Main Hall - The contractors have been contacted and arrangements made for the floor to be fixed at the end of November. We really look forward to this and the resumption of church life there
Falcon Road Flat - The Elders agreed to end the commercial rent for the flat. Now, by arrangement with Link Housing Association and Edinburgh Council, the flat is being leased by the Housing Association for a Afghan refugee family.
Max Carsely - Max would like to extend his grateful thanks to all who contributed to his farewell gift. He is deeply grateful for your help and says he feels blessed to have worked at MUC. He hopes to return to visit us from Berlin at Christmas.
Organ - Max has been temporarily replaced by Evan Cruikshank. Brigitte Harris is helping too. Meantime the Elders will look at longer term arrangements in the next few months
Online services - These will resume. We have purchased a new camera to enable this. Technology seems the way forward in the economy of worship post pandemic.
Romanian Orthodox Community - The shared use of the church on Sundays has proved very successful and it’s wonderful to be able to offer support to this large community of Christians.
Church of Scotland Parish Clusters & Mergers - We shall hear this month about future plans but meantime we seek to work more closely with Marchmont St Giles
Edinburgh Napier University - We have been approached by Napier University to look at developing part of the building for student wellbeing services. At the same time, we have been asked if Napier could use part of the Church for classes because of the shortage of accommodation caused by Covid.
Book Group – This month’s book groups will be held on 11 and 25 November. We are reading Lee Strobel’s book The Case for Faith.
Children’s work – The elders will be meeting shortly to discuss the children’s work and we will have new proposals for the congregation.
Coffee Mornings – These will be held on Thursday 4 & 18 November in the Small Hall. We look forward to seeing everyone.
