 6.11.19  Wee Sleep Out 

Following staff from Gryffe High School and adults from Houston & Killellan Kirk completing the Big Sleep Out last year, there was significant interest from pupils and youth groups to host our own Wee Sleep Out. So pupils from a range of year groups along with Houston Scouts, 1st Houston Boys' Brigade and Houston Kirk Youth Club along with staff, Gary Noonan, the Minister and volunteers will be participating in the Wee Sleep Out at Gryffe High School on Saturday 7 December. We will be sleeping outside, braving the elements for a night, to help those who have to do it every night.

 16.9.19  Harvest Thanksgiving 

Harvest Thanksgiving, apart from giving thanks for the harvest and food, is a big part of our Local Outreach in the Community. As a congregation and support from friends and family, we have responded so generously again this year. The photo (click on date/title box) shows the Foodbank vanload as it left the Kirk. The collectors from the Foodbank were overwhelmed by the response – as was their van! Those who run the Renfrewshire Foodbank www.renfrewshire.foodbank.org.uk continually express their gratitude for the support from our congregation.

On the homepage are photographs of the wonderful displays arranged by the artistic ladies of the congregation. Some of these demonstrate that food donations, however impressive, are only part of the output from Harvest Thanksgiving. Additionally, supported by donations, the ladies prepared a large number of posies of flowers and fruit baskets, which were delivered to the elderly and those in care homes.

On behalf of all the organisers and indeed the recipients, sincere thanks to all who supported this seasonal appeal.
