Shoebox Appeal Report

On Sunday 32st October 44 shoe boxes for the Blytheswood Christmas Appeal were dedicated during the morning Service by Revd John Stevenson. The boxes were gifted by members of the Guild and Congregation.

These boxes are sent with our love and prayers to less fortunate men women and children in circumstances we can only imagine. Thanks to all who made the appeal such a success.

Harvest Lunch

We held a Harvest Lunch on Saturday 19th October in Hamilton Hall, Dalserf.
This was attended by 64 people. The excellent food was supplied, prepared and served by a team of ladies and gentlemen from the Church.


The amount raised was £1000. This will be shared by Kilbride Hospice and Rachel House.
We send this money to them with our thoughts and prayers for all within these hospices and those caring for them.

Many thanks to all who contributed in raising this great amount of money.
