6. ANNUAL LEAVE The Minister, Revd Dr Sandy Forsyth, will be on
annual leave from Wednesday 13 to Wednesday 27 July inclusive

The Church Manager, William Mearns, will also be on annual leave from

7. STAMP APPEAL We are still collecting stamps! This year, the proceeds
from selling them will be used to support pastors in Lebanon. They are
employed by the National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon (NESSL),
which is a partner of the Church of Scotland. The economic crisis in the
country has struck hard and the Synod is struggling to pay salaries.

Pastors are key people supporting the spiritual and institutional life and
ministry of the Synod. Despite the hardships experienced, they are reaching
out to the needy in their congregations in a sacrificial way, and have even
set up a scheme where they give half of their salary to a relief programme
for the neediest families. The desperate situation has prompted the Synod
to ask its partners around the world for support. This year the Stamp
Project aims to raise enough funds to pay a pastor a full year's salary. You
can be part of this simply by passing on your used stamps.

Look out for our red stamp-collecting box on the table in the Halls
entrance. If you have a large collection, or stamps which you believe to be
valuable, please let me know and I’ll be happy to pick them up from you in person.

8. YOUTH UPDATES Youth Group will be taking a summer break until
August. Hillary will be in touch with families to conduct a survey of the past
year, as well as with some late summer plans before the next school term begins!



9. UKRAINE It is difficult to remind ourselves as we enjoy time outside
(albeit recently under grey skies) in the eastern part of Ukraine there is no
peace as shells rain down indiscriminately on people, buildings and fields.
The current avenues by which help can be given to support Ukraine, from
hosting a refugee family to prayer, can be found on our website:
www.mayfieldsalisbury.org/index.php/gallery/ukraine  Please also
remember those in other parts of the world who face conflict and suffering.
