Let Me Count the Ways: Measuring the Immeasurable’

The writer Sam Keen warns us that there is something foolish about the idea of defining or measuring love. And yet, we often ask each other, ‘How much do you love me?’  Sam Keen reminds us that the great lovers throughout human history have testified that, in the final analysis, we do not define or measure love but are defined and measured by it.  Bring your love to church today!

NOTICES & Dates for your Diaries

Message from the Management Board Following Rev Patrick O’Neill’s announcement of his retirement as of November 2015, we shall be electing a Search Committee of seven people, to seek a new settled minister. This is extremely interesting work. If you have an interest in seeing our ministry, here at Rosslyn Hill Chapel, continuing to flourish, then please think about being a part of this committee. If you are interested, or would like to know more, please contact the Chair of the Board, Kerry Reid (khornreid{at}hotmail.com)

Stewarding Can You Help? – An Appeal to all Members

Stewarding is a simple way to get more involved. Good stewarding makes a difference: a warm welcome from the stewards is a welcome to the Chapel.

Please look at your diaries and contact Jim Burtles (email: burtles.j{at}gmail.com) with any dates in the next few months when you’d be available. If you haven’t stewarded at a service before please don’t worry as there is always an experienced worship assistant present.

Coffee Hour – Volunteers invited!

Serving tea/coffee at 12.00pm in the side aisle is an enjoyable and useful activity. Please contact Margaret Perry (email: margaretperry14{at}hotmail.co.uk) to offer 30 minutes of time to suit you.
