THINKING ALLOWED AT CAIRNS: Our next event “Cut Off from the Mainland” will take place on Thursday 10th January when a panel comprising of Rev Mary Henderson, Father Willie Boyd, Rev Scott McKenna, Rev Roddy Hamilton and Rev Andrew Frater will answer questions posed by the audience. If you wish more information about the panel please see the sheet entitled, “Thinking Allowed at Cairns” which is on the noticeboard in the halls’ corridor outside the Fraser Hall. Although the final date for receipt of questions for the panel is Friday, 4th January, as the opening times of the office over the festive period will be limited, it might be a good idea to get any questions into Cairns office before the seasonal break. Please email your question to and entitle it “Question for Cut Off from the Mainland”. It is important that if you send in a question, you will be present on the night to either ask the question personally, or have someone there who will ask it for you. The Thinking Allowed team look forward to seeing you at Cairns in the New Year. [Cairns Parish Church, 11 Buchanan Drive, Milngavie, G62 8AW].

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.
