Happy New Year everyone,

I don’t know about you, but time really does seem to be moving faster than it used to. It is hard to believe that I have been in post now at Newton Mearns for over a year and what a quick year it has been. In what seems no time at all, so much has happened in the life of the church. Together we have shared the sadness of saying goodbye to some very dear friends last year and the joy of welcoming in new friends.

Over the past year we have seen new groups starting within the life of the church. The weekly Midweek Worship and the monthly Prayer Meeting, Bible Study Group, and walking group, the Mearns Mile, all offer the opportunity for growing our faith and developing our relationships with God and with one another and all of these will continue into 2019.

This year we will be starting a Men’s Group and other groups are also planned, so watch this space, the church website and Facebook page for more information. It is my hope that with all the existing groups continuing and new groups starting, no matter who you are in the church family, there will be a group or place where you will feel you belong, a place where you can develop new and maintain existing friendships, a place where you feel safe and a sense of belonging.

If you haven’t been along to any of the groups currently running in the church for a wee while, or if you haven’t been along to the church on a Sunday morning either, then I can assure you that you will be made most welcome as you are an important part of God’s family here in Newton Mearns.

If you have an idea about a group that you would be interested in but which isn’t currently meeting in the church, then please feel free to get in contact with me and we can have a chat about it.

As we journey through 2019, I hope and pray that whatever we face, we will face it together, because we are all part of the body of Christ and what affects one of us affects us all. As a community of faith, none of us should ever feel alone or isolated, so let 2019 be a year of strengthening relationships and fellowship with God and one another.

Yours in Christ
