In previous years our individual congregations supported their vulnerable members and local charities with gifts and finance.
This year, as the united Cowal Kirk it has been decided to invite each member to contribute to a Christmas Appeal fund, which will be confidentially distributed to the deserving families in our area.
This could be a voucher for energy costs, or perhaps a chance to swim, go to the cinema, or buy groceries – all specific to their needs.
The Kirk Session has started the fund with £1,000.00 and the Augusta Lamont bequest has matched this.
Every member is cordially invited to contribute what they can by placing an envelope marked Christmas Appeal in their church offering plate: by handing an envelope thus marked to their elder or into the Wee Shop or by direct bank transfer – the bank details are in the Kirk News – under a label – Christmas Appeal.
