Travel through Holy Week at our Parish Grouping/ecumenical services.  Please see below for details.

Following the most recent guidance from the Church of Scotland regarding face coverings, the Back to Church Group has agreed that from this Sunday it should be the choice of each individual member of the congregation whether to wear a face covering within the sanctuary or not. However, for those attending worship this Sunday and next, you are still encouraged to wear a face covering when entering the church building or moving between the sanctuary and any other part of the building eg the halls. Further information will follow regarding the position after 18th April when all restrictions are due to come to an end.

Easter breakfast There will be breakfast provided in the church hall after the early service in Cambuslang Park on Easter morning.  If you would like to attend, please sign up on the sheet in the Welcome Area or on the sheet which is on the stage in the Large Hall.  Last chance today!
