|2016 IS HOWE TRINITY'S YEAR FOR PRAYER- click here TO FIND OUT MORE|
|Howe Trinity recently took delivery of a Publicly Accessible Defibrillator, courtesy of the generosity of Alford & District Rotary. Howe Trinity elders Bobby Graham and Steve Vickers are also members of Alford Rotary, and they were joined by fellow rotarian Alicia Murray for the handover. On the receiving end were Edna Matthew, from the Donside Defibrillator Group along with Howe Trinity minister, John Cook. Howe Trinity fund raised to buy the special temperature controlled cabinet to hold the defibrillator, and this is now attached to the wall of the church hall beside the office door. £700 was raised through the offering at our recent "Sankey Evening" and a highly successful coffee morning, along with individual donations. As well as supporting local groups in the purchase and installation of PADs, the Donside Defibrillator Group is also encouraging people in the Howe of Alford to take part in CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) training.|
Next Sunday, 2 October, we will be holding our Harvest Thanksgiving, and we will be joined, as usual, by the local uniformed organisations. Anyone wishing to help decorate the church on the Saturday is asked to contact Lesley Michie (62692) as soon as possible. Everyone is invited to bring a harvest gift to the service of either flowers (which will be distributed within Howe Trinity parish) or fruit/vegetables/groceries, which will be donated to the Cyrenians, helping homeless people in Aberdeen.

|PRAYERS FOR LAST WEEK SEPTEMBER/START OCTOBER|
Mon 26th - Remember those who have been unjustly detained by governments and other agencies on the grounds of their political and religious beliefs; and their families. Pray that organisations such as Christian Solidarity Worldwide, working to free them, will have great success as a result of their advocacy, diplomatic pressure and prayer. (csw.org.uk)
Tues 27th - Loving God, we pray that the stigma which still surrounds mental illness would diminish; that it is better understood, and those affected will find it easier to admit their need and to accept help.
Wed 28th - Thank you Father, for your great gift of peace; the peace that only you can give in the midst of a restless world; surrounded by trouble and difficulty.
Thurs 29th - Loving Father, we pray for those who struggle with an addiction and can't see any way out. Please show yourself in their lives and give them the encouragement and support they need.
Fri 30th - We thank you Father, for the beauty that unfolds before us each day in our countryside and gardens. We are so far removed from the struggle that others have in this world and we pray that the day will come that they will be able to see again the wonders of your creation, and peace will come to our world for all to enjoy.
Sat 1st October - As a new month begins, let's pause to reflect on the month which is behind us. Gracious Lord, thank you for your presence and for answering our prayers: not always as we would have wished, but in line with your will and purpose for us. Keep us close to you in the days ahead.
Sun 2nd - Lord Jesus, you welcome us into your house today and we know that you will bless us in the service through John as he leads us in worship. We long that more people would gather with us to receive your blessing. Show us how to be used to answer this prayer.
