We would would like to thank all those who attended the linkage service and joined us in this new part of our journey.
A big thank you to a those from both churches that helped will the tea after the service.
Linkage of St. Andrew's Parish Church and Blantyre, Livingstone Memorial Church
As you will be aware the Linkage of our church with Blantyre, Livingstone Memorial Church has now been approved with the Service of Linkage taking place on Thursday 26th March 2015 at 7:00pm in St Andrew’s Church, Blantyre. Refreshments will be served after the service. All members of both churches are welcome to attend and we would be pleased to see you there.
The Interim Moderator of the linked charge will be Rev Douglas Wallace and our Locum minister will continue to be Rev Sharon Colvin. We welcome these appointments and look forward to working with them in the coming months.
Please note there are changes to the Sunday service times of both churches and these will take effect from Sunday 12th April 2015 as follows:
You will note that our service time is earlier than our existing start time and we hope this will not present any significant inconvenience. However, should this earlier time present difficulty then you will be made most welcome at Livingstone Memorial at the later time of 11:30am. The same courtesy will be extended by us to members of Livingstone Memorial, who may find the later start time problematic.
This is a very significant and exciting time in the life and work of our Church and we look forward to working towards furthering God’s plan not only for our church, but also the local community and beyond. The efforts of many will be needed to achieve our goals and if you would like to be more involved in this work in whatever way, please feel free to discuss with your Elder or indeed any member of the Kirk Session who will delighted to hear from you.
With God’s blessings,
The Kirk Session, St Andrew’s Parish Church
