Tins of Fruit
Once a month Hillhouse Parish Church joins with Blantyre Old Parish, Livingstone Memorial, St. Andrews Parish & Trinity Parish Church in a service of praise. This Sanctus Service is an upbeat, uplifting and joyous service and involves a lot of singing. Each service follows a theme and each church takes a turn as host. If you are interested in joining us and our fellow churches in these services you can find all the details for the coming months here.
Jude’s Marathon Tales

I was running to raise money to help my friend Lucy access medical treatment for her MS that isn’t available in the UK and I was ready to do whatever it took to help her get there! So what did I decide to do? I thought I’d run a marathon the year I turned 40!! Read more…
To find out more MS and its effects visit the MS Society website where you can also add a donation.
