At the back of the church from today there are two sign-up sheets on which people are asked to write their names if they would like a lift to this service or if they can offer spaces in a car.
The Aviemore Foodbank is hoping to make up some festive food parcels to help families who will not be able to have anything special to eat at Christmas. The items needed are in a list at the back, but they need to be brought to church next Sunday – later will be too late.
A new online Advent calendar will bring the true spirit of Christmas to life with 25 specially created videos made by members of the Church of Scotland ministries team. Each of the thought provoking, often hard-hitting, films feature trainee ministers, probationers, a deacon and youth workers from across the country who reflect on a word that symbolises the true meaning of the season. You can read more and sign up for your Online Advent Calendar now on our home page.
