THE FEBRUARY & MARCH PRESBYTERY REPORTS are available in the Centenary Chapel for those members of the Kirk Session who did not receive them by email.
SPECIAL NOTICE – We have had notification of bogus workmen operating in the Clarkston area recently. It is unusual these days for reputable companies to go around knocking on doors looking for business so treat each caller with a huge dose of suspicion. NEVER agree on the doorstep to any work being done for you. ALWAYS tell the caller politely that you’ll think about it and will talk to someone else before making a decision (this normally deters bogus callers). NEVER pay money up front unless you receive a proper invoice (check that there’s a VAT registration number – the absence of one is a tell-tale sign that things aren’t quite right) and never accept a lift to the bank to withdraw money. ALWAYS try and get the name of the individual and/or company – you can easily check them out by phoning East Renfrewshire Trading Standards on 0800 013 0076 (confidential helpline). Take time before making a decision ask a family member for advice or phone a friend.
THE CHURCH OFFICE will be closed on Friday of next week, but open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, 9-2.30pm.
CHRISTIAN AID WEEK 2019 – Christian aid week will run from 12th May to 18th May and your help with the annual door to door collection would be much appreciated.

Please consider making a donation for your Big Brekkie refreshments, as it will provide a much needed boost to the work of Christian aid at the start of the annual collection week. Any further information can be obtained by contacting Mark on 638 3916.
