THE SINGING GROUP

The Singing Group meets weekly throughout the year on Tuesday evenings at 7.45pm in Kirknewton Church for an hour of singing, laughter and fellowship followed by coffee and biscuits. Although primarily formed to rehearse the hymns for the Sunday services we also practise other music - spiritual, classical and popular. We aim to sing several pieces a year as a group at some of the important anniversaries within the Church, such as Easter and Christmas. We would love to welcome anyone who just likes to sing to come and join us any Tuesday evening.

WEST LOTHIAN FOODBANK (Reg Charity Number SC008274)

The organisers of the West Lothian Foodbank have informed us that they still have plenty of food on hand at this time. They would, however, greatly appreciate donations of the undernoted items:
Washing up Liquid; Toilet Rolls; Shaving Foam; Razors; Shower Gel; Deodorants; Nappies
These items can be left in the vestibule of either Church on Sunday mornings and will be delivered on your behalf.

As the Foodbank is very expensive to run, e.g. premises for storage, donations of money would be very gratefully received, in several ways shown on their website - https://westlothian.foodbank.org.uk/give-help
or, alternatively, you can pay directly into their Bank Account using a cheque or card in your Bank’s branch. The details you will need are: West Lothian Foodbank; Clydesdale Bank; Sort Code 82/70/05; Account no 80575476. If you can add your name as the reference this will really help them.
If you would prefer to send them a cheque, their address is: West Lothian Foodbank, 33 Market Place, Whitburn, West Lothian EH47 0EU.
