The Shawl Ministry

Members of our partner church, in the east end of Glasgow, Garthamlock and Craigend East Parish Church, have combined their love of knitting/crocheting into a Shawl Ministry which reaches out to those in need of comfort and support, as well as in celebration and joy. Some recipients continue the kindness by making a shawl for someone else. Thus, the prayer blessings ripple from person-to-person, with both the giver and receiver feeling the embrace of God’s love around them. Some shawls have been given to people undergoing medical procedures; as a comfort after a loss or in times of stress; during bereavement; giving birth, nursing a baby; as a wedding gift; during an illness and recovery; ministering to others …there are endless possibilities!
If you feel that you want to know more about, or get involved in this Shawl Ministry you are invited to a meeting on Monday 15th February at 7.30pm at Garthamlock and Craigend East Parish Church. If you need a lift to Garthlamlock transport is available. After the meeting on the 15th February it is hoped that people from both churches will be able to work together on this Shawl Ministry.
