|On the weekend of 26 and 27 August, Howe Trinity celebrated the 150th
anniversary of the East Kirk, built in 1867 as Alford Free Church. A Flower
Festival was held on the Saturday and Sunday, with as many as possible of the
church organisations and outside user groups represented in flower
arrangements. On the Sunday morning a Celebration Service was held with guest
preacher, Very Rev Alan McDonald, former moderator of the General Assembly, who
opened our church hall in 2008. Our service began with our opening hymn sung
outside at the front, in recognition of the pioneer congregation, who, denied a
site to build a church, initially held their worship on the high road. We then
moved inside for the rest of the service, which included the presentation of
long service certificates to six of our elders. After the service, a buffet
lunch was served for 130 members and friends.

Guild Matters - well it does to many of us! The next session of the Guild starts on 18 September at 7.30pm and all are welcome. We have many interesting speakers to look forward to - pick up a syllabus from any committee member, and mark down in your diary which ones you'd like to hear, or come to them all! The national Guild theme for 2017/18 is "Go in Love" and in that vein could members and friends please bring photos or memorabilia of an occasion when "love was in the air"

|PRAYERS FOR SECOND WEEK SEPTEMBER|
Mon 11th - Lord we lift your name on high and we give you all the glory. We ask that you be in every work we undertake as a fellowship and pray that you will grow our faith; that we may be the church you want us to be. Be with the Session and Board as they meet tonight.
Tues 12th - Lord, help me discover that the adventure of faith begins when I take that first step out of my comfort zone, when I let go of my familiar securities. It's then I discover that it's out there I meet you, the presence in my storm, the example for my path and the companion for my steps. (SBS)
Wed 13th - Pray that the government will put Christian values as their priority, and will lead with clarity of vision and integrity in these difficult times.
Thurs 14th - Let us pray for members of our congregation and for others in our community; especially the elderly, sick, bereaved and those suffering from their own personal problems. Help us to reach out to them and show that we care.
Fri 15th - International Day of Democracy Give thanks for the world's 123 democracies, with all their imperfections, where people elect their governments and enjoy a degree of freedom, respect and protection.
Sat 16th - It's who you know that will prosper and protect you all of your days. Put the unknown into God's hand and trust Him with your worries.
Sun 17th - We give thanks that in our own churches we are generally unaware of any potential threat to our worship and faith. Pray for Christians in other countries where they are persecuted for their faith.
