Ready for a new session
With the school holidays over, all the King’s Park Church organisations are preparing for a new session.
The junior section of the Boys’ Brigade invites all boys in Primaries 4 to 6 to enrol on Wednesday, September 2, between 7.15pm and 8.15pm prior to activities commencing on Wednesday September 9 at 7.15pm.
Another activity for children aged between five and nine is the youth club which takes place in the Lesser Hall on Tuesday afternoons from 3.30pm to 4.45pm.
For adults, there are various activities throughout the week; the Craft Cafe resumes at 1.30 – 3.30 pm on Mondays while in the evening, God-Tok meets between 7 and 9 pm in the St Mungo Hall on Tuesdays, also in St Mungo Hall.
All are welcome to the coffee mornings held from 10 am to noon, with the proceeds going to different charities each week.
Alternatively, those wishing to focus on their spiritual welfare can go to the lounge where the prayer group meets from 11 to 11.30 am.
On Thursday morning, anyone wishing to improve their knowledge of IT can attend the IT Computer Class which meets in St Mungo Hall from 10am to noon.
Men in King’s Park are invited to come along to the Gents’ Carpet Bowls Club which is on three afternoons a week during the winter months.
Over the summer, the children attending the Glasgow Life Youth Club have been enjoying playing ‘bendy bowls’ and the club wishes to thank Dennis Keane and John McCabe who turned up to help.
Also over the summer, some of the men took advantage of the carpets being already set up and played on Tuesdays, welcoming a new member, John Sinclair.
Anyone interested in joining should not be concerned about being unfamiliar with the rules as they will be assured of a discreet introduction to the format and the rules.
The new season resumes on September 1 at 1pm for 1.30pm. The membership fee is £20 with a levy of 50p per day for play. A Rutherglen teenager appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court facing several charges.
James Gordon Smith, of Baronald Street, appeared at court on Tuesday, August 25.
On Drumlaw Road in Rutherglen on July 8, 2015, Smith is accused of behaving in a threatening and abusive manner and approached two 11-year-old children and making threatening remarks to one of them.
The 18-year-old is also accused of assaulting one of the children by pushing them on the body.
Smith maintained a plea of not guilty and is due to reappear on September 2. Bail was continued.
