Visit to St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church

The Society plan to visit St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church, Newlands, Glasgow on Sunday 8th October 2017. We leave Milngavie at 2.15pm with drivers collecting passengers from their homes. The church is an impressive building with many stained glass windows and mosaics. There is on street parking in Newlands Road with level access to the church from there. That afternoon at 3.30pm there is an hour long classical concert featuring RSNO Principal Flute Katherine Bryan with pianist Edward Cohen.

Our outing this year was to the Abbey Church of Dunfermline on Saturday 13th May leaving Milngavie Station at 12.30pm and returning at approximately 8pm. After the guided tour there will be some free time before we go to Dunmar House in Alloa to enjoy a two course meal with tea/coffee. Total cost is £30.

St. Paul's Church Society 50th Anniversary Celebrations, 2016

In May members of the society enjoyed a weekend of fellowship. We stayed in an excellent hotel in Mull and attended worship in Iona Abbey on the Sunday morning which was very special.

On a Saturday afternoon in October members and invited guests enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea in the large hall. Mary Hutchison, one of the founder members, cut the "Church" cake and was then given a bouquet of flowers. Alex McEwan had realised the substantial amount of £500 from making and selling his pound cards. £250 from the society's funds was added to this and Alex presented a cheque to our minister who accepted it on behalf of the Preshal Trust.

Next day at the morning service the Church Visitor Stand, our gift to the church, was dedicated with members of the committee taking part in the service.

A 50th Anniversary celebrated well!
