    Speak Out: Doing Politics Differently

    Speak Out commits the church to a long term process of advocating for and delivering change, with a more intentional focus on resourcing local congregations and communities.

    At the heart of the campaign is a commitment to working alongside those on the sharp end of injustice and poverty – making real the Church of Scotland’s on going commitment to the poorest and most marginalised, not just out of sympathy but because that is the Gospel way to live. The Doing Politics Differently film was developed in response to a consultation that revealed a strong desire for more participative democracy.

    Read more and watch the film here:


    Look out for the further six films being released over the coming few months. Please do share these with your congregations – and get in touch to share any examples you may have of how our themes are being enacted in your communities. We look forward to working with you and resourcing churches and communities over the coming years as Speak Out becomes an integral part of the work of the church.


    Rev Kay URGES you to either read this magazine online or buy one from the few we get delivered to the church via George Kane. This month especially has some great articles in it pertaining to the church and how it is changing and the part we have to play in keeping the church ALIVE!! So get reading !


    To make my job easier when I am processing the accounts, I would appreciate if you could let me know if you amend or cancel your standing order.  Thanks,      Morag Hamilton


    The creche has loads of toys, games etc for the wee ones to play with each week, some of which are battery operated. Any donation of AA or AAA batteries will be very much appreciated – even if it's the wee cheap ones that only last a few weeks. As you can imagine the kids love to play with toys that make noises so just like you do with the sweeties for Rev Kay, if you are able to pick up a few £1 packets then please hand them in to Jennifer any Sunday, thanks.


    As you know our Harvest donations  went to the foodbank. The volunteers who received it were extremely grateful and said it would help local families who are 'down on their luck' at present. Although they are grateful for all kinds of foodstuff, they are desperately needing every day toiletries e.g. toilet roll, toothpaste, shampoo etc., and especially baby nappies. To this end we are going to have a box for donations and if you are able to donate something every now and again it would be really appreciated – food or otherwise. Thanks


    This is a local volunteer organisation formed of mainly parents who have been affected by alcoholism and addiction in the community. They are relatively new and mainly self supporting. They have a small office in a port-a-cabin 1 Petersburn Road ( beside the burger van) Please support them in your prayers and Rev Kay will intimate any fundraising events as she gets them. If you want to find out more they can be contacted at loveandlight.org@gmail.com or contact their manager Jane Chambers on 07875634701 or Bill on 07483102974

    Our Church is starting a new adventure as an Eco-congregation. This is an exciting way of showing how passionately we care about God's creation. It means we are joining with other congregations all over Scotland and the rest of the world, of all denominations, in celebration of God's creation in all it's wonderful diversity, and in making our commitment to care for it.

    We hope this will enhance our worship and our church life in lots of different ways. To start with we are getting together a group of interested people, no matter what age or whether you're a member, no restrictions, to consider how take this venture forward in our own congregation. The only qualification is an interest.

    Please give your name to the minister or Drew Main if you're interested.


    Resettlement of Syrian Refugees Andrea Sinclair, The Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme Advisor (Interim) for

    South Lanarkshire Council has asked if the churches in the Presbytery could put out a call for donations for clothes suitable to teenage children (both boys and girls) and items for younger

    children – especially girls. Some of the families who are now settled into their new homes are keen to work on their gardens. So if there are any keen gardeners, perhaps they would be able to offer spare plants/seedlings; flowers or vegetables would be most welcome.
