Do you remember some years ago, we invited people to bring back a tea towel from their holidays for the church kitchen? We had a tremendous response then, however we appear to have worn them out! Here is a challenge – let’s see if we can gather 20 tea towels from our outings and holidays this year. We’ll make a display in the church hall in September and we’ll see how many towns and countries have benefitted from a visit from a member of Cambuslang parish Church. Hand your tea towel to Anna Inglis or Hilary McDougall for safekeeping in the meantime.
The next Kirk Session meeting will take place on Tuesday 31st May at 7.30pm. If you are not able to attend, please send your apologies toour Session Clerk, Scott Hamilton. ku.gro.hcruhchsirapgnalsubmacnull@krelcnoisses
