Welcome


dsc_0038Welcome to the website of Greenock Westburn Church of Scotland

During this time when we are unable to meet together in our usual ways, we will be adding something here and on our facebook page on a daily basis…. a reflection or a prayer or a story or information or a thought or something to pass on from somewhere else.

Please continue to keep in touch with friends, family , congregation members and neighbours by phone, social media and why not send someone a card or note.

We remember now, more than ever, that we are part of a community – of families and friends, of neighbours near and far.

A reminder of the details of our Christmas gift appeal

Christmas is a time when we give gifts not only to family and friends but to others in our community and beyond.
We are pleased to say that we can continue to do that this Christmas and here are the details of two ways we can extend a little of the hope and love of Christmas to others.
Christmas Toy Appeal – as in previous years we are collecting toys for children in our community to be distributed via the Social Work Department. Joe has said that as some of the other support they usually receive , won’t be possible this year, and so gifts from Westburn Parish Church would be really appreciated. Please put your gift in a gift bag rather than wrapping it in paper. Gifts suitable for babies right through to teenagers are needed.
Jolly Boxes, Compassionate Inverclyde – this year Compassionate Inverclyde are hoping to give a small gift, a ‘Jolly Box’ to all those in nursing homes , those in hospital on Christmas Eve and those alone in our community. Small items to fit in boxes include – Christmas tree decoration, chocolate, Christmas hankies, handmade Christmas card and small toiletries.
We will have a collection point for gifts on Thursday 3rd December from 11a.m. – 1p.m. and on Sunday 6th December before and after worship.
Thanks for your kindness

Thank you

Karen
