Nigel’s Retirement – Final Details

June 25, 2021

Here are the final details for the special events marking Nigel’s retirement over the next few days:

Friday 25 June – Celebration Event on Zoom, 7.30pm
This will be live on Zoom from 7.25pm.

Here is the link:   https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89774517743  Meeting ID: 897 7451 7743

Brian Mackenzie will be compering, joining Nigel and Jen and other special guests live from the church with some other contributions by video and presentation of commemorative gifts.  

We want everyone to feel a part of this special event so do please turn your video on in Zoom if you are happy to do that so Nigel and Jen can see you – but keep your mic muted!  

We will also use the chat function to share comments and memories as the event takes place, so come prepared to drop something in if you wish.
 
Dress code is as you wish but feel free to dress up for this occasion – loud ties was one suggestion to take or leave! 

Please join promptly at 7.25pm in time for the programme starting at 7.30pm sharp. The programme will finish around 9pm. 

Saturday 26 June  Sadly ongoing covid restrictions have put paid to plans for a social gathering in person so this will not be going ahead.  

Sunday 27 June – Service at 1030am At the time of sending this email, there are still a few seats available to book in the Church Hall overflow – click here to view the booking page.  

The service will obviously be available to view online in the usual way.   Afterwards, there will be the chance to line West Balgrochan Road (up the side of the park) to wave Nigel and Jen home a short time after the service concludes (taking care to observe current distancing requirements!).  

It will be great to give glory to God and honour Nigel and Jen for their extraordinary contribution to the life of the church and wider community over the past thirty years together.

Girls’ Brigade Get Moving – 14 Day Challenge

February 7, 2021

As the Emma Cameron Foundation is a special charity to Torrance Girls’ Brigade, we do like to raise funds for the ECF each year and give the display collection.

Recognising the benefits of exercise especially in lockdown, we have set the girls and leaders a challenge to be active for 14 days and their parents are welcome to donate to the ECF in recognition of this via the JustGiving page below.

Being active can be anything which gets us moving like a cycle, walk or indoor exercise class.

Anyone is very welcome to join us in this challenge, either with the 14 day activity or you could give to the ECF in recognition of the girls efforts! Many thanks, the GB leaders. https://www.justgiving.com/emmacameronfoundation
