Volunteers Needed: Polmont Young Offenders Institution Tea Bar are looking for people who can spare a couple of hours to help serve teas, coffees, soft drinks and snacks to visiting family members, many of whom have long distances to travel.
New Elders and Board Members: We are becoming very short of office-bearers in both Laurieston and Redding & Westquarter Churches. If you would like to find out more about what is involved in being an elder or member of the Congregational Board, please speak to the Minister or Session Clerk; likewise if there is someone whose name you would like to suggest. There may also be people who would be happy to visit elderly and housebound members without taking on the full responsibilities of eldership: please let us know if that is the case.
New members: If you are already a member of another church and wish to transfer your membership here, this is very straightforward: just let the Minister or one of the elders know.
Freewill Offering - Have you ever noticed that there are a few people in the Church who put nothing in the Offering on a Sunday and simply pass the plate to the person sitting next to them? Don`t worry as this is because more and more members are making their offerings direct to the Redding and Westquarter Church bank account. If you would like to make your offering in this way please contact the Treasurer who will give you all the details.
