Last Sunday, Mr Napier introduced and welcomed Rev. Philip Hacking to the congregation who then went on to conduct morning service in Muiravonside Parish Church. During the Intimations, a warm welcome was given to Mrs Jacqueline Dignan, our organist for the service. A presentation of a basket of flowers was made to Mr and Mrs Peter Duncan on the occasion of their anniversary of 65 years of married life. A warm round of applause was given to them by the congregation. This Sunday, the service in Muiravonside Parish Church will commence at the usual time of 11.30 a.m. and will be conducted by the Minister Rev. Louise McClements. The Sunday Club meets at the same time. The ASM will take place here in church after Morning Service this Sunday. Boxes are still available in church for your donations towards both the Falkirk Foodbank and the Falkirk Homeless Project.
