Holiday Club 'Teambuilders' - 6 to 10 August
This year's Summer Holiday Club, "Teambuilders", runs from 6th to 10th August in the North Church. On the afternoon of Sunday 5th August we will be transforming the North Church into a sports stadium crowded with a large number of spectators.

For this we need your help. We will
decorate the walls with as many "faces" as possible. These should be made from paper plates, old CD's or any other round shape which can be easily stuck onto a flat surface. They can be as simple or as fancy as you like - we need lots!   Find out how YOU can help 

What's Important to You? - 15 July
St. Mungo's elder Joan Cape led the service on Sunday 15 July, taking the theme 'What's important to you?'.  Using the All age spot Joan described what others have said was important, while our congregation was asked to write down on a piece of paper what was important to them. Joan would come back to that later but talked of the wide range of 'things' that people find important above all others.
The sermon talked of the will to win, using Wimbledon and the football world cup as examples. This led on to the dilema of the rich man giving all his 'things' away to follow Jesus, and what that means.

Farewell to Lynsay Downs - 8 July
Sunday 8 July 
is Rev Lynsay Downs’ last Sunday as Rector at St James the Less. Let’s thank God for all He has done through her while she has been in Penicuik, and ask Him to bless her new ministry at St Ternan’s, Banchory. The congregation of St. Mungo's wish her well as she takes up her new charge on 1st August.

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 
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.
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.
