Parish Church

During Sunday morning worship the theme was “Signposts”. The children were presented with gifts, with reminiscence of “prize-giving” ceremonies in days gone by. This was followed by the poignant hymn “One more step”. Will the ladies going to the Guild Rally today (Thursday) please note the bus departs from Laurieston Square at 6.30 p.m. prompt. On door duty this Sunday are Mrs M. Andrew, Mrs J. White, Mrs C. Park and Mrs S. Marshall. The flowers have been donated by Douglas and Sheila Marshall. On tea duty are Mrs H. Pullar, Mrs M. Hoggan, Mrs M. Erskine and Miss M. Brown.
