Another sunny day, another Sunday, the children led the service this morning with an enjoyable show of faith. Following the children’s event we had the children’s prize giving for all their hard work during the year. The story club is being well supported and with the summer holidays now on the horizon, the church’s holiday club is planned for the week of August 11. Next Sunday, June 29, the morning service conducted by our Locum Minster Rev. David Wandrum is at 11am. Choir practice at 9.45 a.m., Prayer Meeting in the Vestry at 10.30 a.m., No Youth Church. Creche in the Fellowship Room at 11 a.m. on duty are J Lewis & A Andrews. On duty for Readings M. Laing and Prayer D. Sheehan.
Thank you to all who turned up to help with the balsam bash on Sunday. Some ground was cleared but it is a huge task. Look out for more balam bash days before the seeds set.
This walk leaves from Polmont Station (by the bowling club) at 7 p.m. every Tuesday. Our walkers look forward to seeing you there for a blether along the way. For more information please call (01324) 673703.
