WARM SPACE DROP-IN CENTRE

With the increase in energy prices and the price of just about everything else, we are aware that some people might be looking for a warm space outside their home in which to spend some time this winter. So the church has arranged to open up the Hub every Thursday afternoon from 2.00-4.00 for folk to drop in for a cuppa, a chat or to play some board games, etc.  Some have already volunteered to come along and be with the minister in the Hub. If you would like to help out (main quality required is a desire to listen and chat to people), please let Gary know before the first session on Thursday 10th November. Alternatively, feel free to drop in yourself any Thursday.

 

QUIZ NIGHT

After making do with online quizzes for the last two years, the famous Murrayfield Quiz Nights are back, albeit at a new venue. Our first "live" quiz is on Friday 11th November in the Ladywell Church Hall at 7.30pm. Admission is £4 and includes tea and biscuits, etc. The venue may be new but the question compiler and inquisitor certainly aren't! Invite your friends and neighbours. It should be a fun night - and you might even learn something!

 

CHRISTMAS SHOEBOXES

We are once again supporting the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal. If you would like to pack a shoebox you can bring it along to the church service any Sunday up to 20th November, or if you would like someone to collect your shoebox please contact Ann Lomax (Tel No 811364). Alternatively, we have set up a Murrayfield 'Goal' Page on the Samaritans Purse Operation Christmas Child website and, if you have access to the internet, you can pack a shoebox online by using the following link

This is where we had our last Christmas lunch in 2019 and just upstairs (or lift) from where many of us had our covid vaccinations.The cost for a three course lunch (including tip) is £21. If you would like to go, please give your name to Ann Lomax by 16th November and money by Sunday 27th November.
