Dates for your Diary
Due to Government restrictions on Public Gatherings, Sunday Services have been suspended by order of Scottish Parliament for the time being. If the covid level reduces to a sufficient tier our next church service will resume subject to the agreed booking arrangement.
It is our intention to show a video service on the Web and Facebook on the first Sunday of each month.
Hymn choice 532 was chosen by Margaret Armstrong as it reminds her of the simplicity of the gospel and of the unfaltering love of Jesus.
Weekly Church Opening Due to the current tier 4 restrictions that are in place we are unable to continue with our regular opening of the church on Tuesdays. This will resume as soon as these restrictions change.
Mission Fund Mission boxes can be handed into the Church on Tuesdays between 11.00am - 3.00pm or at any Sunday Service if you happen to be in attendance. Our plan is to make initial donations to Ferguslie Pre Five Centre and Blue Triangle Housing Association at Bruce Court. Thanks to all who continue to support the Fund throughout lockdown.
During this time of social isolation you will be receiving phone calls from Rev. Gordon, Rev George, Catriona and your Elder, but please do contact the Church Office if you are feeling lonely or require shopping.
Passing the time - Have you found difficulty in passing the time? Perhaps you have taken up a new interest? If so why not share it with others, we would love to hear from you. Telephone the church office or send an email to email@example.com
