Christmas is just around the corner, which means it is almost time for the Annual Christmas Bowl Badge Day!

With final details currently being confirmed, the day is shaping up to be a very festive occasion featuring coffee, cake & choirs, and a Scots Church trading table selling baked goods, hand-crafts, lovely Christmas gift ideas, and of course promoting a marvellous cause. 

In order to make this day as successful as possible, we are seeking donations of crafts and baked goods for the trading table, and also volunteers to help run the trading table and sell badges. If you are able to help, Norah Norris or Naomi and Deb in the Scots Office would love to hear from you! 

Look out for more details of the Badge Day and the 2014 Christmas Bowl Campaign in the December/January issue of Talk. 

On Sunday the 7th of December 2014, Scots Church will once again be holding an “Empty Christmas Tree” service. During this service Congregational Members are asked to bring along an appropriate toy for a child aged between 0 and 13; or a monetary donation that will be used to purchase a gift. These gifts are donated to the OARS “presents for prisoners’ children programme”.

OARS supports the children of prisoners both in South Australia and interstate so presents that are ‘easy’ to post are most welcome. Gifts should be left unwrapped (donations of wrapping paper welcome) and should not contain any depiction of violence e.g. any weapons, police vehicles, fire engines, ambulances, soldiers etc. as this can be quite traumatic for children who may have witnessed their parent being arrested or hurt in any way. Please consider this worthy cause and the children and prisoners it supports.
