Thanks to Pat Duncan for compiling Keeping you in the Loop.  You can click on the link and it is also posted under Guild.  Thanks also to Heather for distributing National Magazine through our letter boxes.  The icy conditions must have made the mission twice as difficult!

Community Walk with Lessons and Carols

ENJOY LESSONS AND CAROLS AS YOU WALK
Gathering together to sing our favourite carols this year is not possible.
But that does not mean we cannot enjoy our favourite carols.

With your SMART PHONE  follow the trail of nine posters round the village.

They are to be found on special posts, fences and lamp posts!

From Friday the 18th to Sunday  27th  December
Each poster has a short passage about the Christmas story, a verse of a carol
and a QR code that takes you to a YouTube recording of the carol.

There are two trails;
In Braco, start at the Church Hall
In Greenloaning, start at the Back Entrance to the School

You will find instruction as to where to find the next carol on each poster.

Salvation Army Gift Collection

Salvation Army Gift Collection

The gift collection arranged by Ann Spiers has been an enormous success and she wishes to thank everyone.

Because of your generosity 111 people will enjoy an surprise gift for Christmas and know that someone has thought about them.

Easyfundraising

Whilst supporting our local suppliers, shops and trades is vitally important, I know over the past months many of us, who would not normally order online, have been grateful for the opportunity to have goods delivered when many outlets and shops were closed or had very restricted access.

Whenever you buy anything online – electrical goods, online groceries, DIY supplies, Christmas presents, your annual holiday (wishful thinking), car insurance renewal – you could be raising free donations for Ardoch Parish Church with Easyfundraising.

This is not something new and for a number of years now Ardoch Church members has used this site to collect donations.

There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including John Lewis, Sainsburys, Tesco, M&S  Smile Amazon and it does not cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.  Each donation may only amount to less than 50p but these small amounts accumulate and can become quite a significant sum.

There are no catches or hidden charges and Ardoch Parish Church will be most grateful for your donations.  The only thing you must remember to do is sign into the Easyfundraising site and click on the supplier from within the site.

To get started copy this link and register.

Every time you shop online, you must log in to Easyfundraising first , then find the site you want and start shopping. After you’ve checked out, the retailer will make a donation to Ardoch Parish Church at no extra cost to you whatsoever!

Thank you for your support.

Edith’s Hope

Edith’s Hope

Ardoch Church received a letter from Edith’s Hope thanking us for generous donation detailed below and assuring us of how much it was appreciated and the good that it will do.

The Harvest Thanksgiving collection for Edith’s Hope raised the sum of £340.

This will be a great help to the orphans and child headed families in Uganda as they struggle to cope with uncertainties of the pandemic.

This sum does not include the very generous donation of £150 given by the Guild.

We will try to keep you updated through our website of any significant updates as Edith’s Hope actively supports 60 families where both parents have died and left the eldest child alone to raise their brothers and sisters.

For more information check out their website www.edithshope.org
