Walking Group: Our next walk will take place on Saturday 29th April. The destination on this occasion is a carpark at Loch Turret, which is near Crief. Walkers will have the choice of two walks, the harder walk involves a climb up to the ridge overlooking Loch Turret, the walkers will then continue along the ridge, they will then descend down to the Lochside where they will then return along the Lochside to the carpark. This walk is just over 10 miles. The easier walk will see this group walking along the lochside to the far end and then returning back along the same path, this walk is just under 6 miles.
Those interested in coming should meet outside the church at 8:30. travel will be in shared cars.
Foodbank AGM: The Rutherglen & Cambuslang Foodbank AGM will be held in the United Reformed Church, 69 Johnstone Drive, Rutherglen, G73 2QA on Thursday 27 April at 7pm. If you want to find out a bit more about what the Foodbank does please come along. Everyone welcome.
Fellowship Team: There will be a meeting of the Fellowship Team next Sunday, 30 April in the Morriston Room after the service.

Cambuslang & District Voluntary Care Club: Sponsored Silence
On the evening of 10th May, Cambuslang & District Voluntary Care Club will be holding a Sponsored Silence for one hour. One hour, to
most people doesn’t seem much of a challenge but for our Club members it is a big challenge because our usual Club nights are noisy, chatty and very lively. If you would like to support the Club by sponsoring our members with a small donation it would be very much appreciated. Sponsor Sheets are on the table around the Church Office or please speak with Margaret MacFarlane or May Fotheringham.
Plant Sale: The Fundraising Group will be holding a plant sale again this year on Saturday 13 May from 10am until 1pm.
In addition to the plants there will be other activities (particularly suitable for children) organised by the Scouts. More details will follow but meantime please put the date in your diary!
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.
