Bible Readers’ Rota for 2018 – In order that the bible readers’ rota for 2018 can be prepared, can you please let Hazel Munro know by the end of November if you wish to either add or remove your name from the current list of weekly readers. It would be good to welcome new people to the list so please consider becoming involved in this part of service.

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER

This Saturday, 25th November, has been designated by the Church of Scotland as a National Day of Prayer. It is hoped that people all over the country will deliberately set aside during the day a little bit of time to be devoted to prayer. All of us here at Westburn are encouraged to join in this effort with people all over Scotland. Let us each just pray about something or someone that is important to us.

 

Westburn Plaques – There are many commemorative plaques around our church.  The names on these have been recorded and you can find them in a book on the table at the church library. Many of the plaques give names of those who fought and died for our country during WW1 and WW11.  It would be interesting to have more information about some of the people mentioned, so if you would like to share any of their stories, please get in touch.  Liz Smith ( lizsmithunion@gmail.com)
