A reminder that this Sunday evening – 3rd December – there will be a ‘Come and Sing‘ Christmas Carol service in Abronhill Parish Church at 6.30pm.
There will be carols old and new with some spoken words in-between groups of carols, so the congregation can catch their breath! There will also be refreshments afterwards.
