Attention all aspiring thespians! Easter time play, ‘The Eternal Trial’.
This is a brand new two act play addressing the events around Easter from a non-traditional aspect. It revolves around the timeless trial of the gardener from Gethsemane who stands accused of body snatching the corpse of Jesus of Nazareth. This promises to be an exciting, challenging and rewarding venture with the opportunity to extend our ecumenical ethos and also lend itself to potential fund raising for selected charities.
It is intended to first present this play as an ABC Local Production, therefore a team of volunteer players is needed, with either amateur, professional or with no experience at all, along with stage and costume managers from our Bearsden Churches, so that this ecumenical venture can be staged successfully.
If interested please contact Ian Cooper of Westerton Parish Church on 01419420942 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org

BMS – Stamps Support Mission
It’s hard to believe but used stamps means money for BMS. Last year the amount raised by the organisation was enough to support a mission worker in Thailand for a year! Please pass your used stamps (trimmed but leaving a border around each stamp) to Moira Ritchie who will send them off to BMS.
Please pick up your copy of the November issue of the Steadfast Global news letter from the table.
