Warm Places’ Scheme

St Fillan’s is taking part in this project and the Parish Hall will be open on Fridays from 2pm – 4pm starting this Friday 2nd December. Please help if you can and if you are able to be involved, please contact Rosanna Ottolini on (01764) 654039

Christians Against Poverty

Thank you for your incredible generosity to this project. This year, again, we are asking for goods or donations to go towards Christmas Hampers for those who are trying to find their way out of debt.

Mary’s Meals

A bit like Peter Kay, after an absence, we have been called again to the Coop to sing Carols on Sunday the 18th of December – the week before Christmas – from 1 pm – 3pm. What a great way to get into the Christmas Spirit!

Icy Weather!

We do have beautiful grounds but the drawback in the winter is obvious. Canon Tom is in negotiations with a company to try to provide some gritting at the weekend but meanwhile we shall have to fend for ourselves. Would you be willing to make yourself available for some snow clearing and gritting? Please contact Canon Tom.

Service of Readings and Carols

A Service of Readings and Carols will be held in St Andrew’s Church, Strathearn Terrace on Sunday 18th December at 7 pm led by Rev Ian Roy and organised by Christians Together in Crieff. All welcome!
