We are holding a Charity Coat Collection in conjunction with “Easter Unpacked”. If you have a coat or jacket you no longer need, or which the kids have grown out of, please bring it with you and we will arrange for all the donations to go to The Edinburgh Clothing Store. 
The Edinburgh Clothing Store (ECS) is a charity run by volunteers, offering clothing, shoes, bedding, etc. for people in genuine need. It's a free service and no money changes hands.”

Prayer Focus - Fifth Sunday in Lent
As we approach the Lord’s table,
- help us to look back to the cross and remember what Christ accomplished for us
- help us to look ahead to the time when Christ will come again as the conquering king
- help us to look within and ask the Holy Spirit to show us any areas of our lives which are not pleasing to God.
Prepare us to come to the table in joy, in reverence and in honesty.
