ST JOHN'S COMMUNITY CAFE hopes to provide a neutral place for church and community to connect and is run by volunteers whose aim is to provide a warm welcome and to support local causes.

 The Cafe is open every Friday from 10 am until Noon at 183 High Street.  Everyone is welcome, and we would love to see more of the community dropping in for a cuppa. Profits each month are donated to a local charity. The cafe is currently closed due to the pandemic but is funding coffees for those in need at other local cafes. 



 


Save your stamps!


At this time when so many cards and letters come through the post, please save all the stamps – even 2nd class. Your used stamps can help fund the Women’s Development Centre in Kandy, Sri Lanka, to support women who have survived sexual violence and family rejection and to help them return to education or learn new employment skills.

We’ll arrange a central collection point for your stamps in due course – or you can forward them now (by post!) to World Mission Stamp Project, PO Box 9191, Wishaw, Lanarkshire, ML2 0YB. Further information is available at https://www.churchofscotland.org.uk/serve/world-mission/get-involved/campaigns/stamp-appeal.

May





Christian Aid Week








Christian Aid Week 2021 will take place on 10-16 May, and with Covid-19 and continuing conflicts in so many parts of the world, the needs are as great as ever. While there will again be no door-to-door collection, e-envelopes will be available through churches and Facebook early in May. Please this year use an "e-envelope" as a way to support Christian Aid.


There are also plenty of ideas to spur your creativity and generosity on the Christian Aid website.
