Quote of the week:
The goal of the spiritual life is to allow the Spirit of Christ to influence all our activity, prayer as well as service. Our role in this process is to provide conditions in our lives to enable us to live in tune with [Christ’s] Spirit. Our effort is not a self-conscious striving to fill ourselves with the important Christian virtues; it’s more getting out of the way and allowing [Christ’s] Spirit to transform all our activities. Christ will do the rest. His Spirit has joined ours and will never abandon us.
Richard Hauser


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

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
