Snippets From The Manse

 

Here comes summer………

 

This is always a great opportunity to thank everyone involved with the printing, the articles, the collating and distribution of the magazine. Thanks also to leaders and others alike for their work of different guises from one summer to the next. We need to wind down, take a break and enjoy some hoped for sunny days. God bless and thanks.

 

Wings crossed………

 

Further spiking had to be added to the church steeple area regarding pigeons. This has been an on-going saga which I hope will now curtail much of their activity and potential damage to stonework that their presence can lead to. They have proved to be determined birds to deal with. That said, they are being a right menace along the High Street. And the roof of Castle Rock Housing next to the church hall is a mess on the east facing part of the roof….tapping the windows of residents at five in the morning for a blether!!! They are also building nests under the solar panels! Maybe they are after free electricity!!

 

Church Holiday 2017……

 

Balance of payment is now due, please make cheques payable to ‘Glenton’ and refer to the recent flyer about what you are due to pay. This is shaping up to be one of the best so far……and I am still being asked where the mystery tour is taking us!!

 

Summer programme……

 

From Sunday 11th June services are at 10.00am & 11.00am.

 

Another milestone……

 

The manse family will witness another unique occasion when I will conduct the wedding service of Lisa and Craig on Saturday 17th June. The press latched on to this when Louise was married……..the headline read ‘minister marries daughter!’ I have been commanded to wear my kilt….which will be a pleasure and an honour.

 

As I go to press……….

 

Due to illness a double room has come up for the church holiday. This is open to anyone who wishes to go……get in touch with me asap. Seating tickets will be issued soon.
