We remember Mrs. Elsie Knight with love and affection, and thank God for her life and courageous spirit, and for the many years of cheerful and devoted service she gave to the Church, remembering especially, her enthusiasm and work for the W.M.A. The many friends who gathered at Church to honour her memory, were evidence of her great interest in the life and work of the town, and of their respect and affection for her.
We offer our love and sympathy to the family in their bereavement.
Church Night
There are only two meetings this month and we hope to resume on the first Tuesday in January.
Dec. 7th. STUDY: "Paul's Christmas Carol"
Dec. 14th. A Christmas Evening when we hope several Organisations will contribute to a miscellany on the Seasonal theme
Carol Guest Service
We intend sending greeting cards from the Church to folk in the neighbourhood again this year and we shall be grateful for your help in taking these to friends in your Road or Street. The Choir will sing " The Nativity " in the Evening Service of December 19th and there will be popular carols for us all. Last year we had hoped to have Candles to decorate the Church for this occasion, but the Electricity Strike ruled this out. This year we should like to have Carols by Candlelight, so if you can lend some candlesticks, please bring them to the Church before December 19th.
Quin Jubilee Note
Delivery of the 1972 Souvenir Diaries is still awaited but it is hoped that these will arrive well before Christmas. Distribution arrangements will ensure a wide coverage of our people and the selling price will be kept to a minimum.
