Jenny is asking for availability so she can compile rotas of duties for Sundays in December – February inclusive. Please let her know if you wish to join and contribute, even on an infrequent basis – every little helps!

Traidcraft has notified its fair traders that it now proposes to continue trading after the end of the year.
It will be a much smaller organisation, and we do not yet know which lines will continue. Watch this space!
Friday 30th November and Saturday 1st December
This will be held on from 10am – 3pm upstairs. If there is high demand for tables, downstairs will also be used. All interested in booking a table should contact Liz Kay on 01382 226426 or 07946855121 as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Free entry, but coffee and teas will be available to purchase.
Help in hosting would be much appreciated. It would be great to have someone on tea and coffees.
Also, some donated home baking would be much appreciated too to help earn a few £s with the tea and coffee.
The redevelopment steering group meeting has been deferred to Tuesday 20thNovember at 10am, because of the arrangements for Rachel’s funeral.
To mark the centenary of the end of World War I, an offering plate is available
for contributions in support of BLESMA (The Limbless Veterans) and Help for Heroes.
The redevelopment steering group will meet on Tuesday 13th November. The architect has not been invited to this meeting; we want to explore where we stand, and what questions we have, before we invite the architect to meet us. If you have any points you wish the group to note, or questions you believe we should be putting to the architect, please contact either Lorna or Margaret.
The link to the church intranet is now live, and can be found in the links section at the bottom of every page of the church website – http://dundeemethodist.org.uk/. The intranet contains minutes of meetings, and documents relating to church redevelopment. Please contact email@example.com if you would like to be granted access, which is open to all members of the congregation.
