8)   Food Safety

Many of the ministries within StAB serve food. It’s a wonderful way of expressing God’s welcome and love. The Kirk Session is responsible for ensuring appropriate standards of food hygiene are followed.  It is very grateful to the Beacon for organising a day’s training in the hall on Friday 26 January.  A professional trainer running a recognised course, so people can get the qualification they require. Can I urge everyone who is involved in any ministry that serves food to take this opportunity of gaining or refreshing your knowledge of food safety.   Please give your name to Elaine Martin or Julie Scanlon.
