PRAYER MEETING: MONDAY IS THE NEW WEDNESDAY!

The weekly Prayer Meeting in East Calder is now on a Monday evening instead of a Wednesday evening. As before, time 7.30pm to 8.30pm in the Prayer Room at the back of the Church. Entry by the back door. Everyone very welcome.
During our time of vacancy, there is an additional Prayer Meeting at 2.30pm on the last Sunday afternoon of each month, when we can come together to pray and seek God’s blessing upon us as we go through the process of waiting for a new Minister to be called.
There is also an opportunity to come to the Prayer Room at close of Sunday worship in East Calder Church for individual confidential prayer.

CHURCH FAMILY OUTING

This will be after the Family Service on Sunday 25 June.
A bus is booked to take us to and from Scoughall again and is free, due to the success of our auction making enough to pay for this. Further information to follow about putting your name down but, for the time being, please put this date in your diary. The outing is for the whole Church family and is lots of fun. There are games, the beach, a bouncy slide and an indoor hall if need be. All you need is your picnic, rug, comfy shoes and lots of enthusiasm for a fun filled day. All welcome.

KOSY KAFF

The Kosy Kaff is still looking for volunteers to help and/or bake. We would hope to have sufficient help to ensure that each duty only comes around once in every 4-6 weeks.
Thank you to everyone who is already involved in this outreach.

THE SINGING GROUP

The Singing Group meets weekly throughout the year on Tuesday evenings at 7.45pm in Kirknewton Church for an hour of singing, laughter and fellowship followed by coffee and biscuits. Although primarily formed to rehearse the hymns for the Sunday services we also practise other music - spiritual, classical and popular. We aim to sing several pieces a year as a group at some of the important anniversaries within the Church, such as Easter and Christmas. We would love to welcome anyone who just likes to sing to come and join us any Tuesday evening.

EAST CALDER GALA DAY – SATURDAY 10 JUNE 2017

Gala Day is almost upon us and being one of KNEC’s main outreach events in the village, we would like to make it really count. Therefore, the Social & Community Committee requires your help to make it a memorable day.
How can you help?
1. Roll Making. We need volunteers to help make up the rolls at 8.30am in the Church Hall and a team to man the tea tent (even if you can only manage for 1hour) between 12.30pm and 4.00pm.
2. Donations of home baking, or a contribution of money towards the cost of provisions, would be greatly appreciated. It would be helpful if baking is brought along to the Church Hall between 7.00pm & 8.00pm on Friday night (9 June), between 8.00am and 10.30am on Saturday morning or directly to the Tea Tent between 11.30am & 12.30pm on Gala Day.
3. Tea Tent. We also require volunteers for putting up the tea tent and taking it down. Any help would be greatly appreciated, especially taking it down! (9.30am to put up the tent and 4.00pm to take it down.)
We would like to really appeal for lots of baking again this year as it is always popular and quickly runs out. Last year was amazing and people were in awe at the display of cakes so please help if you can!
*What do we need? – scones, pancakes, tea loaves, traybakes, sponges, cupcakes, tarts – anything would be great!!
*Who do we need? – YOU!
If you can help in any way, please give your name to any member of the Social and Community Committee. Only with your help can we make this a Great Gala event and outreach in our community!

WEST LOTHIAN FOODBANK (Reg Charity Number SC008274)

The organisers of the West Lothian Foodbank have informed us that they still have plenty of food on hand at this time. They would, however, greatly appreciate donations of the undernoted items:
Washing up Liquid; Toilet Rolls; Shaving Foam; Razors; Shower Gel; Deodorants; Nappies
These items can be left in the vestibule of either Church on Sunday mornings and will be delivered on your behalf.

As the Foodbank is very expensive to run, e.g. premises for storage, donations of money would be very gratefully received, in several ways shown on their website - https://westlothian.foodbank.org.uk/give-help
or, alternatively, you can pay directly into their Bank Account using a cheque or card in your Bank’s branch. The details you will need are: West Lothian Foodbank; Clydesdale Bank; Sort Code 82/70/05; Account no 80575476. If you can add your name as the reference this will really help them.
If you would prefer to send them a cheque, their address is: West Lothian Foodbank, 33 Market Place, Whitburn, West Lothian EH47 0EU.
