Quote of the week:
The world is created as a means of God’s self-revelation so that, like a mirror or footprint, it might lead us to love and praise the Creator. We are created to read the book of creation so that we may know the Author of Life. – Ilia Delio

the gathering
Learn about Christian Aid’s key issues, meet supporters, get new fundraising ideas and hear all about Sierra Leone. See poster on notice board 27th Feb, 10am-1pm, Holburn West Church, Aberdeen

A new initiative started by Sally Magnusson - Playlist for life – is hoping to set up locally. Several churches are involved in a pilot program, and with 1 or 2 volunteers, we could join in. It uses music to engage and involve those with dementia. Training is provided and the commitment is possibly one evening a month. See Gillean for info information

This year the World Day of Prayer service is written by the women of Slovenia and the theme is “Come, Everything is Ready”.
Please come along – everyone is welcome

Diddy Disciples:
A new group aimed at toddlers and primary age children, meeting on the first Sunday of the month at 12md in Pitmedden Church. Songs, stories and crafts. Under 5s need to bring a carer but older ones can be left and collected at 1pm. Anyone wishing to volunteer as a helper, please see Gillean
