Online Worship on Sunday mornings at 10.30am:

The services will be live-streamed on Zoom, available on computer or the phone, using the same contact details as over the past few months.

Stamps - Last year we collected used stamps for Crossreach and Damaris has kindly agreed to do that again, so please do save your stamps as it's an easy way to generate money for Crossreach. Please tear with a good margin around them. There is a box at the back of the church.

Phone-line 0131 378 7974: Jenny hopes to have new material based on the Sunday service available on the phone line by Tuesday each week. This gives you a way of accessing what happened during the service if you are unable to join "live" on a Sunday morning at 10.30. You should also be able to listen using a computer or tablet by clicking here. The service from 10th January should be available on the phone line now.

Edinburgh North West foodbank is missing us! Jenny has an email from them asking if we can continue with some support either by donating at supermarkets or making a one off or regular financial donation. The supermarkets in the north of the city which are affiliated are: Morrisons Granton, Waitrose & Partners Comely Bank and Marks & Spencer Craigleith. And you can visit their website here to make a financial donation. (They are now known as Edinburgh Food Project).
