The program this year has been written by the Carol Service this year—whether it should be before or The Management Committee have had to oversee a repair to the heating pipes in the Main Hall because of a leaking connection which forced the Day Centre to move to the Coulston Room. The repair is very satisfactory but the whole system is old fashioned and they are proposing to ask for an estimate to replace it to modern standards. Hall Bookings have caused some problems for Church -related activities since some organisations have booked very far in advance. While we appreciate the secure income this provides the Elders suggested that bookings should be at a maximum of twelve months ahead on a rolling basis so that for example Christian Aid could also use the Building when they require it. The comfort of the congregation was also discussed in that some churches have cushions on their pews rather than the strips of carpet on offer at Lowther Street. It is suggested that members of the congregation might consider contributing towards fitted cushions– another topic for the A.G.M.? The date of the Spring Gift Day was confirmed as April 26th. There will be an Organ Recital given by our old friend Michael Cannon and a Tea. The Tea will be at 5.oo p.m. and the Recital will be before it for about half an hour.
