The Revd David Denniston – with us from 1st March 2024
I am very honoured to have been invited to serve as Locum at Cambuslang Parish Church and am very much looking forward to meeting with you all during the period I am with you.
A native Glaswegian, I was brought up and schooled in the Southside of the city before studying Divinity at Glasgow University. Ordained in 1986, I served in parish ministries in Glasgow (Ruchazie), Fife (Kennoway), Perth (North Church) and Edinburgh (St Cuthbert’s) before being appointed as one of the Interim Ministry team in 2016. I retired last year.
I am married to Jane (also a Minister, and also now retired) and we live with our two ill-disciplined Labradors in Cumbernauld. We have three adult children and three grandchildren.
I am a keen reader (especially of history and current affairs), a keen rugby fan, and a fly fisherman. Music is a particular passion, and I am a bit of an unreconstructed 1970’s ‘prog rocker’ with indifferent song writing ability, less than average guitar playing skills, shaky vocals, and an ongoing confusion as to why fame and fortune have thus far eluded me!
Sunday Club for children aged 3 years old to Primary 7 meets in our halls following the Children’s Time – all children welcome! 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.
Liz’s Legacy – the Worship Team are looking for volunteers to help deliver flowers after the Sunday Service. If you feel that you would be able to help divide up the flowers and/or deliver them, please give your name and contact number to Lorna Morrison or Ann Boyd. Once we have volunteers we will make up a rota to let you know when your duty will be. Thanking you in anticipation.
Lorna Morrison, Convener, Worship Team
