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

There will be a Retiring Collection for the Bible Society today.

If you would like to contribute a shoebox to the Blythswood Care Appeal for this year, please see the poster on the lit noticeboard or the St J’s website, pick up a checklist for box contents at the back of the church and speak to Ann Beaton. We don’t have much time: the van leaves the Tesco Extra carpark in Dumfries at 15.45 on Monday, 01/11/2021 (that’s tomorrow, assuming you’re reading this on Sunday). There are collections from Kirkcudbright and Kilmarnock a day or two later, but it would be best if we could meet the Dumfries one. At this notice and in the present circumstances, shoe boxes are not that easy to find. There are some (slightly limited) alternatives. Please ask.

Sunday, 07/11/2021 will be observed as All Saints at the 11.00 Eucharist. All Souls will be observed, on the same day, at Evensong. Cards for the names of loved ones to be particularly remembered on this day are available at the back of the church.

We have restarted our regular collection of items for First Base Food Bank. There are some stackable crates beside the lit noticeboard just inside the glass doors, into which items can be placed.

The Vestry agreed at its last meeting to appoint Billy Dewar-Riddick as our new  PVG Co-ordinator. Due to Billy’s forthcoming surgery and recuperation, Linda Scott will act for the next few months as the PVG Co-ordinator until Billy’s return. Meantime, our thanks to Alicen Byers for all her work in this post over a number of years.

A reminder of the MU Eucharist on 4th November at 2pm in the Church, followed by refreshments in the Hall. All are welcome at this.

Sunday, 14/11/2021 will be observed as Remembrance Sunday. Please note the service will start at the earlier time of 10.15am.

MU  and WOMENS’ AID: Over the Covid lockdown period, MU has managed to stay in contact with WA ,albeit in a limited capacity.   Earlier this year, MU donated money to the WA emergency fund and we also managed to gather together enough toiletries to donate a dozen toilet bags in August.   Now however the cupboard is bare!     We would be very grateful for any donations from the congregation. The “Core Items” for the bags are —

Shower Gel, Shampoo, Flannel, Deodorant, Toothpaste and Toothbrush.   We also like to add a “ luxury” item for eg hand cream, comb/ brush.

Coming up to Christmas, we like to give handbag – size diaries for the ladies. These are important for keeping track of important meetings with social services etc.   Any unwanted gifts are also welcome and can be used for Christmas presents.

Our local WA  branch, in common with the national picture has been extremely busy and for the first time a waiting list for accommodation has had to be implemented.

While the WA basket seems to have disappeared, there is a large white box at the back of the hall where any donations can be placed. Thank you.

Advance Notice of the Diocesan Advent Quiet Day, to be delivered on Saturday, 11/12/2021, via Zoom, 10.00 – 12.45, entitled God Has Visited His People. More details on the lit noticeboard and the St J’s website.
