Sunday Club The children will join us for the whole service today. Next Sunday, we return to the usual pattern, and the Sunday Club for children aged 3 years old to Primary 7 will meet in our halls following the Children’s Time – all children welcome if they wish. If you have younger children, feel free to stay in church with them, but if you need to leave, the Welcome Area at the main door is available. We are also in need of a few more adult helpers. Please speak to Peter or Karen if you can help!

Seniors Communion Service A special Communion for “senior” members and friends of the Cambuslang Parish Church will be held on Thursday, 27 April 2023 at 2pm. Tea, coffee and delicious homemade scones, pancakes etc will be served in the hall after the service. Due to the cost of postage, we regret that invitations will not be posted out for this, or future events organised by the Pastoral Care Team. Invitations are available in the Welcome Area. Your help in passing on invitations to others would be much appreciated. Completed tear-off slips attached to invitations can be handed to any member of the Pastoral Care Team, sent into the Church Office or dropped into the box in the Welcome Area marked “Pastoral Care Team Seniors’ Communion” by Sunday 23 April.

Summer Holiday Club: This year’s Summer Holiday Club will be on Tuesday 1 & Wednesday 2 August. It will run from 9.30am to 4.30pm. This has been a very successful format in the club’s we have run before. What we need is people to volunteer as a leader. Please think about it. If you do not have a PVG, we will have to start the process now. Without your help we cannot run the club, and it is a lot of fun both for the kids and the helpers. Please speak to Karen Hamilton for more information.
