Due to family circumstances, Ruth would like to pause the Locum Appointment to support family from Monday 10th June. She hopes to be available again from Monday 29th July (7 weeks, 7 Sundays). However, circumstances do not allow her to make a firm commitment to return, and so a review mid-July was approved by the Kirk Session.

Anyone requiring the services of a minister from Monday 10th June, please contact the church office on 0141 644 1841 or

KIRK SESSION MEETING: The next meeting of the Kirk Session will be on Monday 24th June at 7.30pm in the Cowley Hall.

ACCESS TO COWLEY HALL: While services are being held in the Cowley Hall, we ask that people enter the hall via the doors to the right of the stairs as you approach the halls, rather than through the link building.

THANK YOU: Heartfelt thanks to all who were able to help last week with clearing the church; it was an immense task with all assistance greatly appreciated.

LIVE STREAMING OF SERVICES: Whilst we are holding services in the Church halls, unfortunately we will not be able to live stream the services.

CHURCH GROUNDS MAINTENANCE: There is an urgent need for additional volunteers to help with the maintenance of the Church and Manse grounds. The work involves weeding, cutting grass, trimming bushes and trees, and sweeping paths and driveways. Much of this work can be done at times which suit individuals, however, some duties also involve the use of some heavy items of machinery. If you feel that you can help, please contact Mark Allan, Grounds Convener, on 07401 822207.
