Community Choir

IN HARMONY

The Community Choir meets on Tuesday evenings from 7-9pm. Come along, sing, learn some music and enjoy the company of others who enjoy singing together as part of a choir.

We do have a waiting list, but will always make space for men and anyone under 25.

Glasgow Care Foundation
Church Charity

First of all can I thank Giffnock South for making the Glasgow Care Foundation the charity that it will be supporting this year?

Most of you will know of the charity from the toys you so generously give every year at Christmas, which we distribute to many families in Glasgow. However, you may not know that the bulk of what we do is to support many needy families and individuals with practical help that it is not available elsewhere. Things like washing machines, cookers, bedding, floor coverings and fridges that make a difference in helping to keep families together and to support independent living.

We receive requests for help through a number of agencies (not directly from individuals) and our Welfare Officer visits homes and assesses their needs. We also support a number of Glasgow based community projects where funding can't be found elsewhere.

Although we have been in existence for over 140 years, we are still a small charity that relies solely on donations, legacies and trust funds and we do not have the resource (or the inclination) to use professional fund raisers. It is, therefore, most welcome and greatly appreciated to have the support of Giffnock South, particularly as we seek to reach out to meet what is an increasing need and work collaboratively with other charities and agencies.

Our aim is to raise as much money as possible.

Partnerships

Giffnock South is proud to have developed strong relations with other churches locally and internationally.

Our partnership with Pollokshaws Parish Church , in Glasgow’s south side, has enhanced the spiritual and social life of the respective congregations and has been a source of genuine friendship and fellowship between the two churches. Click here for more info on Pollokshaws...»

Our partnership with the Parish Church in Ekwendeni has led to group visits to and from Malawi over the past few years and has led to a twinning being established between Williamwood High School in East Renfrewshire and the local Secondary School in Ekwendeni.

Flowers

The flowers which are an admired feature of Giffnock South worship are provided by members, often to remember a special anniversary. Donors can place their flowers directly into vases, arrange them themselves, or if preferred, a member of the flower committee will be happy to arrange them.

After the morning service, voluteers deliver the flowers to member of our congregation who are in need of special support. This is an avenue of service which is much appreciated and we would be pleased to have more helpers.

If you would like to provide flowers for the church, or to help distribute them, please contact the Church Office  Tel: 638 2599, or Mora Kerr, Flower Convener Tel: 638 2541.
