A unique occasion took place on Sunday September 11 when members of Netherlee Church, on the south side of Glasgow, presented to Paisley Abbey two antique Communion pewter lidded flagons (or urns) engraved ‘For the Abby Church Paisley’ and dated 1775.

The items were discovered at Netherlee at the back of a dusty shelf in a locked cupboard and no one is 100% sure how they came to be there (although several theories have been put forward). The Abbey possesses several similar pewter vessels, though none bearing the same wording or date. It has been agreed that from now on the vessels will be known as the ‘Netherlee Urns’.

Pictured: the minister of Paisley Abbey, the Reverend Alan Birss,, receiving the two pewter vessels from members of Netherlee Church congregation.


 

On Sunday September 4 Rev Liz Robertson of Bannockburn : Ladywell Church presented four Elders with Long Service Certificates: Willie Ross, Peter Ferguson and Anne Love for 30 years, and Colin McKenzie for 60 years.
