Meet and 2 Veg. The Meet and 2 Veg project has been running successfully now for a number of weeks and has approximately 40 folk turning up on each Monday and Wednesday. The project prevents food going to landfill and provides support for many people who are struggling, although it is open to anyone who wants to come along. In order to sustain the success of the project we would like to encourage more folk to volunteer once a month either to pick up food from local supermarkets and/or to set up and distribute food on the night. If you think you could help out, please speak to Bob McDougall or Tony Neeson.
A meeting of the Fundraising Team will be held on Tuesday 23rd September at 7.30.pm via Zoom
Arts and Crafts exhibition 28th October 2022
I hope you have all been busy with your paint brushes, knitting needles etc over the summer break preparing some exhibits for our art and crafts exhibition which will be held in the hall. Remember there will be prizes for all ages, from the youngest to the more senior exhibitors.
All work of arts and crafts can be submitted. Lets show the general public just what talented people we have in our church.
For more information/ questions speak to Tony Neeson or Alastair MacFarlane.
The Prayer Tree is situated inside the main door entrance, for anyone in the church and community who wishes to add a prayer to it.
‘Then you will call to me. You will come and pray to me, and I will answer you.’ Jeremiah 29 v12
Parking at the church – if you are ambulant, please ensure you avoid parking directly outside the church. It is necessary for those who are not ambulant, to use that limited space to enable them to access the church on Sunday mornings. Many thanks ?

Rutherglen and Cambuslang Foodbank
Katharina Nimmo is the manager of our local Rutherglen and Cambuslang Foodbank and some members of our congregation, and other local congregations, are volunteers. Their commitment allows families in need to access food and other essential products at a time in their lives when they are struggling. Your on-going commitment through donations of food ensures this vital service is able to continue.
Currently, the Foodbank require the following donations:
UHT Milk (full fat or semi skimmed)
Tins or jars of meat
Tinned rice pudding
Coffee (small sizes)
If you can also donate large carrier bags, that would be helpful too.
