SONGS OF PRAISE!
On 21st August at 3 p.m. in Blairgowrie Parish Church Hall.   A date for your diary.  Organised by CHURCHES TOGETHER, the new name for EPACTS.
We hope a lot of people will come to this, to sing well-known hymns and enjoy fellowship with members of other churches over tea, coffee and biscuits.


If you would like to request a hymn contact david@thehowats.net as soon as possible – or if you play an instrument and would like to join the praise band.   We want to make a joyful noise!   Any queries contact

Mary on 01250-883437 or maryh@theonly.org .

An EXHIBITION entitled “SINCERELY, VALENTINES” is opening at the V&A Museum In Dundee, celebrating the Dundee family company, Valentine & Sons Ltd., and its people.   The company was founded in 1825, was one of the earliest pioneers in photography and postcards, eventually becoming one of the UK’s largest greeting card companies.   The Exhibition is free, and runs from 2nd July continuing until January 8th, 2023.

Are there any takers for a visit to this exhibition using the Freedom Coach.  The coach would take about 10 of us for approx. £7.   The  coach could take 15 in which case it would cost less. It would pick up in convenient places.  If interested, please contact Mary on 01250-883437 or at mary@theonly.org and we can work out possible dates.

Are you in any way defeated in your Christian life?
Is there some persistent temptation which always seems to hold
the mastery over you? 
Then I pray very much that the Holy Spirit will help you
to consider carefully your freedom in Christ – you are
dead to sin alive to God.

I pray that the Holy Spirit will lead you to the Cross of Jesus
Christ to confess that bondage to sin, to know His
forgiveness and cleansing, and help you to claim the
freedom which is yours in Christ.

Christ has come to set you free, that you might not be
enslaved to sin.   Believe His Word, claim it, consider
it, know it to be true, praise Him for it.   And in so far
as you believe it and act upon it, it will become true
in your experience.   Then you will begin to prove that
Jesus saves, that Jesus sets us free.   He does break
the power of cancelled sin;  He does set the prisoner free.
That, I believe, is what the world is desperately waiting
to see in our lives today.
