Abronhill Praise Group Simcha (which is Hebrew for ‘joy’) will be singing in St Mungo’s Church on Friday 12th April at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £4.00 which includes tea. This event is a fundraiser in aid of the Scottish Bible Society.
Abronhill Parish Church hosts its next J.A.F.A. Church this Sunday, 31st March, starting at 4pm.
J.A.F.A. Church (Jesus and Families Altogether) is for families only, so adults must be accompanied by children, and children must be accompanied by an adult they know – parent, grandparent, etc. It is a time of family worship, crafts and activities where people can get to know each other and get to know Jesus.
The next Messy Church organised by Condorrat and Cumbernauld Old Parish Churches will be happening at the Forge Community Centre, Balloch this coming Sunday, Easter Day, starting around 4pm.
Messy Church is a couple of hours of fun and mess; a time for people to come together and enjoy crafts and activities, hear stories from the Bible, ending with a time of celebration and then dinner. Messy Church is open to everyone and the Points North Messy Church team will be delighted to welcome you there.
Two years of war have had a devastating impact on many Syrian families and have left more than four million people in need of aid. In many parts of the country the health system has effectively collapsed, water supplies have been cut and food is in short supply.
In addition, over one million people have now fled to the neighbouring countries of Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq. Refugees are arriving at camps which are already stretched to capacity, and many families are living in crude shelters they have built themselves, with host families in overcrowded conditions or in partially finished buildings. Please help if you can at www.dec.org.uk.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is holding its Easter Toddlers’ Praise tomorrow, Saturday 23rd March, starting around 11am. This is a time of songs, stories, prayers and activities for the wee ones and their families with tea/coffee for the grown-ups and juice for the youngsters.
We invite those attending to bring along, if they wish, a small chocolate Easter Egg – these will be passed on to children in the Glasgow area, via the Social Work Department, who wouldn’t otherwise get one. Thank you.
We are delighted to report that last Saturday’s Coffee Morning and Craft Fair raised the sum of £861 towards our Sanctuary Refurbishment Fund. Many thanks to all involved.
