Summer notice

We hope everyone who is having time off during the summer period has a wonderful, relaxing and refreshing time. As it tends to be quiet over July and August there will not be any mid week services in St James the Less but our Sunday 9am and 10.30am services continue as usual. If you are visiting the area we would love to have you join us for worship, if you live locally you are always welcome.
P.S. More photos of the pantomime will follow on eventually when we get them sorted out!

Car wash and a Pantomime!

At St James the Less two great events took place this month which raised money for two very different charities.

The Youth Group did a car wash on a Sunday morning and raised £200 for ‘Water Aid’.  Well done to everyone who worked very hard for over two hours and thank you to everyone who contributed so generously.

The pantomime ‘Snow White’ was a resounding success after so many doubts about us ever pulling it off.  By the end of the night once expenses were accounted for £700 was raised for Ceartas East Dunbartonshire.  We will add an album of photos of the performance when we have a good represention of the pantomime charcters but for now one as a taster.P1020733 (2)

Think, Pray, Vote: EU Referendum resources for churches

The Church in Society Committee of the Scottish Episcopal Church commends the resources Think, Pray, Vote produced by the Joint Public Issues Team (Baptist Church, Church of Scotland, Methodist Church, United Reformed Church) with the support of the Scottish Churches’ Parliamentary Office (SCPO). Think, Pray, Vote has been prepared to enable Christians to reflect thoughtfully and prayerfully on the issues involved and can be used for conversations with groups or for personal reflection.

It explores issues that surround the referendum, such as sovereignty, the single market, freedom of movement and the environment. It provides information, opportunity for theological reflection and different perspectives from Christians on how they may vote and is available from the JPIT website:  or to download from the SCPO website at

Recent meeting

There were 26 folk stayed for the meeting after worship on Sunday 17th April. There was a great buzz from the four discussion groups with lots of contributions from everyone present. The comments will feed in to the next vestry meeting as we aim to finalise our Year 3 Mission Action Plan in the near future. Ideas will continue to emerge from the meeting as seeds sown bear fruit in the longer term.
