Parish Church

Last Sunday’s service was conducted by the Rev. Helen Cook. On door duty were Ray Buchanan and Linda McGarry. Bible readings were by Charlene Condeco and Ray Buchanan. The sponsored walk held on Sunday, May 18 realised the sum of £652 with grateful thanks to the four people who took part. Boxes are still in the church for the Falkirk Food Bank, and all donations of non-perishable goods are very much appreciated. The Friendship group will meet in the church on Tuesday, July 15, at 7 p.m. Anyone requiring the services of a minister should contact Rev. Helen Cook on 01786 464128.
