Muiravonside Church

Last Sunday, Morning Service in Muiravonside Parish Church was conducted by the Minister the Rev. Louise McClements. During the Intimations a warm welcome was given to Mrs Jacqueline Dignan, our organist for the service. During the service the Sacrament of Baptism took place, when Evan Taylor, infant son of Alison and Stevie Ramage was welcomed into the church family. Another happy occasion, and the congregation again swelled by the attendance of the friends and family of Alison and Stevie. This Sunday, Morning service in Muiravonside Parish Church will commence at the usual time of 11.30am and will be conducted by the Minister the Rev. Louise McClements. The Falkirk food bank and the Falkirk homeless project is still ongoing and there is a box in the vestibule to collect any donations for these causes. If anyone is interested in receiving a copy of the Morning service, please see Jackie Napier after the service.
