Stamp Appeal

May 17, 2022

In Lebanon, in response to the financial collapse in the country, pastors in Syria and Lebanon initiated, in 2021, a scheme where they gave half of their salary to establish a relief programme to support the neediest families around their congregations.

Church of Scotland partners, The National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon (NESSL) is struggling to pay salaries for pastors which range between £100 to £150 per month. Some pastors have left their vocation to take other jobs. Salaries have been supported by fee paying schools, but many families are now finding it hard to pay school fees. Despite the hardships experienced, pastors are reaching out to the needy in their congregations in a sacrificial way. This year the Stamp Project proceeds aim to raise enough funds to support a pastor for a full year’s salary.

Please keep your stamps and place them in the box in the Church foyer.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored me and two colleagues to walk the Kiltwalk last Sunday for CrossReach. We raised the amazing sum of £1298 and this is added to by a 50% top up from the Tom Hunter Foundation. 

It was a well organised event and the weather was perfect, and I am pleased to say that we completed the 23 miles. Thank you again for your generosity.

Kiltwalk 2022 to fundraise for CrossReach

April 18, 2022

In the recent  Church newsletter, there was an article giving some information about a charitable organisation that our Sheila Traynor works for called CrossReach which is part of the Church of Scotland. 

CrossReach is one of the leading social care providers in Scotland, offering care and support to thousands of people each year of all faiths and none. 

On Sunday 24th April Sheila will be walking 22.7 miles from Glasgow Green to Balloch with a few colleagues to raise some funds for CrossReach. 

Sheila says, any donations will be gratefully received and this is the link to the JustGiving page

Rapunzel Christmas Panto Postponed!

December 17, 2021

To everyone who have bought tickets to attend our first show of Rapunzel this evening at Torrance Parish Church,

We are so sad to have to tell you that the difficult decision has been made to cancel the show as planned. We had been working so hard on this and were very excited to share it with you. This is not a message we wanted to have to share. This decision was made very last minute to keep the community of Torrance safe and we appreciate your understanding through these difficult times. 

As you know, this event was to raise funds for the East Dunbartonshire Food Bank and so we really appreciate your support and hope you will be happy to keep your tickets while we make plans to perform for you all at a future date to be confirmed as soon as it is safe to do so.

We’re so sorry for any inconvenience caused and thank you all again for your support. 

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and we can’t wait to perform for you all soon. 

We are meeting with the cast and crew tonight and hope to create something to share with you all as soon as possible to hopefully make you smile and keep you going until we can share our version of Rapunzel with you. 

Thank you, Sean Reilly, on behalf of us all at the TPC Panto
