Remembrance Sunday was a day we remembered not only those who gave up so much during the First World War but also those who have so little. We would like to thank everyone for their great response to the Blythewood Shoebox Appeal.
Sunday 11th November is when Remembrance Day & Remembrance Sunday coincide, it also marks the 100th Anniversary of the end of hostilities in the First World War.
Remembrance Sunday is held in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth of Nations as a day “to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts”.
Please join us for our service which starts at 10:45am. (There will be refreshments after the service)

Sunday 11th November
This year Blythswood Care are celebrating their 25th year of running the Shoe Box Appeal and once again our church is supporting them.
We know that many of you in our community like to get involved so part of our service will be dedicated to the appeal. You can bring either your own completed shoebox or items that can be used to make a shoebox up. The service will start as usual at 10:45am and will be followed by refreshments.
For full information about the appeal please visit Blythswood Care Shoe Box Appeal. On their website you are also able to download or view a checklist of suggested items, or alternatively you can pick up a leaflet from our church. (All items must be new and no food is permitted apart from sweets with a best before date no earlier than March 2019.)
It’s not difficult to choose gifts for people who have so little. Things we take for granted can often be luxuries for people living in desperate poverty. By filling a shoebox with simple gifts you can give hope to someone in need this Christmas. Blythswood Care
