Weekly Intimations

Intimations -26th September 2021

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and weekly intimations page.  Sunday worship is now available online and in print.  If you are housebound and would like the printed service, or a CD recording of the service then please contact the office.

Next Sunday will be our Harvest Thanksgiving Service.  This will be an all age service.  Please see the intimation below  for donation ideas.

District Elders can uplift their Communion Invitation Cards this Sunday from the front vestibule windows.

There is tea and coffee available after this service in the Memorial Hall.  Please wait at the Memorial Hall door to be seated, and sign the contact list.   As it is harder to hold fundraising coffee mornings just now, the donations taken at the Tea and Coffee will be donated to  Macmillan Cancer Support. 

Harvest Thanksgiving 2021  –  Sunday 3rd October

This year we will be supporting the Lodging House Mission with our Harvest Thanksgiving donations.

The Lodging House Mission has been helping the people of Glasgow for over 100 years and like many has had a difficult time through Covid.  Yet the staff have continued to help thousands of people who have been struggling with homelessness, addictions, and unemployment.  We are glad to regularly support them by helping on the rota for their Saturday café, and through our Harvest donations.

There is a handy list of suggested items below if you wish to donate items of food.  These can be brought to church next Sunday and placed on the chancel steps before the service begins.

If instead you would prefer to donate financially to support the work of Lodging House Mission then there will be donation bowls

available on the way into church next Sunday.  Cheques should be made payable to Jordanhill Parish Church.  You can also donate

directly to the Lodging House Mission by using the paying facility on their website   https://www.lhm-glasgow.org.uk       LHM is a Scottish Registered Charity NO. SC017283
