Posted: 12 June 2019

Thanks to generous contributions to the monthly collection in June, general supplies are again in a healthy state.

The only specific things likely to be needed next month are shampoo and spreads - savoury (such as meat or fish paste) and sweet (such as jam, honey etc).

Happy Pentecost!

Posted: 11th June 2019

Sunday, 9th June was certainly a happy Pentecost as members from all three churches in Kirkcudbright, Greyfriars, the Parish Church and St Andrew's & St Cuthbert's, joined together in Greyfriars to celebrate Pentecost. Our rector, Stephen, led the service following a Matins liturgy, Revd Graham Finch preached and David Prescott led the intercessions. After enjoying tea and coffee in the church, people were invited to a BBQ, provided by the Rotary Club, on Mote Brae.

Well done, Doreen!

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Posted: 31st May 2018

As you may be aware, the law regarding data protection is changing and the new EU legislation came into effect on 25th May 2018. The GDPR replaces the UK Data Protection Act and is a really positive step towards individuals having more control over how their data is used and how they are contacted.

The rector, vestry secretary and treasurer would like you to know that any of your personal information that may be held for church purposes is kept safely and will not be shared with any third party. This policy statement can now be found on the 'Vestry Matters' page.
