Online giving

October 27, 2020

A new facility has been set up by the Church of Scotland to allow people to donate online to local churches. This may be of interest to people wishing to make their regular offering who have been unable while the building has been closed, or indeed any wishing to make a one-off donation to support the work of the church. The link to donate online to Torrance Church is at http://www.torranceparishchurch.org.uk/about-us/donate/

We are encouraged to look out for one another, and our neighbours, at this difficult time.  The support of the visiting friends and pastoral teams remains very much available (by telephone); anyone in the community who would benefit practical help (e.g. with shopping), a friendly phone call, or is finding things difficult can call or be referred to Dorothy Beaton or Marion Murray on 07788 797238 in the first instance.

We are pleased to announce that the church is now open weekly from 10.30am until 12 noon to offer prayer support during the many challenges and struggles we are all facing at present.  Two members of the prayer team will be there to welcome you and pray into your concerns with you in a safe loving and confidential setting.

Thursday Café now open!

October 27, 2020

We’re delighted to have opened the café again on Thursday mornings from 9am-12. Things are a little different from usual, with tables in the main church, and restrictions on how many people can sit together, but we hope to welcome you for coffee, tea and scones, in a safe and friendly environment.

Poppy Scotland Appeal 2020

October 27, 2020

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, Poppy Scotland have made some changes to the way they are fundraising this year while still doing their best to ensure that we are all able to wear remembrance poppies. Therefore, for the first time, all donations in Torrance will be cashless.  A Torrance Poppy Appeal JustGiving page has been set up and can be accessed through the following link: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ao-torrance

We would like to get this out to as many people as possible in the village so if you use any of the village social media sites, I would appreciate it if you would post the details or just share with friends and family.  Poppies will be available in the shops and can be collected there.  This year the boxes will have QR and NFC code stickers on them, so as an alternative to JustGiving, anyone wishing to, can donate through their smartphone by scanning the code and following the instructions.

While I completely understand that this is not ideal for a lot of the community, it’s really the only way we can continue with a village collection this year in a safe and manageable way. Thank you, Dorothy McCarthy.

Appeal for Spare Ribbons

October 27, 2020

If you have any spare ribbons at home they would be greatly appreciated and put to good use as part of a prayer/outreach initiative we intend to do to encourage folk in the community to “try praying” and then tie a ribbon on the church railings as a reminder of the prayer. We hope that they will serve also as an encouragement to others and as a reminder that God is at work during these difficult times and hears the prayers of our hearts. Please place any ribbons you may have in the plastic box outside the front door of the church and pray on for our community that they might “taste and see that the Lord is good”. A banner will also be going up to explain to folk what it is about. Thank you.
