found the confidence to attend Sunday morning worship in recent months
we hope you will consider joining us for the short Summer Afternoon
Service to be led by our Minister, Revd Dr Sandy Forsyth, on Tuesday 12
July at 2.30pm.
We meet in the Bill McDonald Hall via West Mayfield level access.
Proceedings usually finish around 3.45pm. You might find this less formal
worship style a good way to return to the fold and to renew friendships.
We all remain seated at our tables for 4 to 6 people throughout the
afternoon and share light refreshments together.
For further information please speak with Kay or your Pastoral Visitor (PV) -
or Anne Sturrock. However, Kay would appreciate having your name in
advance if you intend to be present so that we can plan seating and
catering. Kay’s number is 07587 043 191. Everyone always made most welcome

discussions, prepare food, play games or get crafty? Do you have 1-2 hours

evenings for ages P6-S1 and S2-S6. We are looking for volunteers who
would be interested in becoming a part of the team and helping to nurture
the faith of our young people! Volunteers would be helping our youth
leader run each session with a variety of activities, including sport, games,
craft, discussion, etc. To find out more about this opportunity and to ask
any questions, Hillary will be holding an informal meeting over coffee

12. UKRAINE It is difficult to remind ourselves as we enjoy time outside
(albeit recently under grey skies) in the eastern part of Ukraine there is no
peace as shells rain down indiscriminately on people, buildings and fields.
The current avenues by which help can be given to support Ukraine, from
hosting a refugee family to prayer, can be found on our website:
www.mayfieldsalisbury.org/index.php/gallery/ukraine Please also
remember those in other parts of the world who face conflict and suffering.
