Vacancy - Parish Minister
The congregation of Eaglesham is looking for a minister. The vacancy has arisen because our previous minister moved to another charge. But we hope that, after reading our Parish Profile, you can sense the strengths and areas of development for our Church, and what we consider to be our present and future challenges. Our office bearers and congregation are great team players who will offer excellent support, friendship and encouragement to their new Minister. Do you see yourself as part of this vision? If so, we look forward to hearing from you.
Eaglesham is an unrestricted charge. The Kirk Session of Eaglesham Parish Church has voted by a majority for departure from the Church’s practice in relation to human sexuality.
Applications, in writing with CV and the names of two referees, should be made to the Clerk to the Nominating Committee.

DNA Small Groups
The journey towards Easter starts with Lent, which begins on the 17th of February and lasts for the six weeks leading up to Easter. It’s a time to focus on Jesus and accompany him on the path which led to Jerusalem, death and to resurrection life.
One way to do this virtual pilgrimage is to join one of our small groups, known as “DNA” or “Discipleship, Nurture and Action”. Groups can’t meet physically just now, but Zoom and other online ways of connecting are the next best thing, helping to build friendships as well as our faith.
For more information about joining or starting up a group, please contact Gillian Norval.
The Foodbank is open for donations at the Carswell Centre on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11.00 until 12.00.
Please remember to pray for our church, our community, our country and the world during this difficult time. Especially for those working to find solutions and those working hard to support us through this time. If you feel that you or a loved one would benefit from prayer support feel free to complete the form on our Prayer Request page
The Covid-19 pandemic has not helped the church finances. Despite the fact of furloughing employees the vast majority of our outgoings remain the same without the benefit of income from hall lets and other fund-raising activities.
If you could consider a donation to the church this would be greatly appreciated. This can easily be done through Just Giving.
An update on the church organ can be found over on our News page.
