We need a volunteer to fold Orders of Service on Friday 28th June. Contact Ginny in the office if you can help.

Holiday Tales
We invite you to bring back pictures, post cards and stories from your summer travels and to add them to our Greenbank Travel Log in the Main Hall. You can do this each Sunday at Coffee. Looking forward to hearing about your adventures!

Summer Visitors!
We are looking forward to welcoming the Stone family for the month of July. Rev. Bill Stone, our former Youth Minister, is exchanging pulpits and manses with Martin, who will go to New Vernon in New Jersey.

General Assembly 2019 update
Decisions taken at the 2019 General Assembly have the potential to reshape the Church of Scotland at every level. Life and Work has published a guide summarising the key decisions.

Streaming of Worship
Huge thanks to those who have contributed financially to our appeal for support of the costs of this project. Donations small and large are still very welcome. Further details are available in the vestibule.

Summer Walks – Eco Congregation
Recreational walks to celebrate Creation will be available this summer if there is interest. Options include the Union Canal from Slateford to Ratho, a 'stroll' from the church to R.L. Stevenson's Swanston Cottage and beyond, and one other Pentland Hills trip. All are 2–3 hours, and relatively easy path-based walking. Start and finishes will be on foot or by public transport. If you would like to participate please contact David Jack.

Friendship Club Needs Help!
The Friendship Club is looking for general helpers and someone to be a treasurer for the group, collecting and banking money from the fortnightly Wednesday afternoon meetings which run from September to March. Contact Val Smart if you'd like to know more.
