David McLellan, an elder at Hamilton Bardrainney Church, Port Glasgow, designed an intricate stained-glass panel for the church that will allow the congregation to commemorate the hundreds of local people who passed away or suffered during the Covid-19 pandemic. Port Glasgow is in Inverclyde, which at one stage was described as ‘the Covid-19 capital of Scotland’, and many members of the church family have lost family and friends.


Larbert East Church said goodbye, after nearly 26 years, to the Rev Melville and Mrs Irene Crosthwaite with music from the choir and young church, and a collection of carefully chosen gifts: a bee house for their new garden, a clock featuring one of the church’s stained-glass windows, a quilt showing the organisations of the church, stitched  by the Banner Group over two years, and books of memories from the young church and wider congregation. In addition, a generous cheque from members was handed over by Kelvin Cairns, who had chaired the vacancy committee which brought Melville to Larbert East in 1995.


Looking ahead to the Church of Scotland’s National Giving Day, the Malone/Gibb family organised a sponsored cycle around Strathclyde Park, near Motherwell, in aid of Bellshill Central Church. Mum and Dad, Sharon and Grant Malone and their children Bella and Samuel, were waved off at the start line and welcomed at the finish line by proud grandparents Mr and Mrs Ian Gibb and there were medals for the completed loop of the park.
