Haggs Knitters

Thanks again to all our busy knitting, crocheting and sewing members who have responded so generously to the appeal for poppies for our Remembrance banner and jumpers, hats and blankets for babies in Malawi.Our new Remembrance banner was dedicated in church on Sunday 4th November and will be on display throughout the month.Some of the knitting for Malawi will be shown at church at the Gift service on December 9th prior to the collection for dispatch to Africa in the New Year.Thank you for giving your time and talents to make such wonderful gifts.

Over the past year we have been fortunate to have access to the three local primary schools in our parish.
Myself, Jean Duff from Denny Old and now the Rev Gunn take part in the school assemblies
where we give a Christian story through fun and interaction with the pupils.
We are grateful to the schools for this opportunity to do this and look forward to our end of term
theme with the title “The big Picnic”

Prayer Tree
Prayer Tree


Our Prayer Tree is positioned in the vestibule at the entrance to the church.

Requests for prayers can be written on the labels provided, then hung on a branch,
these will be forwarded to our locum minister to be included in future services.

Hearts can also be placed on the tree in memory of loved ones.


Just before Christmas two large boxes and numerous bags of beautiful knitted and crocheted jumpers, hats and blankets were passed to the charity for distribution by the Orphan Care programme in Livingstonia, Malawi. Word was received early in January that everything had been taken to Dundee for loading into the next container going to Africa.

So thank you for all your efforts, please keep up the good work and keep those fingers active! We will collect in the finished work twice a year in the future – at the end of June and December.

So.......keep knitting!!

A Message from your Treasurer


On behalf of the Congregational Board may I thank you for your continued support to Haggs Parish Church. During the current vacancy it is important that we keep our finances in order and we need you to allow us to do this. Can I just remind you of the different ways in which you can make your offering?

By Weekly Freewill Offering envelopes. Please see the Treasurer Marion Campbell if you wish to have envelopes or ask your elder.

If you pay Income Tax please Gift Aid your offering – this allows Haggs Church to claim back the tax which you have already paid (approx. 20% more – at no extra cost to you). Please see Murray McCheyne or Marion Campbell for a form to complete (this does not tie you to a fixed amount or a fixed term but allows the Church to claim back tax on however much you give) or again ask your elder. On average over the last few years we have recovered between £5000.00 and £6000.00 per year from Gift Aid. Without this money would not have been able to pay all our bills…………..so please – the more we can claim in Gift Aid the more money we can get back.

Either of the above methods can be made by Standing Order directly from your bank account to the Church’s bank account. Saves the number of WFO envelopes we have to buy and saves you remembering to make up the Sundays you have missed for whatever reason. It is really important to Haggs Church that you do make up the weeks you have not managed to get to Church so that we have a more accurate assessment of what monies are coming in to be able to budget for the expenditure.

We are most grateful for your generosity to all the charities we support – for a small congregation you do give very willingly to others – so thank you.

Thanks for all your loyalty and support and PLEASE ………don’t change!
