Eleanor’s Last Sunday as Minister at Riverside

We’re not saying goodbye – Eleanor will continue to be with us for the time being as our Interim Moderator, but will shortly take up the post of Interim Minister at St Nicholas Cardonald in Glasgow.

During the service on Sunday 31 March Margaret Livingstone, Session Clerk, on behalf of the whole congregation, thanked Eleanor for all her efforts over the last few years, acknowledging the stronger and more positive position Riverside is now in and sense of enthusiastic optimism amongst us all for the future.

Tea/coffee and nibbles were served in the main hall after the service.

Messy Church

Messy Church is about trying to do church in a different way; to reach out to people of all ages who maybe wouldn’t normally come to church and also people who do come to church.

At Messy Church events the community is invited to try a range of activities including, arts, crafts, music and drama before enjoying food with other participants
