The Spirit lives to set us free, Walk, walk in the light. He binds us all in unity, Walk, walk in the light. Walk in the light, Walk in the light, Walk in the light, Walk in the light of the Lord. Jesus promised life to all, Walk, walk in the light. The dead were wakened by his call, Walk, walk in the light. He died in pain on Calvary, Walk, walk in the light. To save the lost like you and me, Walk, walk in the light. We know his death was not the end, Walk, walk in the light. He gave his Spirit to be our friend, Walk, walk in the light. The Spirit lives in you and me, Walk, walk in the light. His light will shine for all to see, Walk, walk in the light. Prayer of Intercession Hymn 595

The total received to date for the 820/100 Heritors Challenge Fund has now passed £42,000 and my thanks to all who have contributed to date. ● For members who wish to pay by cheque, please make the cheque payable to New Laigh Kirk and write on either the envelope or the rear of the cheque "Heritors Challenge Fund." Cheques, in an envelope, may be given to me or put in the collecting plate and I will get them at the end of the Service. ● For members paying by cash, it would be helpful if you could put your name on the envelope as I can then acknowledge your contribution and also claim back Gift Aid if you are a tax payer. I already hold Gift Aid Declarations for most members who pay Income Tax so no further paperwork is required. A £100 donation results in an additional £25 in tax reclaim. ● For members filling the collecting boxes, if you have completed the Challenge, boxes may be handed in. It would be helpful if your name and address is written on the box. Thank you for your support for The Heritors Challenge Fund and for New Laigh Kirk. Ken Stewart. NLK Walking Group.
