The Lighthouse Kids, the Sunday School at Ardrossan Parish Church, decided to plant two flowering evergreen shrubs as their contribution to the COP26 Conference in Glasgow in November.

The two shrubs are bee, butterfly and environmentally friendly and will help, in a small way, to offset climate change.


 

New Parish Church, Port Glasgow, welcomed another four new members over the holiday period. Sam and Amy (pictured with daughter Olivia) and Mark and Laura (pictured with son Callum) brought the number of new members at the church since 2020 up to 20, with another five beginning the new communicants class this year.

Minister, the Rev William Boyle, said: “Mark and Laura have not only become new members but brought their band, the Riverside Youth Band to our church which meets in our halls every Friday and supports the church at various events in our Sanctuary. This has been such a welcome addition to our church with over 30 local youngsters coming to our building and four of our Sunday Club now going along since the band's move to our church.

“We are really encouraged to see our congregation grow especially during these uncertain times and I look forward to working with our next batch of new members. God is doing amazing things here in Port Glasgow.” (Pictures not taken in church.)
