The Great Giveaway - 24 June
Messy Church theme on Sunday 24th was 'the great giveaway'. Based on Mark 10, the crafts focused on what we can do for others rather than for ourselves. A sketch played out in the
church at celebration time reinforced the message. A great BBQ under the blazing sunshine in the garden added to the fun of the afternoon. Full story soon. 
Summer Fair - 16 June

A great crowd visited St. Mungo's church hall on Saturday 16 to be tempted by the wide range of items on display. Home baking, bottle stall, knitting, books, jigsaws, tombola, birthday and special occasion cards, plus of course the raffle. A special 'guess the teddy bears name?' saw a few heads being scratched! Refreshments always at hand.
God's Complete Knowledge and Care  - 17 June
Psalm 139 set the theme for the service on Sunday 17 June. John introduced  the theme through using a quote from Douglas Adams Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,  'Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is, and 
how mind boggingly big God is. But that God knows us intimately, everything we do, and believe.
Sponsored Walk - Saturday 9 June

The sun shone on the 11 walkers, and Rosie the dog, as they set off from St. Mungo's to walk the Tweed valley from Cardronna to Innerleithen. Along the river and over the hills, with a call for ice creams at Caldwells in Innerleithen made it a great day out, with some walkers turning out in their shorts. Full story and pictures
