Muiravonside Church

Last Sunday, Morning Service at 11 a.m in Muiravonside Parish Church was conducted by Mrs Amanda McQuarrie. During the intimations a warm welcome was give to Mrs Jacqueline Dignan who was our organist for the service. The boxes are still available in the church for any donations towards the Falkirk Food Bank, and the Falkirk Homeless Project. This Sunday, Morning service will be held at the usual time of 11.30 a.m. The visit of Liz Orr took place, and it was interesting to hear how her journey to the Readership was progressing. After the service we enjoyed some good fellowship with her and will keep up to date with her continuing journey. The tea and coffee was an added bonus to all who stayed behind. Thanks again to all who helped in organising this event. The choir restarts on Monday, September 2 in church at 2.30 p.m. New members will be made very welcome.
