Members of Milton of Campsie Parish Church and St Paul’s Roman Catholic Church held an ecumenical Prayer Walk around the village on Palm Sunday. Around 30 people took part, walking from St Paul’s to the Parish Church via four other stations. At each station they sang a hymn, listened to a gospel read and said a prayer.


The churches of Grangemouth held an ecumenical walk of witness around Zetland Park on Palm Sunday.


On Palm Sunday, Freuchie Church and community collected Easter Eggs for the local foodbank. A large number of eggs were handed in and are shown in a display with Minister the Rev Ian Hamilton, Session Clerk Margaret Cuthbert, Babs, Margaret, Ailsa and Rhona.
