Croy Silver Band will again be leading the congregational singing and we will be joined by the choir from one of the local primary schools as well as the Columban Singers from Kilsyth.
No tickets are required, but donations taken at the end of the service will be shared between the Third World Group from Sacred Heart Church and Christian Aid.

“Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Church, Happy Birthday to you”. We all have birthdays, and the Christian Church is no different.
Did you know the Church had a birthday? When Jesus had been resurrected, he said he would send a helper – the Holy Spirit – to help the disciples in the work he’d asked them to do. Jesus went back to Heaven but as he did so, the Holy Spirit came down onto the disciples like flames of fire; like a strong wind. They then carried on the work that Jesus had asked them to do.
This month in J.A.F.A. Church we’re holding a birthday party! We’ll be making candles with flames, birthday cards, paper chains for our party and we’re even going to have a birthday cake!
Come along from 4 – 6pm on Sunday 29th May to Abronhill Parish Church. It’s free and you don’t even have to bring a present! Jesus is your present!
