Eaglesham Parish Church will be holding the Annual Bereavement Service in the Church on Sunday 6th December at 3.00pm. This Service will be an opportunity for reflection, prayer and remembrance for anyone who has lost family or friends within the past year. It may be particularly apposite for those who have suffered loss due to the Covid Pandemic. The invitation is open to members and non-members alike. Due to Covid restrictions in the Church we would ask that you advise us of your intention to attend by leaving your name(s) and contact details with either of the names listed below, or by leaving a message on the Church phone booking system. Face masks must be worn, hand sanitiser is to be used before and after entry and social distancing rules will apply. We look forward to welcoming you to the Church.

Worship initially - and possibly for a considerable time - will not be like our usual worship, because of our need to follow the guidelines which are there to keep us all safe. However, we must remember that we will be continuing to worship God as members of his church. Details of what to expect can be found here.
For those of you who use Facebook please visit the church page regularly for additional information.
For those without access to online communications we can share worship by telephone now. If you call 01355681661 you can hear John Lloyd's sermon. Callers are charged a local call rate for this.
The Church of Scotland have a list on their website of churches that regularly livestream services or offer them as downloadable recordings. This is not a definitive list. Please bear in mind that, given the current situation, some of these services may not go ahead.
Sign up for The Church of Scotland's reminders of each day's special prayer, reflection, or video in their interactive Advent calendar.
The Lodging House Mission Christmas appeal

With the current crisis we recognise that the work of the foodbank will be increasingly important. To help with this we now have received agreement from ERC Environmental Health department to open the Carswell Centre for donations to the foodbank. The Carswell Centre will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11.00 until 12.00 to receive donations. In line with guidance and to protect all concerned, the doors of the Carswell Centre will be open so that donations can be placed inside without touching any surfaces. The donations will be taken the following week (i.e. Leaving a minimum of 72 hours untouched) to the distribution centre. We are glad to be able to support this essential work during this period of crisis.
Please remember to pray for our church, our community, our country and the world during this difficult time. Especially for those working to find solutions and those working hard to support us through this time. If you feel that you or a loved one would benefit from prayer support feel free to complete the form on our Prayer Request page
The Covid-19 pandemic has not helped the church finances. Despite the fact of furloughing employees the vast majority of our outgoings remain the same without the benefit of income from hall lets and other fund-raising activities.
If you could consider a donation to the church this would be greatly appreciated. This can easily be done through Just Giving.
An update on the church organ can be found over on our News page.
