Town Hall meeting ideas – let’s make them happen! Are you excited about the potential of our refurbished church foyer to help us reach out to the local community? Would you like to have a part in getting a church café up and running a couple of days a week from September? Please join us this Thursday evening from 7:00 – 9:00pm in the foyer as we follow up on suggestions made at the Town Hall meeting in November or speak to Alison Orr or Hazel Kyle if you are interested in being involved in helping out in any way.

CHRISTIAN AID: Sunday 12th May – helpers needed to distribute Christian Aid envelopes after church.  Lunch will be provided.  Please sign the sheet at the sign-up desk in the vestibule or speak to Derek Kyle.

CHRISTIAN AID WEEK 12TH MAY—19TH MAY: Every May volunteers go into their community to collect door-to-door. In 2012 house-to-house collections raised more than two-thirds of Christian Aid Week’s total of over £12m. This money has helped to transform lives around the world, supporting poor communities to find their own solutions to poverty. In Glengormley Presbyterian Church we have over the years built up a team of collectors; however, due to age or illness each year we need others to join the team. If you feel that you could help this year please speak to either Sally Grant or David Farrow. If you do not have the opportunity to give to Christian Aid through the week please place your contribution on the offering plate on Sunday 19th May.



MODERATORS APPEAL FOR SYRIA: The collection will take place today, please give generously.

FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENTS: At our Committee meeting on Tuesday 23rd April it was agreed that all invoices and requests for payment along with invoices/receipts should be left in the Treasurers pigeon hole in the Church Office and not given to  the treasurer directly.  All invoices/requests for payment must now be processed through the office.  All payments will be issued from the Church Office, any query for non payment should be made to the office. We have set the target of a 14 day processing of invoices.
