Scottish Churches Housing Action

Next year sees the 25th anniversary of the SCHA and our Minister is the national Convener.  The Minister took part in the Edinburgh Kiltwalk on Sunday 15th September to help raise funds for the vital work in tackling homelessness.
Graeme walked 25 miles for the 25th anniversary, Graeme has written about the event in our current magazine!

If you wish , you can still sponsor the Minister, details can be found here.

All funds raised through the Kiltwalk are boosted by a contribution of a further 40% from The Hunter Foundation.

Classes for New Communicants

The Minister will be holding classes for those who wish to explore their faith and potential membership of the church, and these classes will run over three Sundays in late October/early-mid November, from around 12.15 to 1.15pm. The remaing dates are:

Sunday 27th October,
Sunday 10th November,
and Sunday 17th November.

The intention is to hold the service for admission to full membership of the church on Sunday, 24th November 2019.

Attendance at the classes do not commit you to becoming a member of the church – rather they are there to give you an idea as to the nature of the Christian faith in order that you might be able to make an informed decision for yourself.

If you are interested, or know of someone who might be interested, then please contact the Minister on 0141 942 0507

Bible Basics

The book of the Acts of the Apostles (Acts) was composed by the same author as the Gospel of Luke. If the Gospel of Luke tells the story of Jesus’ birth, life, ministry crucifixion and resurrection, then Acts tells us what happened next. It is the story of the growth of the early church and the spread of Christianity to the Gentile world through the power of the Holy Spirit.

‘Bible Basics’ is intended to be a fairly gentle and non-threatening entry into Bible Study and is aimed at those curious to find out some of the basic ideas and themes of Acts. No prior knowledge assumed and no question asked is a bad question! The Bible Studies will take place on Wednesday mornings at 10.30am at the Manse and will last around an hour. I will provide Bibles and the relevant materials.

We will meet on the following dates:-

Wednesday 13th November,
Wednesday 27th November,
and Wednesday 11th December.

If you think you might be interested then please call me on 0141 942 0507 or email the Minister or just turn up on the day!

East Dunbartonshire Action for Refugees EDAR

EDAR is an ecumenical group of mainly church members asking for tents & sleeping bags for Asylum Seekers who were in the Calais area. They were cleared away & have a very precarious life. Ron McKechnie from Rhu is taking as much as he can collect at the end of October. Donations of tents, sleeping bags or money are all welcome and can be left at New Kilpatrick Church Office or 4 Balvie Rd, Milngavie. For more information contact Peter Drummond or our Church Office.
