Food For Thought

If anyone is considering making a donation to Food For Thought (church referral only foodbank) this week we are desperately short of cereal, UHT milk and sugar. Anything that can be stored will be gratefully received, however.

Thank You

The committee of Food For Thought would like to thank the congregations of Old Kilpatrick Bowling, Old Kilpatrick, St Andrew’s, Bellsmyre and our own congregation at St Augustine’s for all the generous donations of good from Harvest Festivals. All the donations will go to help individuals and families in need in the West Dunbartonshire area.

Remembrance Service

There will be a service in St Augustine’s Church to remember and celebrate the life of David Dyer on Saturday 10th October at 11 am.

All welcome.

Gift Day

Sunday 4th October is Gift Day and Harvest at both St Augustine’s and St Mungo’s. This is our opportunity to say “Thank You, Jesus” by putting some money in an envelope as a thank offering.

The Children of Palestine – A Remembrance

West Dunbartonshire Palestine Solidarity Campaign and St Augustine’s Church are holding a service acknowledging the 1st anniversary of the 51 day war on Gaza. We would like to invite friends from all faiths and none to join us in remembering all those who died during this time. We wish to demonstrate through the service, thoughts and prayers our hopes for the people of Palestine who live in poverty and fear each and every day.

The service will last approximately 1 hour and there will be tea and coffee served following the service.

St Augustine’s Church
High Street Dumbarton
7.30pm – 8.30pm
