Plant Sale & Coffee Morning: NEXT Saturday, 13 May 10am to 2pm. Lots of bedding plants, shrubs and hanging baskets from the Clyde Valley. Kids’ corner with plants to pot. Entry will be £2 (children free) which includes coffee/teas and delicious home baking.  The 138 Scouts will also be there with a BBQ, burgers and lots of fun activities for kids as part of their fundraising for their trip to Switzerland this summer.  Funds from the plant sale itself will be going towards the purchase of a community defibrillator to be placed outside the church. This was a great event last year and should be even better this year so come along and join the fun!

Congregational Annual Meeting will take place following the Sunday service next Sunday (14 May). We will have some printed versions of the accounts available, but you can also obtain an electronic copy by contacting the church office (details above). If you have questions about the accounts, please contact our treasurer, either by emailing or calling the church office.

Exploring Faith? Thinking about joining the church? If you have started attending church recently and would like to know more about Christianity, please get in touch with our minister, Peter. He hopes to get a few people together to explore the Christian faith and whether they would like to become members of the church. It would also be nice to have a few people who are already members to come along to encourage the new folk! Contact Peter at 0141 586 2126 or email ku.gro.dnaltocsfohcruhcnull@omminp.

Sunday Club for children aged 3 years old to Primary 7 meets 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!

Heavenly Elevenses will be held on Tuesday 9 May at 11.15am. prior to the Tuesday service. All are welcome. It promises to be a royal occasion.

Cambuslang & District Voluntary Care Club: On the evening of 10May, 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.
