INTIMATIONS 14th February 2016
MEMBERS OF OUR PARTNER CHURCH, in the east end of Glasgow, Garthamlock & Craigend East Parish Church, have combined their love of knitting/crocheting into a SHAWL MINISTRY which reaches out to those in need of comfort and support, as well as in celebration and joy. The shawl makers begin with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The shawls are very simple to make and upon completion, a final blessing is offered before it is packed away in tissue to be passed on to someone. Made in prayer and completed in prayer, the shawls are often made and given to recipients anonymously. If you feel that you want to know more about, or get involved in this Shawl Ministry you are invited to a meeting on Monday 15th February at 7.30pm at Garthamlock & Craigend East Parish Church. On this evening you will hear some of the amazing stories of those who have already embarked on this very special ministry. If you would like to go, please contact Jane at the church office [644 1841] and leave your name with her. If you need a lift to Garthlamlock transport is available. After the meeting on the 15th February it is hoped that people from both churches will be able to work together on this Shawl Ministry.
