MALAWI 2018 – I would like to express my appreciation for the huge generosity in support of Ekwendeni Hospital and HIV/AIDs programme.  Your donations will make life better and easier for very many people.  Thank you from me and from the Williamwood High School 2018 team. Jeanne Roddick

VOLUNTEERS TO READ THE BIBLE LESSONS OVER THE NEXT 3 MONTHS would be much appreciated. A new list is available in the Centenary Chapel and if you would be willing to read the lesson please add your name and telephone number to the service of your choice. We are always looking for new volunteers, so even if you have never read the lesson before please consider adding your name to the list. You will be contacted on the Friday of the preceding week with the readings.

COPIES OF MAY’S PRESBYTERY REPORT are now available in the Centenary Chapel.

SCRIPTURE UNION BIBLE READING NOTES for the next quarter are available for those who ordered them in the Centenary Chapel.

COSY CAFÉ – The number of children attending has grown and volunteers are now required urgently as ideally 3 adult volunteers should be in attendance each week. Without additional volunteers it will not be possible to run Cosy Café. Your time commitment would be one Friday afternoon roughly once a month from 2.45pm till 4pm.   You would be required to make hot chocolate and toast for the young people and interact with them. If you think this is something you can help with please contact the church office on 644 1841 or greenbank.office@tiscali.co.uk as soon as possible.

SNAP COMMUNITY YOUTH CLUB is looking for volunteers to help on Saturday evenings 6.30pm-9.30pm during term time. If you feel you are able to give up a Saturday evening, even if it’s one evening per year, please contact Jeanne or email snap@greenbankglasgow.org.uk

THE CLARKSTON COMMUNITY CHOIR ANNUAL SUMMER CONCERT took place last week and made and grand total of £1,872 which was split equally between the chosen charities of Parkinson’s and Motor Neurone Disease, with each receiving £936. Many thanks are due to everyone who took part and also to those who supported the event or helped in any way to make the night such a success.

FINAL DETAILS FOR THE EASTWOOD INTER CHURCHES BOWLS EVENT on Saturday, 30th June are now available. Entry is £4 per player and players are asked to be at Giffnock Bowling Club by 1.45pm for a 2 pm start. Afternoon tea will be served. I have received 2 team entries so far. If you cannot put a team together, please turn up on the day and you will get a game. Any further team entries should be given to me by phone on 585 0008 or email at w.robertson4@ntlworld.com

LODGING HOUSE MISSION ANNUAL FUNDRAISING DAY – The annual sponsored cycle is taking place on Saturday 25th August 2018. The route is the same as last year, leaving from Glasgow Green, covering 18 miles, and finishing at LHM itself.  Smaller routes of 5 and 10 miles are also planned, in the hope that more people will participate. A BBQ is laid on for supporters and hungry cyclists.  Even if you are not participating, come along on the day to support the cyclists, see the premises and enjoy Archie and Mark’s fine barbeque. Once again LHM is asking as many people as possible to enter, or to sponsor someone else who is taking part.  If you would like to take part, please let me know. I will be seeking sponsorship for our participants nearer the time. Alison Allan (638 3916)

THE FLOWER LIST FOR 2018 is available on the transept windowsill. Anyone wishing to donate flowers is invited to add their name at the date of their choice.

ANYONE WHO WISHES TO JOIN OR KNOW MORE ABOUT GREENBANK; or knows someone who would appreciate a visit from the Minister in hospital or wishes to be prayed for, is invited to fill out one of the POSTCARDS placed on the pew boards. Completed postcards can be handed to welcome team members at the church door or posted through the letterbox at the entrance to the halls any time during the week.
