Filling Station starts again…
I do hope you have had a glorious summer and are looking forward to our next Filling Station get-together! This will be next Tuesday, 13th Septemberat the usual place, Lochiehead Barn, near Auchtermuchty, KY14 7EH. We have decided to celebrate the occasion with a small barbecue, to enjoy some food and fellowship before our worship. This will take place in the courtyard next to the hall where we normally meet and, if it should rain, we can be in the Dutch barn up the hill, but I hope you will dress appropriately for whatever weather we have! We have to meet a little earlier than normal, 6.45pm, but worship will begin at the same time as usual, 8pm. If you cannot make it for the barbecue, there will be coffee, tea and home baking provided from 7.30 onwards. We will finish as usual around 9.30pm
If you CAN be there at 6.45, and want to take part in the barbecue, please could you tell us you would like to do this, so that we can organise the catering. If we don’t hear, we won’t buy the food! But I really hope you can all get there – it will be fun and a little different to begin our meeting like that. If you read John’s gospel, chapter 21, you’ll see a description of one of the earliest barbecues, which happened on the shores of Lake Tiberias – their barbecue was charcoal; ours is gas!
Our worship next week will be provided by the Youth Band, who were terrific last time, I’m sure you’ll agree. Our speaker is Al Cuthbert, who has been the Assistant Pastor at the Baptist Church in St. Andrews for the last three years, with resposibility for families and commnity outreach, while also doing postgraduate study in Divinity. Previously, he worked as a PE teacher, then served as a missionary with YWAM (Youth With A Mission), and was then the families pastor at Stirling Baptist Church. We’re very much looking forward to hearing what he has to tell us.
And we’re looking forward to see you too!
