CHURCH GARDEN and GROUNDS . . . Winter has come and gone. Spring is in the air and that means it is time to tend the gardens and surrounding areas of the Church. Our garden receives much praise from the passing public and we do have to maintain that high standard. New volunteers are required and would be much welcomed. Hours are flexible and always in decent weather; after all you choose your own hour(s). Please contact Garry Burns
Rev Ian Taylor will be our Interim Moderator during our vacancy. Ian is Minister at Springfield Cambridge Parish Church in Bishopbriggs (One of Mark’s new neighbours!). We will have the opportunity to meet Ian on the 28th April, when he will lead us in Worship. Taking on the role of Interim Moderator is a significant commitment on Ian’s part. As a Kirk Session, we are grateful to Ian and we look forward to working with him.
Secondly, we have also been speaking to Morris Dutch, with a view to appointing him as our Locum Minister. Many folks will remember Morris, as he was our Locum Minister before Mark joined us in 2001. The paperwork has not been finalised yet, but it is hoped that Morris will be with us from the beginning of May.
The video of the Session HouseMeetings is now available
Open Doors . . . Wednesday 06 March is our first Open Doors day and will continue through to December 2019. The sheets to sign up are now available in the Church Vestibule. New volunteers are always welcome.
