Christmas Craft Workshop

We will be running a craft workshop in the parish room to make Christmas decorations on Saturday, 26 November from 2 – 4 p.m. This promises to be a fun and happy afternoon as we plan to create tree baubles, table candles, and Christmas logs that may be sold at the Christmas Fair on 3 December.  Tea, coffee, and biscuits will be served and all are welcome. All materials will be supplied by the church. Please contact Barbara at berginba@gmail.com if you think you and your children are able to come.

 

No Evensong 20 Nov. 2016

There is no Evensong on Sunday, 20 November 2016.

The parish is instead encouraged to join together in the ecumenical Walk of Light, which will begin at 4:00 p.m. at Saint Teresa’s Clarendon Street. The walk will move to Adelaide Road Presbyterian Church and end at the Methodist Centenary Church in Leeson Park.

Summer Music

We are grateful to members of the Elgin Chorale and the Chamber Choir and to the organists who provided music for the Sunday services during July and August. Maintaining good music during the summer months enhances the worship and is much appreciated. As autumn begins we welcome back the boys, girls and gentlemen of the Choir, and wish them well as they start into a new term after the summer break.

Confirmation

At this time of year the preparations for confirmations are underway. There will be a leaflet available at the back of the church explaining some of the details of confirmation which may help you in making a decision. If you would like to present yourself for confirmation in 2017, please let the Vicar know as soon as possible.
