CHURCH TRANSPORT The Greenbank Church transport service enables some members to attend church each Sunday throughout the year. Without the willing assistance of our drivers, these members would have great difficulty getting to church regularly. Due to a retirement from the rota, there is currently an urgent need for a driver to participate in the rota, which would require a commitment on one Sunday every 6 weeks. If you feel you could help with this valuable and worthwhile service, please see Mark Allan after the service or phone 0141 638 3916.
