 22.3.20  Easter at the Kirk 

The busy programme of meaningful events which was planned for the Easter period at the Kirk is detailed in the Gryffe Advertizer for the month of April. Unfortunately this went to the printers before the suspension of Services etc. during these difficult times. The information contained in the Kirk Record will be accurate & please continue to refer to this website & Facebook for further developments.                                                                                                                              

 19.3.20  Foodbank 

Support of the local Foodbank is ever more critical during the current crisis. The opportunity to donate at the Kirk, of course, is no longer available following the temporary suspension of Services.

 

Therefore the Mission Team are introducing alternative arrangements at the West Halls. These will commence from Tuesday 24 March & continue every Tuesday. Donations may be made between 10 am & 12 noon & between 7 pm & 8 pm. Entry will be through the street facing front door, with crates placed between the outer & inner doors. Someone will be in attendance in the adjoining office, but face to face contact will be avoided.

 

The Foodbank is currently experiencing serious shortages. In particular, they are running short of diluting juice, tinned potatoes, tinned tomatoes, tinned meat & fish, jam & soap. They are also running with fewer volunteers & are closing the Abercorn Street unit on Friday 20 March. Our donations will be taken to the main warehouse at Westway Park, Porterfield Road, Renfrew PA4 8DJ, which will continue to support distributions at Paisley, Johnstone & Renfrew.

 

We have enough volunteers to man the donations’ station & to deliver to Renfrew for these Tuesday sessions & will see how effective these are, before considering adding more sessions. Please support the Foodbank during these very difficult times.

 18.2.20  Lent Challenge 

Our Lent challenge this year is to not give up but ‘take up’ the 40 for 40 challenge. So each Church family, for 40 days of Lent starting Wednesday 26 February for 40 days, spends 40p on food to support our local foodbank. Bring the food items along to Church on a Sunday and we’ll get them delivered.

Let’s take up the challenge and make a difference this Lent.

 15.2.20  Prayer Tree
