Venture Week - our theme this year is based around sport so we are looking for pieces of sports equipment to decorate the halls etc.  If you have anything you could lend us e.g. tennis racket, football scarf, cricket bat, football etc (if doesn't need to be new, vintage would be good too!) we would be very grateful. Please hand them into the office where there will be a box to collect them. Please make sure you name them so that we can return them to you. Secondly, we would like to use non-disposable cups so if you have any you could donate, we would be pleased to receive them. Thank you.

Blackhall Bulletin - the deadline for the September issue is Sunday 29th July.  Please send all submissions to the editor, Barbara Wilson at the church office, or by email to

Church Kneelers: There are a number of Church Kneelers sitting in the storage bay area just outside Dorothea’s Office. Should you wish to take one away for personal use -  please feel free!

WATCH Committee:  This year we are supporting Alzheimer Scotland through their work at the Prentice Centre in Granton. Our first fundraising event this year is the Summer Coin Collection. In the vestibule there is a box of empty money bags – please pick one up and fill it with loose change. Filled money bags can be brought back at any service in July and August when they can be left in the box in the vestibule or given in during the 9.30 am service. Thank you – the WATCH committee values your support.
