While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” Matthew 26:26-28.

Sunday 19th Feb – Bible Study.  Our regular monthly Bible Study group met last Sunday evening to continue it’s in-depth look at the scriptures.

Thursday 23rd Feb – Women’s Association.  Our ladies had an enjoyable meeting on Thursday when they received an update on the work of CHAS (Children’s Hospice Association Scotland).  Over the past few years the Women’s Association have made several donations to help fund the work of CHAS, and it is always a delight to hear the latest news of what they are doing to help children who are suffering from terminal illness.
