Broom Church in Newton Mearns, Glasgow, joined with various local community groups to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee by hosting a Showtime Concert and Fair. The sunny weather was an added bonus as stallholders set up outside amidst the colourful bunting, whilst performers of all ages entertained everyone in the hall. There was something for everyone to enjoy, including races for the children, hot dogs, burgers and ice cream and a special tree was planted.


Kinning Park Parish Church in Glasgow celebrated the Platinum Jubilee with a lunch on the Saturday attended by around 50 people including members of the congregation, friends from other local churches and the local community.


A sad occasion at Twechar Parish Church, Dunbartonshire, was given a joyful note as two elders and the treasurer received long service certificates at the final service in the church.

Donald Smith was recognised for 50 years’ service as treasurer, John Gray for 40 years as elder and Gena Whyte for 30 years, also as elder. They are pictured with Gordon McInally, locum minister at Twechar for nine years, organist Heather MacDonald who had served the congregation for many years and who was presented with a bouquet of flowers, and Peter White a former interim moderator who celebrated communion at the final service.


Two elders at Colinton Parish Church, Edinburgh have been presented with long service certificates. Marion Pearce and Marion Thomson have both served for 32 years.
