Poppy Project Update: If you would like to paint a poppy for the project you can come along after the service on Sunday 22 October in the Small Hall until 12.30pm. Thank you to everyone who has helped so far collecting and cutting bottles and knitting poppies too. The response has been great from the organisations that are connected to Cambuslang Parish Church to paint poppies.

The vision to have the outside of the church decorated for Remembrance Sunday will happen thanks to everyone’s help.
