Harvest

Sunday 16 September 2018

 

11 a.m.

Harvest Thanksgiving

in aid of the

Trussell Trust Local Foodbank

Come and join us this Sunday at 11 a.m. for our Harvest Thanksgiving service.

We will be gathering in the harvest that we are donating to the local Trussell Trust Foodbank, and blessing it as it goes.

This week we will be looking at the real miracles as Jesus feeds the 5000, the first miracle is that Jesus actually cared for those on the sidelines…because first century gods were for the rich and powerful not people like that crowd.

The second miracle, in loving your neighbour and sharing what you have, there is harvest enough for all. This is not a story of a magician who exponentially increased loaves and fish…it a story of compassion, loving your neighbour, relationships and sharing.

So come you thankful people come…let us love, care and share and there will be a harvest for all.  See you on Sunday…it’s going to be great!

Houston & Killellan Kirk Carnival 2018

 

A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED ORGANISE THE 2018 KIRK CARNIVAL AND THOSE WHO CAME ALONG.

 

The Kirk Carnival is a massive team effort and we are hugely grateful to the Carnival Committee and the very willing groups behind them who have worked so hard. We achieve so much as a team and it has been a real pleasure to be joint coordinators. Special thanks are due to last year’s coordinators Jim McLaughlin and Kate Jackson for their support.

 

We have raised money this time for “Kirk and Community Projects” and we have provided a showcase for the activities of the Kirk.

An up-to-date total will be shown by clicking on the CARNIVAL icon on the homepage.

2018 Carnival photos can be viewed under Photo/Video --> Photographs --> Carnival 2018.

 

Mike Farley and Maggie Deans

Joint Coordinators

We are looking for volunteers to sell advertising for the Carnival Programme and also looking for new businesses and organisations who might want to advertise in this year's programme. 

 

Please contact Bill Manley if you are able to help/wish to advertise.

Sunday 2 September 2018

Come and join us this Sunday at 11 a.m. for a busy all-age service.

 

We celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism; we look forward to welcoming baby Jessica’s friends and family to the service.

It is also our cradle roll service, and Sunday Club re-dedication service, as we celebrate those who have been baptised in the past and look forward to worshipping and growing with our young church in the future.

In baptism, song and drama, we will look at the significance of promises…the daily ones we make and break…the one’s we all make in baptism…and the one Jesus gives that he will be with us always.

Come along and join us you are…it’s for all ages…it’ll be chaos …but we can promise it’ll be fun!
