A huge thanks to all who made our plant sale and coffee morning such a success last Saturday. 

A special vote of thanks goes to Linda and Nigel Wunsch along with Brown’s Garden Centre in the Clyde valley, without whom our plant sale could not have happened. The role of honour includes:

  • The Scouts, for helping to transport the plants
  • Gouldings Garden Centre, for donating hanging baskets
  • The Fellowship Team, for organising the coffee morning
  • The ‘front of house’ team
  • And all who came along and supported the event.

Meet & 2 veg A new Kirk Session project called ‘Meet & 2 veg’ is up and running on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 9.15-10pm.  This enables surplus food from supermarkets to be distributed free of charge, from the church building to anyone in our community.

We are looking for volunteers to help collect items from Greggs in Western Rd and Tesco in Hamilton Rd  between 8 15 – 8 45 pm and bring to the church building. If you can help, please contact Jan Ritchie  0141 583 2018.
