John Meek Our Church Officer

Our beloved Church officer, John Meek, was surprised this morning with a presentation by Rev. Jeanne Roddick on behalf of the church to mark 25 years service to Greenbank. He does not like being in the limelight, so the presentation was a closely guarded secret and he was caught unawares as he escorted the baptismal party into the chancel at the beginning of the service. Congratulations John and many thanks from all of us at Greenbank....

Colour Circle at Clarkston

Lions, tigers, beaches, mountains, meadows, forests, birds and flowers were just a small selection of paintings on display and sale from our accomplished artists in Greenbank last month. The Colour Circle Art Club came about when Bert McCrum said, “When I retire I would like to start a wee art group in the church halls and we could share our knowledge” That was 20 years ago! It started off with small steps, 2 hours every second Tuesday morning. Over the years we have grown. Now the class begins every Tuesday morning at......

Greenbank Parish Striders (G.P.S.)  Need Your Trainers!

With you wearing them  of course! We’re not Paula Radcliffe, Mo Farah, or even Jessica Ennis! But we enjoy our running,  jogging, strolling and STRIDING. We meet  outside the  church  on  a Monday  evening at  6.30pm,  and  then  we  do  a sociable  run  of anywhere between 2 miles and  10k.  (That latter  distance is of course  a way to con you into doing  6 miles!) No, seriously, we are not  serious, we run for fun.  And we run at any speed,  for any distance, depending on what the vote is amongst those ......
