Christopher Gilchrist and friends are organising Charity night in aid of St. Andrew's Hospice. It will be held on Saturday 8th July in Club 100 in Holytown. Tickets are priced £5. Please see Rev Kay or Christopher for tickets and further details.
Team Jackson have been very supportive of this organisation and they are extremely grateful for what we offer each week. They have asked for a few specific items which they seem to run out of very quickly. They are in need of small items of toiletries like toothbrushes, shampoo, soap and the like. So if we could help with these basic essentials I am sure they will be received from grateful families.
Hello there folks, we are pleased to be able to let you know of our next Big Sing event. This has been organised for Sunday 25th June at 6.30pm in Bellshill Central.
This Big Sing supports a very worthwhile charity – Toilet Twinning. Please look them up online to see exactly who they support and help. Entry is once again free but an offering will be taken and also opportunities to donate before and after. We hope to have a speaker from the charity to share with us news of their work. The best Bellshill cuppa will also be available afterwards in the hall.
I've attached a poster for you to share as widely as possible. We've created a Facebook event on our page so please check that out also, like it and say you're coming. It would be great to see you and your friends join with us on the 25th for this Summer BIG Sing and we hope you'll bring a plus one with you to boost the numbers further.....Yours Alan Mathew,Organist

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.

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.
Past and Present ~ The church intends to setup a Facebook page to allows us to share stories with one another of our experiences involving Jackson Church. An opportunity not only to recall joyful and uplifting times here in Jackson Church, both past and present, but also the chance to connect to old friends and former members who may have moved away from Airdrie. We need your help! We would like to start with a couple of old photographs and stories to help generate initial interest -funny, factual, uplifting, poignant etc. So if you can provide a photograph with a story then we would like to hear from you. We also have some volunteers already willing to help administer content posted to this new page but would welcome further help from anyone else who has regular access to the Internet/Facebook.
Please contact me (Craig Taylor) via email firstname.lastname@example.org
