We are looking for new items – first size packs of nappies, wipes, cotton wool, baby bath and moisturiser, bibs, first size socks, 0-3 months (and older) outfits, hand knitted cardigans, blankets,bottles,dummies and 0+ months soft toys. At this season when we are thinking of welcoming our Saviour as a baby why not give a wee something to help welcome a baby into our community.

The Church of Scotland is taking a long term approach to tackling inequality and injustice. Over the next 10 years it will bring about change in some of the most critical issues facing our nation and planet. It wants the people of Scotland to help to set these priorities. The Church of Scotland want to hear from you so now you have the opportunity to let your voice be heard.
All you need to do is complete a Speak Out postcard in no more than 20 words telling the Church of Scotland what one key issue you think needs addressed.
On Sunday 29 November we invite you stay behind and over a cup of tea/coffee fill in a postcard. These postcards are anonymous and will be returned to the Church of Scotland immediately after the service. They will gather everyone’s suggestions and identify no more than 6 key areas for action and are committed to bringing these changes about – locally, nationally and internationally – in every part of Scotland, for at least the next 10 years.
Start thinking now what issue you would like addressed and fill in the postcard on the 29th.
