Five teams pitted their wits and scratched their heads over the range of brain teasers at the annual inter Penicuik churches quiz night on Monday 22nd May. Categories included History, British Isles geography, Acronyms, general knowledge, and of course the Bible. With a break half way for refreshments the evening was a great laugh and enjoyed by all. Full story soon.

Christian Aid  -  Sunday 21 May
We celebrated the end of Christian Aid Week by looking at the breadth of outreach the charity has achieved in over 60 years, and continues to achieve.

In the service, led by the Elders, as our minister Hugh was still on 'sick leave', and our Session clerk, Sandy Robertson, who would normally lead, was also incapacitated.

Eric Marchant closed our service with a superb review of the mornings service, leaving us with much to think about.

The Unforgiving Servant - 30 April

This months theme: Forgiveness – “The Unforgiving Servant”
We took the parable of the king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. A man who owed him ten thousand bags of gold was brought to him. Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt. At this the servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.  Full Story
Pastoral Visiting Team 
A caring team of people who visit folks we know about who are just home from hospital, or who are housebound, living alone, bereaved, unable to come to church or needing a bit of company for whatever reason.

PLEASE let us
know if you would like a visit or know of anyone else who does.  You can either phone Margaret Webster (672347), or fill in a Care Card (available at front and side entrances of church) and put it in the box in the vestibule.

The Card can also be used for prayer requests.
