging. No previous experience necessary, just a love of flowers. Please contact Julie Dennison if you would like to know more.
OUR LOCAL FOOD BANK NEEDS DONATIONS
Every week we collect items of food suitable for the food bank at Kirkcudbright. These can be placed in the boxes at the back of church. Jane Greenwood co-ordinates delivery of items to the Galloway Food Bank. It is requested that seasonal donations be made particularly as Christmas is coming. Please don’t overlook giving toiletry items – loo rolls, shampoo, soap, toothpaste and brushes; and kitchen necessities – washing powder, cleaning materials, washing-up liquid. These are also very much needed.
We, and many other local churches, contribute to the Galloway Food Bank on a weekly basis. It is always very busy and stocks need constant replenishment. Could you please try to donate some food to help alleviate the shortage? Please ensure at least six months before sell-by dates clearly indicated on each item.
Items may be left at the back of church either on Thursday (10am – 11am) or Sunday (9.00 – 11.00 am) mornings. You can also contact Jane Greenwood (01556 611144) and she will arrange collection.
