DEER Parish Church payer group will meet in the session room at Old Deer on Wednesday, June 27, from 6.30pm to 7.15pm.

Peterhead St. Andrew’s Parish Church is to be having a book sale and buttery morning on Saturday, June 30, from 10am to 12 noon. Tea and coffee is included and entry is £2.

Members of the Vestry of St. Drostan’s Episcopal Church, Old Deer, have their evening out on Saturday, June 30, and this is to be in the Buchan Indoor Bowling Club, Mintlaw, commencing at 5.30pm.

St. Andrew’s Church, Queen Street, Peterhead, is again to be running a holiday club from Monday, July 2, through to Friday, July 6, from 10am to 1pm each day. The Olympic-themed holiday club is called Champions’ Challenge with stories from St. Luke’s Gospel.

Children from primary 1 to 7, regardless of where they live or which school they attend, are invited to go along. There is also a picnic on Saturday, July 7, at Aden Country Park, Mintlaw, from 2pm to 4pm and, in addition, a prizegiving service in the church on Sunday, July 8.

A team of people have been working hard to make sure there is an interesting programme which would suit children from ages four to 12 years. It is hoped lots of children will go and enjoy an exciting week with games, crafts and DVD clips and much, much more.

Children can register by going along to the club in the church hall at the start of the week.

Cruden Parish Church is having a monthly cake and candy stall after the morning service until September in aid of the Windows Project.

Peterhead Fishermen’s Mission has the regular Nightcap Service on Sunday, July 1, at 8pm. A warm invitation and welcome is extended to all who are able to share in this fellowship.

St. Kane’s Church, New Deer, is holding a fellowship soup and sweet on Saturday, June 30. This will be held in the upper hall at the centre from 11.30am to 3pm.

The Salvation Army Captains, Mathew and Debbie Bennet, who have been in charge at Peterhead for the past few years are to be leaving the responsibility quite soon, although they are not going far away. They have been appointed to serve at the Army Citadel in Aberdeen.

It has been announced that their farewell services will be held in the Peterhead Army hall, Windmill Street, on Sunday, July 9, at 11am and 6pm to which all are welcome.

Their successors will be moving to Peterhead later in the month. However, it is fitting to pay tribute to the faithful service and witness of Captains Mathew and Debbie during their time among us and to wish them much blessing in their new appointment.
