Muiravonside Church

Last Sunday, morning service in Muiravonside Parish Church was conducted by our Minister Rev. Louise McClements. During the Intimations a warm welcome was given to Mrs Jacqueline Dignan who was our ‘Organist’ for the service. At the close of the Children’s address the congregation were entertained by Miss Prya Small reciting the poem ‘The Sair Teeth’ - with Burns Night approaching, it was very apt. Well done Prya. This Sunday, the service in Muiravonside Parish Church will commence at the usual time of 11.30 a.m. and will be conducted by Rev. Louise McClements. The Sunday Club meets at the same time. The ‘Banner’ Group meets in Shieldhill Church hall on Fridays at 2 p.m. The annual ‘Memorial Service’ for those who have lost a loved one takes place here in the church on Thursday, February 5 at 7 p.m. Refreshment will be served afterwards.
