Launch of 'The Real Way To Plan The Year'

Following the success of their recipe book 'The Real Way To Cook', the Fund-raising Committee of Railway Street Presbyterian Church is launching a new publication just in time for Christmas - 'The Real Way To Plan The Year'. This is a year planner or engagement diary which will help to keep track of all next year's events, while also providing a spiritual 'thought for the day' in the form of a special Bible verse chosen by members and friends of the congregation to commemorate each date.

Carolyn Gowdy explained, 'We all have special dates in our lives, and it seemed a good idea that people should be able to commemorate these by linking each day of the year to a favourite Bible verse, which might also inspire others. We were delighted with the response of the congregation and hope that this publication will be another useful means of raising funds for our much appreciated refurbished church building.'

'The Real Way To Plan The Year' will be launched at a Coffee Morning and Sale on Saturday 15th November from 10.30 - 12.30 in the Church Lecture Hall. As well as the year planners, hand-made greeting cards, Christmas cards, novelty items and pens bearing the Railway Street mission statement 'Following Christ- Serving the Community' will also be available. Everyone will be made very welcome.
