News in brief from around the lo­cal churches

A Men’s Shed is start­ing up in Ruther­glen Bap­tist Com­mu­nity Church.

The Men’s Shed As­so­ci­a­tion started in Aus­tralia a few years ago and has spread across the world.

The ob­jec­tive of Men’s Shed is to give men who have time on their hands a place to meet.

Most men have a life­time of skills be­hind them and they want to pass on th­ese skills and show oth­ers what can be achieved.

Don’t worry, though, if you have no prac­ti­cal skills.

A work­shop area will be built at one end of the hall with a re­lax­ation area avail­able to sit and chat and put the world to rights over a cup of tea.

Be­ing part of a Men’s Shed is good for your health and well-be­ing.
