Holiday Club 2022!

May 3, 2022

The Summer Mission Team plan to hold a holiday club this year from 8 – 12 August, 10 – 12pm, and if you would like to join the team and be involved within the groups there are a few roles available. 

We are also looking for volunteers to prepare juice and biscuits for the children and to cover light lunches for the team, either for the full week, or for 1 or 2 days. 

On the first day of holiday club, we have ‘Registration Day’ from 9.30am and require folk to cover the signing-in desks to check that the forms have been completed and to point the children in the direction of the Trainees who will then take them to their assigned groups. If you would like to volunteer contact the office – office@tpc.org.uk Thank you!

Proposed Twinning with St Phillip’s in Hyderabad Pakistan

October 6, 2021

This congregation offered to twin with St Phillip’s pre-Covid.  The offer of twinning has not progressed due to circumstances including the illness of the senior Pastor Rev Dr Daniel Fiaz leaving his junior, Rev Asghar Malik to support the congregation.  Daniel has recently returned to work full-time.  The congregation is active on Facebook and as a way of building links with them and supporting them, TPC Wider Church Group have suggested that our members follow “ St Phillip’s Church Hyderabad and Rev Dr Daniel Fiaz“  and make comment or like their posts where appropriate.  Bill Gray

Prayer Ministry

March 5, 2021

Unfortunately, due to current Covid restrictions the prayer ministry team will not be available at the church until these restrictions ease. We will keep you updated on this. However, we are still very active and calls can be made to any of the team on the list of prayer contacts throughout the week should you have a concern for prayer for yourself or others and the team will hold these in prayer – (list available from office@tpc.org.uk). We are very aware of the many different challenges and struggles folk are experiencing at present and the difficulties another lockdown brings. No matter what we face let us share one another’s burdens together in the love and strength of Jesus.  

We would also encourage you to keep an eye on the church noticeboard “Care and Prayer” topic as we encourage folk to join us in prayer for our community.   Please join us in supporting this and tie a ribbon on to the railing as a reminder to all of God’s loving care and faithfulness.

Fish and Chips

March 5, 2021

Following on from our Fish and Chips outreach over the winter when we got to know some lovely people in the village, many would really appreciate continuing to receive a friendly phone call and perhaps, in safer times, a home visit.   These simple phone calls mean so much when you live alone and prove such a blessing both to the person receiving the call and to the one offering that hand of friendship. The Pastoral Team are excited about what God has been doing and look forward to building up these friendships in Jesus’ name.   We would value your support and prayers and if you feel prompted to help please speak to Margaret Neil, Dorothy Beaton or myself.  Our numbers are detailed below. Many thanks.

Margaret Neil 07554 328739;  Dorothy Beaton 07580 463684;  Marion Murray 07910 836828 

Fish ‘n Chips in February

February 7, 2021

We are in the final month of our fish and chip deliveries and while the weather has been wild this week a little lightness is creeping in to the evening sky, Spring is on its way.

We continue to be amazed by the joy a simple fish supper brings and by your generosity in supporting this wee outreach activity. God has done wonderful things with your donations of a wee bit of fish and a couple of tatties.

A big thank you too to our deliverers, they turn out in all weathers and hurry hot suppers right across our village. A superb team.

We have enough money now to see us to the end of the month so don’t need any more donations but if you have been blessed by giving the gift of food, the food banks in Springburn and Kirkintilloch still need support.

Thanks again to all, we’ll let you know our grand total of suppers delivered at the end of the month.

Befriending and Pastoral Care

January 12, 2021

We are encouraged to look out for one another, and our neighbours, at this difficult time. The support of the visiting friends and pastoral teams remains very much available (by telephone); anyone in the community who would benefit practical help (e.g., with shopping), a friendly phone call, or is finding things difficult can call or be referred to Dorothy Beaton or Marion Murray on 07788 797238 in the first instance.
