The AGM for the Friends of Garvald Church will be held on Wednesday 24th February at 7 pm via Zoom. If you would like to attend please fill in the contact form below and you will be sent a Zoom invitation.
We would like to share a short YouTube video, created by the ELC Communications team, ‘A festive message to our communities’, featuring the EL Provost, John McMillan and the Lord Lieutenant, Michael Williams, reflecting on this unprecedented year we are about to leave (thank goodness) thanking communities, throughout East Lothian during COVID 19, for their enthusiasm, commitment and extraordinary efforts:
Thanks to everybody who came out yesterday and contributed in any way to our Christmas event. It was great to feel part of a small community again (although slightly scary to see so many people in one place, even if it was outside!) A special thanks and welcome to all the newcomers. For those of you who are ill or vulnerable and couldn’t join us – we missed you.
Thanks to Peter and Elaine for delicious soup and mince pies.
Thanks to our Buskers in the bus-shelter and and the Little Drummer Boy in the van
Thanks to Murray and Tracey for the use of their gazebo – it will probably never be quite the same again.
Thanks to Liz for masterminding the whole thing, and particularly the wooden decorations for the tree – there are more available from Kirklands, beside the Church.
Thanks for all the raffle prizes and your enthusiastic participation in that activity – we raised a stunning £264.80 for Crisis, the homeless charity.
Wishing everyone a very Happy and Healthy Christmas.
Sunday 13th December: 3rd Sunday in Advent. 9.30 am service in Garvald Church Sunday 20th December: 4th Sunday in Advent. 9.30 am service in Morham Church Thursday 24th December : Christmas Eve service in Garvald Church at 6.00 pm. We will play recordings of carols and you can hum along behind your masks. Members of the congregation will do readings of the Christmas story. For the final carol, weather permitting, we would like to go outside the church, spread out as much as we can and gently sing. Christmas Eve Watchnight Service in Morham Church at 11.30 pm will follow the same plan. To guarantee a space in the church at either or both of the Christmas Eve Services please use the contact form below. We will endeavour to fit in any late arrivals but the capacity of each church is significantly reduced right now.
Christmas Eve collections will be in aid of Leuchie House
