News in brief from around the local churches
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.
Cambuslang Parish Church will also be holding a mission conference on Saturday September 12 at the Kirkhill Building.
This will be a day of discussion on mission in the communities and sharing what God is doing in the communities already.
Lunch and workshops are included.
