Parish Church

Last Sunday’s service was conducted by Philip Harkings, chaplain for F.V.R.H. Philip was also our organist due to Elizabeth still being unwell. We wish her a speedy recovery. On door duty were Linda McGarry and Ray Buchanan. A warm welcome is extended to all to attend this Sunday’s service which will be conducted by the Rev. Murdo Campbell who will introduce Mrs Monica MacDonald OLM to the congregation. A fellowship tea will be served after worship allowing time for a chat with Monica. Monica will be ordained into St Helen’s Church, Bonnybridge tonight (Thursday), service commencing 7 p.m. The Friendship group will meet in the church on Wednesday at 7 p.m. Tickets are now on sale for the next social event in Slamannan Bowling Club on Friday, October 31.
