“There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores

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)

Tinned fish

Tins or jars of meat

Tinned vegetables

Tinned fruit

Tinned soup

Tinned rice pudding

Tinned custard


Diluting juice

Coffee (small sizes)

If you can also donate large carrier bags, that would be helpful too.

Jesus said: ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”


Minister: The Rev Peter W Nimmo 0141 586 2126


Please note, Rev Nimmo is currently on leave of absence.
