“To be a Sanctuary of Hope and Love in our Community”
In East Renfrewshire, we are in Level 4 of the lockdown restrictions from Friday 20th November. The church will remain open for worship, however the number attending will be reduced to 20 people. We will have a service at 10.30 am on Wednesday and two services on Sunday at 10.30 am and 11.30 am (each lasting 30 minutes). What to expect?
For Wednesday morning worship, we ask that you book your place by calling or emailing Avril Holland on 0141 316 2322 or on Monday.
For Sunday morning worship, we ask that you book your place by calling or emailing Wilma Park on 0141 230 5139 or on Thursday or Friday.
You will be asked for your name and phone number for Track and Trace on booking your place. On arriving at church, please wear a face covering and observe the strict 2 m distancing. Please enter through the main door to the sanctuary, sanitising your hands on entry. There is a one way system in place within the Sanctuary.
We understand that not everybody feels able or comfortable to join in 'live' worship at the moment, therefore, we will continue to publish our podcast HERE. Keep up to date with what's going on HERE.

Our Church Magazine
Giffnock South Parish Church has been very successfully twinned with Pollokshaws Parish Church for many years. The twinning with Pollokshaws was a natural choice as the minister at that time was Rev. Margaret Whyte who had been an assistant at Giffnock South while training for the ministry.
Kwenderana means ‘walking together’ in the language of northern Malawi and our symbol combines the flags of Malawi and Scotland. The Partnership reflects a covenanted twinning with the parish church in Ekwendeni, which was built in the Scottish style around 1890, reflecting a relationship with Malawi that is continuous from the time of David Livingstone.
