Reachout Trust – are hoping to have an SU gap year placed with them this year. It has been 4 years since our last gap year left. Over the years SU gap year have been a great asset to the work of the trust and have also supported the work of local churches too. We are excited to hopefully have someone join us this year and look forward to seeing how God will work through and in this young person throughout the year. This year’s student will hopefully join us at the beginning of September and be with us until August next year. We are therefore looking for someone who would be willing to host them for the year. The host family would receive a small amount of money to help with extra costs they would incur, from SU. Could you please let people in your congregations know about this need. Further information available from Karen Hamilton.
Church office is open- every Thursday from 10am to 4pm. Or call 0141 642 9271.
Halls Convenor: please send any enquiries about hall bookings etc to Bob McDougall
