Blythswood Shoebox Appeal 2019

Please could you join us by filling a Shoebox for children, men or women for the Blythswood Christmas shoebox appeal? These boxes are sent to Eastern Europe for families living in a huge amount of poverty and they go straight to the families.
Leaflets can be picked up from our church when the Newhaven Connections cafe is open; Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10-3:30pm. Please follow the instructions carefully on the leaflet and remember to enclose £3.50 to help with transport costs.
Please hand any shoeboxes in to the church the week beginning 28th October or even better come and join us at our shoebox service on Sunday 3rd November at 10:30am. This will be an All Age service followed by brunch. Shoeboxes must be handed in by then, at the latest, for collection by Blythswood first thing on Monday morning.
Please spread the word and invite others to do a box and bring it to the service.

Harvest & Big Bake

In amidst the warm Saturday sunshine was the crunching and smell of autumn leaves. There is something beautiful about Edinburgh as the seasons change, in the dying back of the leaves and trees moving into a state of dormancy, we get such beauty of vivid colours and delicious fruit to eat. Come celebrate God’s creation with us on Sunday 6th October starting at 10:30am and ponder a bit about Tearfund’s theme ‘Less is More.’ At our all-age service this day we will be taking a dry goods collection for the Northeast Edinburgh foodbank, our annual offering for Tearfund, and our annual big bake will occur with the theme ‘5 ingredients or less’ just after the service alongside brunch! Do bring containers if you wish to take baking away. Please see the fliers below for full details. HarvestAdvert
