Blythswood Shoe Box Appeal Collection
7th October 2018
Blythswood Care

Please bring your filled shoebox to church on Sunday, 11th November as there will not be a service in church on Sunday, 4th November. If that date is not suitable, you can bring your box when it suits, but not too early as the boxes have to be stored in the church until they are uplifted by the lorry on Monday, 12th November. If you intend to fill a shoebox please take a covered box from the church vestibule or from the Methven Hall as soon as possible. Thank you for taking part in this appeal.

November Joint Service
30th September 2018
Bennochy Church

Every 10 years each presbytery is visited by the moderator of the General Assembly. This year it is the turn of Kirkcaldy Presbytery. On Sunday 4th November, the moderator, Susan Brown, minister of Dornoch Cathedral, will lead worship in Kirkcaldy Linktown church. It has been agreed by all the Kirk Sessions in Kirkcaldy that this will be a joint service, so there will be no service in Bennochy Church that Sunday.

This is a great opportunity for all the churches to come together. We want to make sure that everyone who wishes to attend can do so. If you have room to give someone a lift, or need a lift, please let Robin or one of the office-bearers know. Our plan is to fill Linktown Church, and it is a big church to fill!

Can you or a friend (or both!) spare a few hours on a Thursday once or twice a month?

We need volunteers in the kitchen, serving customers and to help with tidying away tables and chairs etc.

If you are interested and would like to know more, please speak to Alison Hamilton (Open Door Project) or any of the enthusiastic volunteers in the congregation!

Thank You from Kirkcaldy Foodbank
2nd September 2018
Kirkcaldy Foodbank

Kirkcaldy Foodbank would like to thank you on behalf of the volunteers and those who find themselves in the desperate position of having to seek help from the foodbank.

The number of client visits to the Foodbank has remained over 600 since November 2017 (other than in December, when the Foodbank was closed for over a week); in April 2018 it was over 700 for the first time; and in May 2018 it was over 800 (805) for the first time.

Our aim continues to be to feed those families and individuals who are hungry and cannot afford to feed themselves for a variety of reasons. Times are tough and some people in the local community are struggling to put food on the table. There are so many other financial demands to keep a roof over their heads. Some may be working but simply not able to survive on the minimum salary they receive – others may be temporarily out of work and falling into the ‘pit’ of delayed or sanctioned benefit payments.

If anything this crisis has increased since we set up and your donations of food are very much appreciated and vital if we are to continue to tackle it until other avenues can be found to ensure people do not find themselves in these critical situations.
