WORSHIP AT OUR LOCAL CARE HOMES: Greenbank is one of a group of local churches who are on a rota for taking worship on Sunday afternoons at Bonnyton, Eastwoodhill, Mearnskirk and Williamwood care homes. The services last for half an hour and mainly involve singing some of the old favourite hymns and choruses. Each team is only required every two to three months so it would not be a heavy commitment. If you are interested in becoming involved with this worship, please contact Elizabeth Wishart (644 4471) or Jane Livingston (586 6272).
SAINSBURY’S ACTIVE KIDS VOUCHERS are being collected by John Meek for B.B. equipment. There is a designated box in the Hall of Friendship.

LODGING HOUSE MISSION EASTER APPEAL: Please support the LHM this Easter by making a cash donation. The LHM regrets if it seems that they are repeatedly asking for money, but the reality of their work is that they can only continue to offer food and shelter to Glasgow’s homeless and hungry through the kindness and generosity of churches like ours. This Easter, their numbers are likely to be significantly higher, given that the LHM has been hosting the Winter Night Shelter. Donations can be made by post (Lodging House Mission, 35 East Campbell Street, Glasgow G1 5DT ), telephone ( 0141 552 0285 ), online via their website www.lhm-glasgow.org.uk, or you can see me for a donation envelope. Thank you for your continued support. Alison Allan
