Groups Taking Summer Breaks
Many, but not all, of our church groups take breaks over the summer. We will update our calendar (What's On and View More Events) as soon as we learn of changes.
Guild's Summer Programme
The Summer Guild will meet once a month, from 2pm till 3pm in the Lower Hall for tea and a chat together – and some surprises. The dates are given above.
The deadline for the September issue of EKO is Sunday 19th August for hand/typewritten scripts, and Wednesday 22nd August for electronic copy.
Note: Information can be submitted for publication on the website throughout the summer (see above under the 'Noticeboard' heading.
Prayer Group Now Meets Weekly
Prayer requests can be left in the box on the shelf beside the visitors’ book, or in the box upstairs. Requests should mention first name only of person to be prayed for and reason for the prayer.
World Mission Stamp Appeal
Please keep putting your used stamps into the boxes at the Church vestibule and hall, and into the pocket on the notice board at the Glebe St Hall. See our 'News' section for more detail on beneficiaries.
As the work needed on the Manse is about to start, please note that as from 7thMay, the Minister’s address will change (details from the Church Office). Her phone number remains the same.
Consultation re Sound System for Glebe St Hall
Organisations using the Glebe St Hall will be consulted in the not too distant future on their thoughts about a sound system - whether they would benefit from having one, and if so, in what way. Their delegates will visit with the appropriate form.
Welcome to East Kilbride Old Parish Church!
Join us for worship on
Sunday Mornings from 11am – 12noon.
We hope you will feel a warmth and friendliness and that your experience of our worship together is enjoyable, meaningful and encouraging. Please also look out for activities you could be a part of during the week – there are lots of opportunities to meet with a friendly crowd! East Kilbride Old prides itself in being known as a welcoming church.
From the church of the past to the church of today…
“This website includes a section on the history of the church and its graveyard because we know may visitors are interested in this. The current building dates back to 1774 (though there has been a church on this site since pre-Reformation times).
When today’s church was built, it stood in the midst of a small village. Today it stands in the midst of a large new town with a population of around 75,000 people.
Beautiful as it is however, our church is not the building, but the people. Within that building, there is a warm church family. People of all ages meet together, all striving to reach out to the community we serve in the Village area and East Mains.
We have active organisations for children and adults, giving a wealth of opportunities for fellowship and sharing, and everyone is assured of a warm welcome.”
Rev. Anne Paton
