This time last year we announced that our partnership with the Raven Trust had come to an end. Due to advancing years, the founders of the Dundee-based charity were having to retire and had been unable to find any willing volunteers to take over the planning and organising of container shipments to Malawi. In the ensuing months group members and supporters kept their needles clicking and we were able to make donations of knitted goods to projects in Kenya, Rwanda and Haiti. However, we are now delighted to report that a connection with Malawi has been re-established. This has been possible through the formation of the Banana Box Trust, who are also based in Dundee and have taken over the Raven Trust's former depot in Peddie Street. At the time of writing, we are busy preparing our first consignment of blankets, jumpers, hats and vests to be dispatched to the East African country courtesy of our new friends at the Banana Box Trust. So keep those needles clicking, ladies. We look forward to receiving your contributions.
Again I wish to thank everyone involved with this project and hope to see you all on Monday, April 2, between 1.45 and 3.30 pm when our meetings return to Barry Church Hall for the summer months.

We recently commenced a 14-week study series on the New Testament book of 2 Timothy and this will be held weekly through until June 6.
Death lurked in the shadows . . . and Paul knew it. Dropped into a dungeon during the reign of deranged Nero, Paul spent his last days lonely and cold . . . but not desperate and despondent. Writing by lamplight, Paul penned his “swan song” —one final, passionate letter to his “beloved son” Timothy (2 Timothy 1:2). A last will and testament of sorts, 2 Timothy is filled with strong exhortations, insightful instructions, and intimate reflections —and it spurred Timothy onward in his race of faith. It will do the same for us . . . if we hear and heed its admonitions.
A warm welcome awaits all interested in sharing in these times of midweek fellowship. Meetings are held at 21 Barry Road on Wednesdays from 7.30 to 9 pm. Study notes for the current and previous series can be found on the Midweek Focus page of the church website. For further information, contact Graham Suttie on 01241 852614 or email graham.suttie@btinternet.com

19:30Midweek Focus Bible Study 21 Barry Road All welcome“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” is childish folly. Long after broken bones have healed, broken spirits remain broken. Words are powerful things. With them, we can lead people to lifefreeing truth or life-imprisoning falsehood. Words are dangerous, especially in the mouths of charlatans and the duplicitous. That’s why Paul was concerned about certain men in the church who had “gone astray from the truth” (2 Timothy 2:18). They were teaching lies, and Timothy needed to counter both —the men and the lies —by presenting himself as an approved workman of God, “accurately handling the word of truth” (2:15) and always remembering that God is building a “firm foundation” (2:19).

19:30Midweek Focus Bible Study 21 Barry Road All welcomeReality in the raw —that’s what the Bible gives us. It tells the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And the truth it tells includes a ghastly story of godlessness. Human depravity marches across its pages. Sadly, many have grown so accustomed to watching the parade, whether in the Bible or the culture, that we’ve become numb to the depths of debauchery residing in the human heart. We’re no longer shocked and outraged. Perhaps that’s why the Bible sometimes backs up the truck and unloads a descriptive deluge of indecency on us. That’s exactly what we get in 2 Timothy 3:1– 9.

18:00Fair Trade Nation Lecture Dundee Uni Dalhousie Building LT1Fair Trade Nation Lecture 2018


Fairtrade: enabling sustainable, quality coffee from small-holder value chains

Date: Monday 30th April, 6pm
Venue: Lecture Theatre 1, Dalhousie Building, University of Dundee

This year, we are delighted to welcome Ewan Reid, Director of Coffee at Glasgow-based, Matthew Algie, one of the UK's leading coffee roasters specialising in sustainable sourcing. With a 20-year Fairtrade heritage starting with the UK's first Fairtrade espresso in 1997, today nearly 90% of the company's sourcing is Fairtrade. Matthew Algie supplies coffee to the cafe and hospitality sector including Marks & Spencer coffee shops and around 2,500 independent coffee shops, bars and restaurants.

Ewan has worked for the company since joining as a graduate in 1993 and joined the Board in 2002. With a background in food science, he oversees a variety of business areas including roastery operations, quality assurance, green coffee supply chain, R&D and sustainability. A frequent visitor to Matthew Algie’s supply chain partner co-operatives in producing countries, he is also a member of Fairtrade International’s Coffee Advisory Council.

At the Fair Trade Nation Lecture, Ewan will provide an overview of why Matthew Algie choose to use Fairtrade coffee. He will also explore the Fairtrade coffee market and the challenges and opportunities of the Fairtrade coffee system.

The lecture will start at 18:00 and will be followed by Q&A / discussion. Tea and Coffee will be served from 5:30pm. There will be drinks and refreshments afterwards.

This is a FREE event. All are welcome but please do register for a ticket on Eventbrite here.
