Parish News Round-Up From Around Scotland

Wormit and Balmerino Church in Fife is the base for the foodbank which serves the Taybridgehead area. Members of the Church are busy through out the year, collecting and sorting contributions and collating them into suitable parcels.  There is always a need, but demand increases during school holidays, and Christmas parcels are especially important. Church members responded to appeals for items such as Christmas puddings and chocolate selection boxes to add to the usual necessary goods; over 40 parcels were delivered this Christmas.

Orchardhill Parish Church, Giffnock hosted The BIG SING concert held by West of Scotland Military Wives Choir and Falkirk Junior Gaelic Choir on Sunday December 2 on behalf of Scottish Huntington’s Association. Around 200 people attended and just short of £3,000 was raised for the Association.

We plan to make this an annual event bringing peace and tranquillity to everyone at the start of December.”
