ANZAC DAY SERVICE – SATURDAY 21ST APRIL at 11am Our Australian and New Zealand friends commemorate ANZAC Day with this service which marks the principal day of Remembrance in both countries. All are welcome to attend.

CHANGES IN THE CATHEDRAL The Kirk Session has now issued contracts for the replacement of pews in the Cathedral. Full details of the work proposed are set out in a separate leaflet which will be available in the next few days. The work will be carried out over a period of 5 weeks, beginning on Monday 21st May. During that period, it will not be possible for worship to be conducted in the Cathedral. Morning services will therefore be held in Kings College Chapel. Evening worship will take place in the Dunbar Street Hall at the usual time of 6pm. These arrangements will last from Sunday 27th May until Sunday 1st July. Further details will be published as the time for the work approaches.

If you are visiting or relatively new to us, The crèche is along the passage behind the organ. There is a toilet and plentiful

toys; and the service is relayed there. Feel free to take your children through. Visiting children of 5 and over are welcome to join the Sunday School which starts in the church and leaves at the end of the second hymn for lessons in the east gatehouse.

Both the Cathedral Choir which rehearses on Friday night, and the Bellringers who practise on Monday night welcome enquiries from new enthusiasts. There is always a guide available after Sunday morning service to show visitors round the Cathedral. The Cathedral shop is in the west end.

In every case, ask a duty elder, the beadle or the Minister to point the way or to introduce you to a contact.

BE PART OF ‘TEAM ST MACHAR’ If you have some time to spare, perhaps you’d consider volunteering in the cathedral. There are lots of ways you can get involved, including welcoming and assisting visitors and serving in the shop.

We value our volunteers and will give you all the support you need. If you’re interested, please submit a volunteering form (which you can get from any elder) and someone will be in touch with you to discuss further. Thank you.

FLOWERS FOR 2018 Mark an anniversary or celebration with flowers in the church.

The 2018 Flower Calendar is at the back of the church. If you haven’t done this before, speak to Patricia Keith, Elspeth Ross or Judith Norton.

Donations of money for the Flower Fund are always welcome. They provide for ‘unclaimed’ Sundays and the more lavish decoration at Easter, Harvest and Christmas.
