It is great to see so many children attending Junior Church. Numbers are increasing, as is the age range. It would be extremely helpful if we could have more people on our volunteer rota. If you feel you can help out please speak to Ros, Shona or Elizabeth Dunn..
We need more of our organisations to provide up-to-date information.
Not just times and dates but also pictures and news. The more information we can share the greater the possibility of attracting new faces. Please send information and photos to kilbarchankirk@gmail.com .
Many thanks to the organisations who regularly keep us supplied with information.
Items that Renfrewshire Foodbank are short of at the moment are: tinned potatoes, tinned tomatoes, pasta sauces, jam,  juice,  sugar, biscuits, snacks.
Everyone's continuing support is greatly appreciated.
If you would like to be added to the list
of members who do scripture readings on a Sunday please give your name to Myra Grant.
