SERMONS ONLINE: The text of the full sermon, preached at the later service, is available on our website.
FAMILY SERVICE: After Christmas, I am hoping to change the format of the early service in order to better accommodate the children. I am due to be in discussion with the Sunday School staff and members of the Worship Committee in order to take soundings. It seems important to pitch the service in such a way that the children are welcomed and valued and also that adults receive worship appropriate for them. Together we are on a journey and I would ask for your support, encouragement and grace as we work to evolve the service. The Minister.
FLOWER CALENDAR: for 2020 is now in place in the Carrick Park Vestibule. If you would like to donate flowers in memory of a loved one or to mark a special occasion, please add your name and telephone number to your chosen Sunday.
NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS – a huge thank you to everyone who donated boxes and extra items for the Charity. 123 Boxes were uplifted. The Charity is so grateful for your support.
ALTERNATIVE GIFT CARDS – please think about giving a life changing gift of seeds and fertilisers to support struggling farmers in Malawi. This can be achieved through the £5 gift cards which are available from the church office.
LIFE & WORK: Pre-ordered copies of the December edition are available for uplifting at the main door of the Church, along with extra copies priced £2.80.
