Remembrance Service

A Service of Remembrance will take place at Garvald Church on Sunday 14th November at 9.30 am. The service will begin outside the Church at the War Memorial, and those who wish may then continue with the rest of the service inside the Church.

Tea and Coffee will be available afterwards in The Stables.

It has also been decided that we may return to our great tradition in Garvald of the Church being open to everyone, every day. Please take the chance to visit the church as often as you like since it is looking increasingly likely that the Church of Scotland will sell Garvald Church within the next few years.

Harvest Food Bank

The Harvest Thanksgiving Service will take place in Garvald Church on Sunday 31st October at 9.30 am. We would like to collect donations for the Food Bank from anyone in the Church or Village who would like to help. There is a green plastic box sitting in the bus-shelter beside the Village Green where donations of non-perishable food or toiletries may be left at any time. The box will be emptied regularly and everything transferred to the Church from where it will be taken to the Food Bank after 31st October. We had a fantastic response last time we did this so please help with anything you can spare.

27th October – Thanks so much for all the donations so far – please keep them coming

Christian Aid Week 2021 – Focus on climate crisis

10 – 16 May 2021

This climate crisis hurts us all. But people living in poverty fight the worst of it every day.

Christian Aid Week

From drought to flooding, climate change robs people of control over their lives. Extreme weather means people like Rose are struggling to survive without a reliable source of water.

Your gift could help a community build an earth dam, so when the rains do come, they will have the water they need to live. A reliable source of water will help families withstand long drought or relentless rainstorms.

Every envelope. Every gift. Every challenge can change lives.

Christian Aid envelopes will be delivered through your letterboxes over the next couple of days. Please donate whatever you can.  Due to Covid 19 it has been decided that volunteers will not be knocking on your door to collect the envelopes but you can either deliver them yourself to The Old Schoolhouse, Garvald – there will be a collection bucket at the door.

Or you can donate on-line. https://www.christianaid.org.uk/

Or you can complete the form below asking for your donation envelope to be collected.

Thank you !

    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.
