Welcome to our Church.  If you wish to know more about our activities, or any other matter, one of the Duty Team at the door will be delighted to help.

Our Prayer Group meets each Sunday morning at 10.30 in the Carswell Centre. Please come either regularly or occasionally.

Church Builders  -  meets on Sundays for songs, stories, games and more and everyone from Nursery age to P6 is welcome.   We start in church and then move up to the Carswell Centre for our own time together.   For more information, please contact Julie Robertson:  juliecrob@gmail.com.

EPYC  -  our Youth Group  - meets on Sunday evenings from 7pm to 8.45pm in the Carswell Centre and is designed for all those in P7 and high school age. For more information, please contact James Edgar:  jamesedgarepc@gmail.com

Our Midweek Service will resuming in the New Year on Wednesdays at 11am in the Carswell Centre.

On the third Sunday of the month our Early Service is at 9.30am in Church, and Kairos is at 11am in the Carswell Centre.

Every week EPYC finishes with some hot chocolate and biscuits and the leaders believe making the hot chocolate would provide a great opportunity for Church members to get involved in the life of EPYC.  Would you be willing to come and see what we do and then make the hot chocolate for our young people? Please contact James Edgar:  jamesedgarepc@gmail.com for more information.

We can raise money for the Youth Work Fund via easyfundraising.org.uk. This is money we receive when our members shop online and could be a valuable additional source of income. To do so you register via the Easyfundraising website and go onto shop as you would normally. If you need assistance as regards the process please speak to Tom Mann or Debbie Blair.

The flower rota for 2020 is in the final stage of preparation. We are very fortunate that so many people donate flowers and that we have so many talented arrangers. There are a couple of Sundays next year without donors 31 May and 7 June.  If anyone would like to donate flowers for these dates then could they contact Kay Brown 0141-644-5975.  Also if anyone like to arrange on any Sunday then they also should contact Kay.

The Guild - this Wednesday evening is a Christmas Celebration and finishes our 2019 session.  Our first meeting in 2020 will be on Wednesday 8th January when our evening's entertainment will be the Piggery Brae Folk Band  -  a rousing start to the New Year.

Nativity Walk donations  - Donations of wine and mince pies can be given to Doug and Sheila Lamont either at church or at their home. Please email doug@lamontassociates.co.uk to make arrangements.

Our Service of Nine Lessons and Carols is on Sunday evening, 22nd December at 6.30pm in the Church  -  to which all are welcome.  The Pastoral Care Group are offering lifts to and from the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols. Those needing transportation should please contact Stuart MacGill (phone 0141 638 3537 or email smeag2002@madasafish.com).  (It would be much appreciated if some of the people attending Nine Lessons and Carols could please bring a torch or a phone with torchlight facility, just in the very unlikely circumstance of a power cut!)

Christmas Day at “The Club”.  As many of you already know, Eaglesham Bowling Club is providing a traditional Christmas lunch and festive cheer to those who would otherwise be alone on Christmas Day.   There is no charge for this, but any donations on the day will be donated to local good causes.  If anyone is interested please book your place by contacting Anne Carr (07971-445759) or email Anne at eagleshambowlingclub@gmail.com.  Thanks.

Prayer

“Where meek souls will receive him, still the dear Christ enters in.”  Phillips Brooks

Lord, we thank you that you come to us, apparently weak and vulnerable, yet able to carry the world’s problems.  Help us to have open hearts to hear the angels’ message above life's pressures; and may your peace overcome where there is conflict.  In Jesus’ name, amen.
