A big "thank you" once again to our friends at Rannoch Road Co-op and Letham4All for their latest food donations to help with our two soup kitchens, both of which have recently restarted!
MONDAYS at 7.30pm - Thimblerow Car Park, City Centre
TUESDAYS at 4.00pm - Dalreoch Place Car Park, Letham
We will be encouraging social distancing in line with current Government guidance.
Everyone is welcome. If you need any more info, please give us a shout!
This week's Sunday Sermon from Perth Gospel Hall comes from Adrian Ferguson from Methven.
We're looking forward to restarting our soup kitchen / foodbank in Letham on Tuesday 20th October at 4pm. It takes place in the Dalreoch Place Car Park just behind Bilal's and Welcome Inn.
Initially we won't be serving drinks, but we will still have a short 'thought for the day' before handing out bags of groceries. We'll be available for a little while for people to chat to as well.
Everyone is welcome - please just come along! For more information, please get in touch.
Another village where we've been distributing copies of The Signpost magazine is Abernethy.
Abernethy was home to Mr Isaac Ewan who became a Christian while serving as a soldier in WW1. He was associated with a small church in the village and travelled widely throughout the British Isles preaching and teaching prior to his death in 1968.
He wrote many poems and hymns which have been published in several books. Below are a couple of them which are particularly thought-provoking.
We started to distribute our magazine, The Signpost, in Bridge of Earn this week.
For several years now we've held a well-attended Christmas Carol Service in the village - I wonder if it'll be possible this year?
It was nice to bump into a few familiar faces on our rounds, and also to see this wooden cross. The cross is at the centre of the good news that we love to share...
"He (Jesus) Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness." 1 Peter 2:24
We've been really missing our monthly visits to several care homes across the city and beyond during the COVID crisis, but have continued to pray for the staff and residents throughout.
It was lovely to receive some nice feedback from our friends at Glenhelenbank Care Home in Luncarty today after they watched a short service we recorded onto DVD for them.
After 5 months we finally made it back out to Thimblerow Car Park tonight with the Good News Trailer.
It was great to see some familiar faces, and some new ones too!
We'll be there every Monday from now on - 7.30-8.00pm, distributing food and toiletries to anyone in need of them. Eventually we'll get back to serving hot drinks too.
