“To be a Sanctuary of Hope and Love in our Community”
Harvest: Sunday 20th September
Due to current restrictions placed on us by the Covid-19 Pandemic, our Harvest Appeal 2020 looks a little different. This year, the Lodging House Mission has asked us to make a financial donation which would allow them to continue feeding the hungry through Autumn and Winter in compliance with changing Covid-19 restrictions. You can leave food donations on the top step at the front door of the church between 10.30 and 12 noon on Frinday 18th September, or send cheques payable to lodging house mission to the church. Thank you.
We are now able to meet together again. The church is open for worship on Wednesdays at 10.30 am and on Sundays at 11.00 am. What to expect?
For Sunday morning worship, we ask that you book your place by calling or emailing Wilma Park on 0141 230 5139 or on the Thursday or Friday prior. You will be asked for your name and phone number for Track and Trace. 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.
There is no need to book for Wednesday services, but you will be asked to provide your name and telephone number at the door for Track and Trace.
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.

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.
