DOOR WELCOMING DUTY At both St Stephen’s and the Old High we need new volunteers to help welcome people to church. This is a great help in the church and a good way to meet more people. If you or someone you know would be willing to do this for a few Sundays a year it would be greatly appreciated. As well as greeting people, some of our welcomers help with serving tea and counting the offering; but you don’t have to do these things. Contact at St Stephen’s: Deborah Macrae dmmacraeuwclub.net; Old High: Margaret Sutherland margaretsutherland23talktalk.net. ‘Whoever welcomes you welcomes me’ Matthew 10.40.
OLD HIGH MUSIC the inaugural recital will be on Saturday 20 February at 12 noon when there will be the chance to hear a gifted young pianist, Hyuk Namkoong, play Sonatas by Bach, Beethoven and Kapustin. Hyuk is currently studying for a Masters degree at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow. He has won various music awards, including, most recently the New Piano Stars Competition. This promises to be a wonderful hour of music. The monthly programme of lunchtime recitals will continue this year on Saturdays at the Old High, comprising choral concerts, organ and instrumental recitals. Full details available shortly.
