Mary’s Meals

Last Sunday we celebrated an impressive £335.00 that had been donated through our congregations Harvest offering for Mary’s Meals.  That figure has rocketed to £525!  This is an incredible generous amount that has been sent from our community to help feed and educate some of the world’s most vulnerable young people. 


Shoebox Appeal

In continuation of our caring for others, the annual Shoebox Appeal for Blythswood Care is ongoing, and it is hoped that we will still be able to send boxes from Dreghorn and Springside to countries in Eastern Europe.  Please phone Sheena Henderson on 01294 213142 for more information. 


Thank You Margaret

The Kirk Session have thanked our recently retired Session Clerk Margaret Carey, by making a gift to her.  This is a small way of acknowledging nine and a half years of faithful service which has seen the congregation through the retirement of your former minister, various interim moderators and a locum and most recently the induction of your new minister.  A challenging shift and a well-deserved retirement, thank you to Margaret and her husband Walter for all the years of support.
