It is with sadness that we hear that Tina Kemp is retiring this summer. Tina has been a great minister to our congregation and we will miss her enormously. We wish her a happy and healthy retirement and hope she will still visit us at Rhu & Shandon Parish Church.

On Tuesday we said a fond farewell to our dear friend, Martin Rich, who is moving to Bath to be closer to family. Martin served as session clerk and was also church officer and a member of the choir. At a socially distanced – and very wet and windy – gathering in the church grounds, Rev David T Young thanked Martin for his contribution not just to the church but to the community and presented him with gifts on behalf of the congregation. Every blessing, Martin, in this new chapter of your life. We will miss you.

Prayer Gates – Is there someone or something you want to pray for in these uncertain times?
If so please take a ribbon and tie it to our church gates and take  a moment of prayer or silent contemplation.
