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. Over recent years the number of volunteers has reduced, so we would be very grateful for volunteers to boost these teams. 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 or Jane Livingston.
