Abronhill Church banner

A reminder that the organisation squares for the Church banner at Abronhill Parish Church are due to be returned by 30 May at the latest. Well done to the Anchor Boys whose square was first to be completed and handed in on 20th April.

Condorrat Parish Church

Our annual Christmas Fayre will be held in the Church halls on Saturday 30th November at 12 noon and is to be opened by Jamie Hepburn, MSP.  As well as the usual stalls and the ever popular tearoom supplying soup and rolls, the organisers hope to have a very special visitor.  They will have his Grotto ready, just in case!  Do come along – everyone is very welcome!

Remembrance Sunday:  We hosted the Remembrance Service and took part in the Service at the Memorial Wall and Memorial Corner.  This year, for the first time, there is a ‘Condorrat Banner’ purchased with money raised in the community.  This was dedicated at the Service and will be stored with the Banners of the Boys’ and Girls’ Brigades.

Guild: On 20th November the Guild will be hearing of the work of the Scottish Churches Housing Association, one of their projects.  All are welcome to come along.

Advance notice of the Condorrat Has Talent show which is to take place in the Church hall on Friday 17 January 2014 at 7pm. A wide variety of musical styles will be covered, so hopefully there’s something for everyone and a chance to see some newer talent (probably some older too!)  Tickets are now on sale at a cost of £5.00 for adults and £2.00 for children.  Proceeds are going to the Organ Fund. If tickets sell quickly there may be a second performance on Saturday the 18th.

Condorrat Church ‘Banner Headlines’

The Banner group has produced a beautiful banner depicting all the groups within our church under the heading of Bind Us Together. This lovely work is now proudly displayed in the church for all to see and appreciate.

    • Sunday 16th June was the Sunday School’s Prize-giving.  The service was a joyful one with the children entertaining us with action songs and encouraging us all to join in a lively rendition of Alleluia Praise the Lord.  All the men were given a chocolate and book mark to celebrate Father’s Day.  Thank you Sunday School and teachers.
    • The Guild, the Boys’ and Girls’ Brigades have all had another busy and interesting year and are now taking a break for the summer.
    • Tickets are now available for the Ladies Lunch and Fashion Show at the Westerwood Hotel on Saturday 21st September. All proceeds will go to our Sanctuary Refurbishment Project.  The fund is now growing due to the many fund-raising events and some recent substantial grants for which we are extremely grateful.
