Little ChristmasToday we once more celebrate little Christmas – feast of St Nicholas – by giving to those who have less.  Once again, we invite you donate warm clothing for our Glasgow Homeless i.e. socks, hats, scarves and gloves. A sculpture depicting Jesus as a homeless man sleeping on a bench has been installed in Glasgow City Centre. It has been placed at Nelson Mandela Place near Glasgow’s St George’s Tron Church. It is hoped the sculpture will help raise awareness of homelessness.


World Day of the Poor -The Justice and Group would like to thank everyone for their very generous donations to the local Food bank. A Thank You card from the Parkhead Hub is posted at the back of the church.  Today will be the last day for this collection.

Christmas Greeting Tree -Please consider using the Justice and Peace Christmas Greeting Tree to send Christmas greetings to your fellow parishioners. As well as reducing your carbon footprint, thereby helping our sister, Mother Earth, you can also save yourself time and money. Any donations you wish to leave will go to The Wayside Club for the homeless.


ACAT Christmas Greetings -Why not join us in the tearoom today and take part in the ACAT (Action of Christians against Torture) Christian Greetings Campaign. Cards and messages of support can bring hope to those suffering torture, imprisonment or persecution because of their faith or their work as Human Rights Defenders.

St Nicholas Care Fund Boxes – Are available at the back of the church, please take a box, fill it with your loose change and return it at the end of Advent.
