A huge thank you to everyone who participated whether by praying, donating or both!

We raised the fantastic sum of £183 and a few pennies, which is truly amazing.

Café Church …

We sang some lovely hymns, whilst at the same time enjoying freshly made scones and mince pies.

Happy New Year, everyone.

Café Church

Our service tomorrow in Canonbie will be a time of reflection and thanksgiving, and will be an informal café-style service. Come along and share with us your favourite hymn, reflect on your journey in 2018, or share your hopes for 2019.

Refreshments will be served and everyone is welcome.

We had a great service this morning led my Rev Pauline Steenbergen. A particular highlight of the service was a wee sketch performed by Joy Lang and Lis Findlay, about two angels and their search for Mary.

We also took a few minutes to remember those we have loved and lost, writing their names on blue hearts and hanging them on the tree.

Our next service is tomorrow evening at 8pm, nine lessons and carols, and then a short service at 10am on Christmas morning.

Everyone is welcome!

Samaritans helpline

It’s that time of year where it all gets too much for some. Christmas is a lot of pressure to be perfect, happy gorgeous families in matching pj’s. No one is having a drunken row or feeling lonely on the adverts.

The Samaritans, have a free number – 116 123 (UK). A simple copy and paste might save someone’s life. Don’t suffer in silence.

Stuart Campbell made a public profession of his faith on Sunday morning in front of God and Canonbie congregation, and by doing so became a member of Canonbie Church.

The promises he (and the congregation) made are worth thinking about.

Do we promise to befriend, love, support and pray for each other? Easily said, harder perhaps to follow through, but it is what Christ calls us to do, to love one another.

Blue Christmas

Sunday 23rd December 2018 at 10am Liddesdale Parish Church and 11.30am Canonbie United Parish Church. All ages welcome.
