Parish Church

This Sunday is the fourth of the summer services, at the usual time of 11am but a shorter service! The ministry team, Amanda and Stuart, are taking us through the familiar rhyme of ‘Mondays child’ and putting a slightly different spin on it than one might have usually expected! This week we’ll be looking at Wednesday’s child. Come and join us in the church on Dorrator Road (just next to the Copper Top). Young and not so young will be very warmly welcomed! The charity shop, CPC, on Main Street, Camelon, has a new window display this week, we are thinking of families and their forthcoming preparations for children starting school in the not too distant future! Pop in to see the bargains we have, and remember, there is always a wide selection of goods available! Open as per usual, opening Monday to Thursday 10am-4pm and Friday and Saturday 10am till 1pm check out the bargains on offer, we might have just what you’re needing! Need more information on the shop, services or organisations?
