Parish Church

Last Sunday’s service was conducted by the Rev. Helen Cook. On door duty were Linda McGarry and John Johnstone. During the intimations a warm welcome was extended to the Clan Paisley who joined us in Worship. Readings were carried out by Beverley Paisley Williams, Lady Jane and Lord Westerlea. The pipe music was played by Robert K. Gibb and once again we were priviledged to hear the lovely singing of Grace Douglas. The funeral service for Archie Bell took place on Tuesday, June 24. Our deepest sympathy to the family. This Sunday’s service is at the usual time of 11.15 a.m. Teas will be served after worship and everyone is welcome. Anyone requiring the services of a minister should contact the Rev. Helen Cook on 01786 464128.
