Congratulations to our young Messy Church member Natalie who came up with the idea of having a “reverse” advent calendar this year. Instead of getting chocolates from her advent calendar she thought it would be a good idea to donate something every day for foodbank. Messy church thought it was a great idea and with all the families and a few others joining in they collected an amazing amount for foodbank. See our gallery page for pictures and to see just how much they donated to Perth Foodbank.
There will be a watchnight service in Dunning on Christmas Eve at 11.30pm and a Service at 11.00am in Dunning at 11.00am.

We are aiming to become a Fair Trade Church and we now have a fair trade stall selling fairly traded tea, coffee, biscuits, chocolates and gifts on Sunday morning after church in Dunning (in the hall). We can also order from a large range of goods in the catalogue. Profits will be divided between church funds and a suitable charity.
A reminder that any donations of food for the Perth and Kinross Food Bank can be left at the collection point in the church hall in Dunning. To find out what can be donated check the shopping list
