“On the Road”  at St Columba’s, Wednesday 2nd November 2016, 6.35pm

The Church of Scotland is going ‘On the Road’ this autumn running a series of day and evening events across Scotland and beyond to listen to the voice of people in the local Church– to hear our views on what we need to do to enable a flourishing Church into the 2020s and beyond.

‘On the Road’ is a process designed to enable the national Councils, who exist only to support the local Church in its mission and ministry, to plan well for the future. Like every household throughout the land, they need to prioritise what they do and what they spend – and they need our ideas and wisdom to do that well. These events are an open invitation to everyone connected with the Church. Whether you are a regular worshiper, or an occasional attender; whether you take a leadership role in your local Church or simply drop in from time to time – ‘On the Road’ wants to hear from you. They want to hear from folks from every background and every congregation: don’t leave it to someone else – come and have your say! ‘On the Road’ will take time to listen to your thinking. It will also share some new ideas which the General Assembly has agreed we should try out, asking how you

respond to them. This process of listening and sharing will contribute to future planning – prioritising what we do to be more effective in supporting discipleship, mission and ministry. For more detail see http://www.churchofscotland.org.uk/connect/on_the_road

It is also requested that people “sign up” at the “book now” button on the website to indicate their attendance. This is not a ticket of admission but an indication to the organisers around logistics. (ie knowing how much material to print etc).

 

Meeting God in Paul

Prompted by Rowan William’s short book, Meeting God in Paul (cost: £8.99) we will meet for three evenings of Bible Study on the Apostle Paul.

Where: St Columba’s

When: 7pm on Tuesday 8th, Wednesday 16th and Tuesday 22nd November 2016. Please let the office know if you would like to take part (RSVP by Monday 31 October 2016) and if you would like to buy the book (helpful but not compulsory).

Vocations Conference  – Saturday 5th November 2016, The Royal George Hotel, Perth

In 2014 the Church of Scotland began to dream a dream of training 30 ministers per year, more than twice the average over the previous five years.  In 2015, even with the campaign launch part of the way through the year, we recruited 31 new candidates, 21 of them for the full-time Ministry of Word and Sacrament, an   increase of 50% on recent years.  We’re both thankful and ambitious, determined to build on that success and to find more Church members who may be inspired by those who have already said ‘Is it me, Lord?’ and willing to ask that question of themselves. The Vocations Conference is the vital and immensely useful first step for everyone sensing a calling to ordained ministry in the Church of Scotland. For more information see www.tomorrowscalling.org or ask the Ministers.

Bookstall
This week’s highlighted book, A Grief Observed deals with the very difficult issue of how one copes with the death of a loved one. The book is little more than an essay in which the author, CS Lewis, writes from very personal experience, following the loss of his wife Joy. This is not an easy acceptance of the situation from this very well known Christian. In fact the book was first published under a pseudonym because he was such a well known Christian writer and in this book he reflects the questioning, the hurt, the struggle that those who are grieving feel. This is a journal of his grief but it has wider relevance. Look out in the June copy of the St Columba’s magazine for our summer reading selection!

Service Unit – Entertainment Coordinator
Would you like to help out in a key Service Unit role?

We are looking for a member to join our existing team of seven. The focus of your role would be organising the entertainment for the spring, autumn and Christmas events. Recent entertainment has included in-house talent such as the St Columba’s Scottish Country Dancers, and singers and musicians from the congregation, as well as entertainers from elsewhere (a children’s gospel choir and young accordionists).

Your fresh ideas will be most welcome. Maybe you have contacts in the entertainment field? However, please be assured that you would be part of a close team in which we all help each other, so no worries if it’s something new to you. The four annual events (including the summer outing which does not require entertainment) take place on Saturdays c.2-5pm, and there are about four committee meetings per annum, on Sundays after the morning service.

The good news is that we have a full syllabus to December 2013. We will be delighted to welcome you aboard as soon as you wish to join, planning ahead, contributing to other committee matters and just seeing how we work.

Please contact Jim Blackwood (chairman):
email – aquatilis321@yahoo.com or telephone 07961 893295.

Second Hand Books
Thank you for all the books which have been handed in for the second hand bookstall in the Library. We are very grateful for all the donations but please no more donations until further notice.

Sunday School
It would be appreciated if parents could both take their children to Sunday School and collect them after the service.
