Over the summer months we will be having a weekly hymn requested by the congregation along with up to 30 words of their reasons for choosing it. Please telephone the Church office with your request.
Hymn Choice Hymn 97 was chosen by Rev George Lind as a beautiful setting of Psalm 139. Realising that, since the time I was an embryo, I have been known and held and loved by the God of all eternity, who carries us from this life to the next.
The Rev Gordon Armstrong and Rev George Lind will be available in the church on Tuesdays from 11am until 3pm. Prayers will be said on the hour by the ministers.

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.
ECO Plastic is used in many items, clothing, food packets, electronics, bottles, paints & building materials. It is a vital component of cars, phones & computers, homes & gardens and surrounds us all the time but many end up in the sea at the cost of marine life.
10 worst offenders are:
crisp packets, wet wipes, sandwich packaging, sauce sachets, ready made meal trays, pet food pouches, cotton buds, plant pots, plastic drinking straws, foilized wrapping paper.
Can you make 1 change to protect our seas and marine life?
