Harvest Sunday 14th October: We are seeking donations for Harvest. Gifts of flowers, fruit & vegetables will be really appreciated. We also need green foliage. Produce should be left at the church on Saturday 13th before 9.30am If you wish, cash donations can be given to Sherry Suett or Ruth Crooks. This year our Harvest of Plenty will be distributed to Silver Link, Local Nursing Homes, Refuge Centres and those who are ill.
‘Silver Link: members are asked to note that, with great reluctance, it has been decided to cancel the October meeting, previously arranged for Thursday, 25th Oct. This is because of the work which is likely to be going on during week commencing 22nd Oct to get the premises ready for the Open Day on Sat 27th Oct. Our next meeting will therefore be on 29th Nov, when (DV) we will have our Christmas dinner.’
Bob’s Store: Thank you for your contributions last month. This month we would appreciate: breakfast cereal, tinned soup/beans, tinned fruit/custard and pasta sauce.
High Kirk Cycling Group: We raised an incredible £6770 for our sponsored cycle ride round the lough. This will greatly assist the charities that help Joshua and Olivia.
Art Project: Are you 50+? Would you like to become involved in an exciting art project with folk from Carrickfergus and Hope House? We will be making an art piece under the guidance of an experienced tutor. We will meet for five weeks in High Kirk commencing Friday 5th Oct from 2 – 4.30pm (Oasis) and then for a further four weeks in Feb at Carrickfergus. All transport provided plus visits to other communities. Our completed art work will be displayed at a celebration evening and meal in Tullyglass House next June. For details please contact Lorraine McAllister.
Colin and Sunhwa Jenkins in Cork (Seamen’s Christian Friend Society) are collecting gifts for seafarers’ Christmas presents again this year:
Colin will be collecting items (or ready made gift bags – 5/6 items in a freezer zip bag is ideal) from October. Distribution on the ships runs from November – January each year. An ‘ideas for presents’ poster is in the vestibule or available from John and Heather Jenkins. You can email Colin at: email@example.com for more information, or if you would like to receive regular updates on their work. Thanks so much everyone!

GERMAN VISITORS Would any lovely HK families be able and willing to put up a teacher for two nights B&B and dinner? They would arrive Wed evening 24th October for dinner and leave after breakfast on Fri 26th October. You get a little fee for your trouble so won’t be out any expenses [£60 for 1 teacher and £120 for 2 to cover costs] and get to meet some interesting characters! If you strike up a connection they may even have you back over to their homes in Germany sometime! Also, might as well put this out there too since we have so many teachers in HK – 6 schools (both primary and secondary) are required to be willing to have 2 teachers observe lessons for a day or two so if any teachers or principals see this and would like to offer both I’d be so grateful! If anyone is interested please message Amy Gregg email firstname.lastname@example.org
