Christmas is not far away and it is time again to think of those less fortunate than ourselves so we will be doing the shoe boxes appeal again this year. If you fill a box then please bring to Rorison on Sunday 5th November. The Communion service will be held in Rorison due to the decorating of the Church at Dalserf.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Valerie Holmes who is presently in Wishaw General and John Grove who unfortunately has shingles.

DATES AND ARRANGEMENTS FOR INTERIOR PAINTING OF DALSERF
Monday 23rd October help from members would be greatly appreciated to clear the Church. Time proposed 9am. It is thought that this will take a few hours, so if you wish to bring a packed lunch then tea and coffee will be provided in Hamilton Hall.
Painters will begin either 24th or 25th October. Not sure how long painting will take. When painters are finished it is proposed to employ a professional cleaning company.
Services at Rorison will be Sunday 29th October at 11.30am
Sunday 5th November (Communion) at 11.30am
Sunday 12th November at 11.30am
Restoring of the Church contents possibly Monday 13th November again at 9am. Tea and coffee will again be provided in Hamilton Hall.
It is hoped to be back in Dalserf on Sunday 19th November but this will depend on how long the painting and cleaning takes.
