Kirkcudbright Churches Together. Report for Vestry Meeting 19th September 2019

 

Pentecost Service: This service was very well attended at Greyfriars, standing room only. The Parish Church Choir took part and Graham Finch gave a memorable sermon. Enjoyed by all.

An Ecumenical 24hr Prayer Vigil took part in the Parish Church in connection with Thy Kingdom Come.

The weekly Prayer Service held in Greyfriars on a Thursday at 11am continues.

In the last financial year over £2,300 has been raised for charities by Kirkcudbright Churches Together.

Songs of Praise at the Harbour Square was not as well attended this year, maybe lack of advertising in the Kirkcudbright magazine. The collection went to the Fishermen’s Mission.

Stewartry Food Bank: This continues to support families and single people in the Stewartry. People in the community are very generous with supplying food and donations. The week beginning 26th August 7 food parcels were supplied to families in the area.
