Harvest Festival 6 October 2019
Because Sunday 6th October was our Harvest Festival our beautiful church was decorated with flowers and produce.
The theme of our Harvest Festival worship was to focus on sparking interest in our Malawi Project, in partnership with the Helensburgh and District Rotary Club. This project is providing practical and targeted support to Christian fellowships in Malawi over the coming months. Our Sunday collections raised over £2000 for this project.
Our thanks go to the members of the congregation who have worked hard to achieve such two such tremendous results over the weekend.
