And, as always, if you need us, you can contact

Annual General Meeting: The AGM will take place on the 26th September as usual in the context of the 11am service. The formal notice is on the noticeboard at the back of the church. We will need to elect 4 Vestry members and the Lay Representative, the Alternate Representative and the representative to the Regional Council. Nomination papers are on the table at the back of church. If you cannot attend the AGM and would like your apologies noted, please sign the apologies sheet (also on the table at the back). The AGM papers are available, whether you can attend the meeting or not. If you cannot attend but would like a copy, please let us know, on the sheet, stating whether you would like a paper copy or to receive them by email. We will use the contact details you have provided for the database.

Refreshments after today’s service (Sunday, 12/09/2021) will be available, as last week, in the Hall. Mostly, you need to be seated, though you can come up to the serving table to be…well, served. Please follow the directions as to how this will work. Things may be slightly limited in scope, at least for the time being, partly due to Covid and partly because we’re just getting going again and are short of volunteers. If this is something you could help with, please don’t hesistate! Speak to Jenny Lawson or David Kerr.

The Scottish Episcopal Institute says…Please pray for those to be ordained to the Diaconate and licensed to Lay Readership, Michaelmas 2021: Lisa Curtice, Claire Nicholson, Lesley Penny, Philip Schonken and Sandra Wright. Further details can be found on the lit noticeboard, or the website (www.stjohnsdumfries.org)

September 2021 News from the Scottish Episcopal Institute can be found on the lit noticeboard and also the St J’s website (www.stjohnsdumfries.org). The office can also provide paper copies on request.

News from Bethany Christian Trust can be viewed on the lit noticeboard.

From Harvest Sunday (03/10/2021), we plan to restart our regular collection of items for First Base Food Bank. Current intention is that there will be some stackable crates beside the lit noticeboard just inside the glass doors, into which items can be placed. Keep an eye out and watch for further announcements.

Short mat Bowling resumes in the hall on Tuesday 14th of September at 7:15pm. Contact Ashley Cross or the Church Office for details.

Quiz night in the hall on Friday 24th September at 7:30pm. Contact Carolynne Sorrell, Ashley Cross or the Church Office.

Simon Lidwell says…A CLC (Christian Life Community) group would start with a focus on Ignatian spirituality but is described more generally as [meeting] in small groups to pray share and share, supporting one another through the ups and downs of ordinary life. In listening to one another, we grow to understand ourselves, deepen our relationship with God and discover more clearly how each one of us is uniquely called to respond to God’s love.
The first couple of meetings could be an opportunity to hear more about the idea, listen to people’s past experiences of this type of prayer and go away to try them in everyday life. We would keep the group small – about eight people – and have a Zoom link for those that can’t get there in person. If Zoom is popular, or we get more than eight people, we form more online and in person groups.
