The Kelso Food Bank
St Andrew’s Church, in conjunction with the other Churches in Kelso Churches Together, actively supports the Kelso Food Bank through donations, and staffing the Food Bank.
The following items are now needed: Tins of meat, fish, fruit,spaghetti,macaroni, potatoes, tomatoes puddings, jars of jam, and small to medium packs of cereals.(It is tempting to buy big boxes..great value for money but they take up too much room in the packed bags, at the expense of other items.)
These can be brought to church or placed in the trolley / box at the Co-op and Sainsbury supermarkets. Thank you very much for your help.
KELSO CHURCHES TOGETHER (KCT)
St Andrew’s is a part of Kelso Churches Together and amongst other activities, we share the leading of Services in our local Care and Residential homes, weekly in Queen’s House and monthly in Grove House, Plenderleith Court and Kerfield Court. Congregational support is always welcome!
WELLGATE GARDEN, MOREBATTLE.
Matilda Hall writes:
Wellgate is now officialy part of the Quiet Gardens Scheme. This is a worldwide organisation that fosters the provision of quiet spaces, small and large, creating sanctuaries of still and refreshment. They are found in churches, retreat centres, schools and private gardens like Wellgate.
Anybody seeking peace and quiet in a garden can come here on both Fridays and Sundays. Of course if we are there with a little time to spare a cup of tea or coffee would be forthcoming, but part of the point of doing this is to enable people to enjoy the garden, small as it is, without involving anybody else. Wellgate is the Old Manse, is next to the Kirk, a white Georgian block of a house.
We hope people will respect the garden and not nick cuttings. These can be provided if you ask: there are probably little plants potted up by the greenhouse to be purchased and small sums for charity can be left.
