Blythswood Care Shoebox Appeal 2014

We are now less than 4 weeks away from the start of the Blythswood Care Shoebox Appeal 2014.  Last year’s successful run within one week will not be repeated owing to logistical problems with the vehicles and drivers; we hope to better the 2013 total of 6,300 shoeboxes sorted but it will again be over a two-week period.  The dates for this year are:

    Monday 10th November to Friday 22nd November.  There will be only two shifts per day: 9.30am-12.30pm and 1.00pm to 4.00pm.  There will be no evening session.

The main work of the Shoebox Appeal in South Edinburgh is on the sorting centre at Craigmillar Park Church.  It is supported by churches and organisations all over Scotland but particularly by congregations in the Newington and South-East area because members mostly live within an easy distance; and while we are always pleased to receive filled shoeboxes our greatest need is for helpers to give their time sorting the shoeboxes donated by others.  In recent appeals we have handled between 5,000 and 7,000 boxes each year.

We need:
Volunteers
to help with shoebox sorting in the Hall at Craigmillar Park Church.  There are 2 shifts each day, from 9:30am-12:30pm and 1pm-4pm every weekday and we need at least 6 sorters per shift.

(To help with the arrangements:
If your church is already involved in the shoebox appeal, please would you pass this email to your co-ordinator and ask him or her to contact me.

  • If you are not yet involved, we would like you to consider getting involved. You would need to organise a local co-ordinator and, again, ask him or her to contact me.)

 

Festival Outreach Events from Origin Scotland

Dear friends at Liberton Northfield Parish Church,
Following on from last year’s events – we’re delighted to be hosting another festival of Christian music right on the Royal Mile during the festival. The evenings will feature well-known local artists like Steph Macleod, The Exile Band, Beth Coyle, Alan McKinlay, Anthem 33, Selah Corbin, The Royal Foundlings, El Mafrex and others.

Each evening, three bands or artists will play their music and share their faith stories with festival-goers, in a cafe-style environment. A refreshments bar will be available. If you’re looking for something to recommend to your congregation for good quality Christian music that is a great opportunity to confidently bring a non-Christian friend along to, this is it.

Time Doors 7pm, Programme from 7.30pm
Venue Carrubbers Christian Centre, 65 High Street, Edinburgh
