I am sure, like me, you are delighted at the news that Karen Hamilton has started a phased return to work as your Deacon. As you know, Karen has been quite unwell recently. Please continue to pray for Karen as she eases back into her daily and weekly routine in serving God here in Cambuslang Parish Church. At the same time, I would ask you to continue to pray for your minister, Peter Nimmo, as well as for his wife, Katharina. Peter remains ill and will be off work for the foreseeable future. This means that I will continue to serve as your interim moderator. If there is anything you are concerned about and would wish to discuss, do not hesitate to contact me directly via telephone or email. I will be happy to assist in any way I can. Now, it only remains for me to offer my very best wishes to you and yours for a joyful and faith-filled Christmas. In the birth of the Christ-child, we welcome hope, and the promise of peace. And, oh how our world needs a large dose of both at this time in history.
Derek W. Hughes.

Pastoral Visits URGENT SUPPORT REQUIRED
As part of our ongoing support for the Congregation, I have been asked to form a group to hopefully visit all members who require one, whether at home or in hospital.
If you would like to join the team please contact me, Janet Stewart, either via email: ku.oc.egattocgnihtrafynnepnull@yj or by my mobile: 07850376703.
It would be of great help if you would let me know if this is something you would consider, also if you know of anyone who would benefit from a visit. This is an extremely important part of our Church work.
Worship in the Waiting: tonight, 7 pm at Flemington Hallside Parish Church. Please join us as we sing together and worship in the waiting for the birth of Jesus.
The Neighbourly will meet on Wednesday 13 December at 2.15pm in the Small Hall for their Christmas Party. All welcome.
Halls Convenor: please send any enquiries about hall bookings etc to our Halls Convenor Derek Burns – email moc.liamgnull@cpcsnrubkered
Katharina Nimmo will be delighted to receive your announcements by Tuesday at 6pm for inclusion in the Order of Service.
