Drop-in discussion Mondays in minister’s study – 1 to 2pm
You are invited to a small group meeting on Mondays between 1pm and 2 pm. The questions explored will be – “What happened with/to you during yesterday’s services?” and “What questions, events, stories are awakened for you from the readings for next Sunday?” The minister’s study is in the Hall behind the church.
Spring Plant Sale Fundraiser
A plant sales table will operate in the Gathering Area after morning services until December 1 (sooner if interest is waning). Lists will be available for you to indicate what you would like to add to your garden or what you can offer for sale. You are also welcome to bring along plants, BUT those unsold would need to be taken home again as they cannot be looked after at church during the week. Inquiries to Lee Somerville.

Liz Templeton: In your Loving is Your Knowing
Various folk in Knox have got excited about this book, and suggested we gather to discuss some of the chapters. Mary Pearson, the hymn-writer, wants to join in online, as do Dr Don Fergus and others. Can you contact me please if you’d like to be part of this. My suggestion is that we meet in February, Peter Matheson
