ON SATURDAY 8TH JULY THE KWENDERANA PARTNERSHIP is holding a Strawberry Afternoon Tea in Busby Church with a few stalls as well. The tickets are £5 and are available from Christine Bryden (07786 314779). This should be a lovely afternoon so please support our efforts as this will be the first time Busby has hosted this event. Donations of baking and unwanted gifts would be most welcome for the stalls as well.
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. You will be contacted on the Friday of the preceding week with the readings.
THE SOCIAL EVENTS COMMITTEE has trialled afternoon teas in various locations and feels this is something that is worthwhile continuing in an effort to help combat loneliness in our community, particularly amongst the elderly. Volunteers from the congregation are required for this initiative, namely drivers, servers and bakers. If you would like to volunteer please add your name to the list in the Centenary Chapel or contact the church office at email@example.com or on 644 1841.
USE IT OR LOSE IT: when the new health centre on Eastwoodmains Road opened the number 375 bus service was introduced. It connects Netherlee to Clarkston Toll then on to Spiersbridge. It complements the number 374 to provide a half hourly service. The 375 will be reviewed in the near future and if found to be underused will be withdrawn. Please use this bus if you can to retain the service. Further information can be found on the notice board in the Hall of Friendship.
THE FLOWER LIST 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.
