News in brief from around the lo­cal churches

Rutherglen Reformer - - News from the Pews -

King’s Park Church re­cently held a com­mu­nity lit­ter-pick.

Twenty adults and chil­dren joined to­gether to clean up King’s Park a lit­tle.

The group met at 7pm and worked dili­gently un­til they had cov­ered the main ar­eas of rub­bish.

They came across many fast food and take out pack­ages, as well as many empty bot­tles, both glass and plas­tic, and cleared rub­bish from many gar­dens and hedges, which are a great place for the wind to blow rub­bish un­der.

Rev San­dra Boyd said:“We take a great pride in King’s Park Com­mu­nity and it was quite ther­a­peu­tic to make a dif­fer­ence in our lo­cal area so if any­one would like to join us next year your help would be greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.

“We also re­ceived toots, thumbs up and some peo­ple even stopped their cars to thank us for our ef­forts.

“We had a good evening of fel­low­ship and friend­ship and a well-earned cup of tea af­ter too.

“A huge thank-you to ev­ery­one who helped es­pe­cially Hay­den and Andy, our younger Lit­ter Pick­ers.”

Cam­bus­lang Parish Church’s com­mu­nity cafe will move to their Arnott Way build­ing.

The or­gan­is­ers in­vite the lo­cal com­mu­nity to go along and en­joy a drink and a tasty snack in warm, com­fort­able sur­round­ings.

It will no longer be held in the Kirkhill build­ing.
