Stewarton's Sheep Trail

There are lots of sheep in Stewarton’s shops & businesses. How many can you find?

One of the shepherds wants to go and see baby Jesus, but he can’t find all his sheep! He knows that he went into Stewarton shops & businesses - will you help him find his missing sheep? Look out for the Sheep Trail sign in windows. When you find a sheep you can write the name of the sheep and the name of the shop you find it in!

Would you like to enter a competition?

Here’s what to do next:

1. Find 15 sheep

2. Read the Christmas story on the leaflet (download here - 1500KB) and answer the tie break question

3. Tear along the dotted line

4. Place the filled in side of the leaflet in the competition box at Manna Coffee Shop, High Street or bring it along to one of the all-age Nativity services on 23 December.

St Columba's Church,
Lainshaw Street - 11am

John Knox Church,
High Street - 11.15am

The winner will be drawn and notified between 23 and 31 December.

We will not pass your details to anyone else and we will destroy the entry form after the winners are drawn.

Extra forms also available from participating shops.

Boys' Brigade Big Brunch

Boys' Brigade companies from across Scotland are celebrating by hosting a Big Brunch, We have decided to celebrate this with a breakfast in John Knox Hall any time from 9am to 12 Noon.

There will be a selection of buffet type breakfast foods, tea/coffee and a hot roll/. We are not proposing a fixed charge, but are suggesting a donation.

The money raised will be split and go to the boys activities and also in partnership with St John’s we are fundraising to provide a defibrillator for the town that can be accessed 24/7 for public use.

We feel this is an excellent opportunity for the boys to get involved in a Community Project which will be a major asset to the town.

Open to all and we hope to see boys, parents, friends and ex memebers - all welcome.

Donations can be made here: https://www.gofundme.com/public-accessible-247-defib?member=852180

Week Of Prayer
Aug

to Sep 1

Week Of Prayer

A PRAYING CHURCH
Prayer is the most powerful tool we have; it underpins everything we do at John Knox. Prayer moves the hand of God and changes the course of history.
2 Chronicles 7:14 ‘If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.’

YOU ARE INVITED TO COME AND PRAY
Prayer Stations will aid you, inspire you and inform you on issues for your own personal private prayer…...
Church open from 10.30 to 12.30 each morning from Monday 27th August to Saturday 1st September.

Come for the whole time, or just a part. Come on one of the days, come on some of the days, come on all of the days! You will be made welcome whenever you can come, and you will leave enriched and envisioned.
James 4 vs 2b…’the reason you don’t have what you want is that you don’t ask God for it.’
