If you would like to become a member of the welcoming team to greet Sunday worshipers please speak to Michael Docherty - Session Clerk.

If you would like to set up a standing order with your bank instead of using FWO envelopes each week the information required is as follows:

Hospital Tea Bar
Here are the dates for the weeks which Bonhill Church will run the hospital tea bar in 2020. Weeks commencing:
Many thanks to all who helped at the tea bar in 2019. We are always pleased to add to our list of volunteers so if you feel you could give a morning or afternoon four or five times a year please contact Sheila McKinlay on 752904. The tea bar raised 10,000 pounds over the last year which is distributed around the various departments for equipment which they would not have otherwise making it all very worthwhile.
The 2020 Flower Calendar is up in the vestibule for those who would like to provide the flowers on a Sunday that is special to them. You can either put the flowers in place yourself or one of the flower team will do it for you. If you would like more information please speak to Jessie MacDonald or Sheila McKinlay.
