Thinking about Church?

A couple of times a year we run a discussion group where people can explore the Christian Faith and consider whether they are interested in becoming members of the Church of Scotland. It is also an opportunity for those who are members to think about what the church believes and what they believe.

Another class is starting soon, and all are welcome to come. There is no compulsion to join at the end of it – though we hope you will.

  • Dates: Sundays 26 April and 10 May Time: 7.00pm (for about 45minutes – 1 hour)
  • Venue: Riverside Church Lounge (enter by the Castle Street door, turn right and it’s the first door on the left)

If you are interested but cannot make the day/time suggested, please contact the church office.

Christian Aid Erskine Bridge Fun Day

  • Date: Saturday 25 April 2015
  • Time: Reception from 1pm, walk 2-5pm
  • Location: Erskine Bridge, Old Kilpatrick

Go along and enjoy a walk across the Erskine Bridge for another year at the Erskine Bridge Fun Day event. Take in the stunning views beneath the bridge on the Boden Boo forestry walks organised by Christian Aid.

This year will have the great addition of a 50ft inflatable assault course! Are you ready to compete against your friends and family to tackle the course and come out on top?

This is a great day for all age groups, whether you fancy challenging the assault course or just want to enjoy a leisurely walk across the River Clyde.

Prayer Diary: Week commencing 5 April 2015: Easter

* Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Hallelujah!
* If the women and the disciples who went to the empty tomb and met the Risen Jesus struggled to understand what they had experienced, maybe we have an excuse, Lord, help us to try to get our heads around what happened that day
* Thank you for the new hope that Easter gives us: the hope that cruelty, indifference, abuse and hatred will not have the last word; the hope that it is worth investing time, effort and suffering into seeking healing and wholeness for the world; the hope that life does not end with death
* Encountering the risen Jesus transformed the lives of those who met him. Help us to open our hearts and lives that we may be transformed
* Help your whole church to live out the hope, the message of Easter

Schools against Sectarianism

Pupils at six Dumbarton primary schools all took part in a quiz organised by Dumbarton Churches Together to help them learn more about sectarianism and its effects on people. The ecumenical event was attended by Reverend Ian Johnson, of Dumbarton: Riverside linked with The West Kirk, Reverend Liz O’Ryan from St Augustine’s Scottish Episcopal Church and Canon Gerry Conroy, of St Patrick’s.
