We thoroughly enjoyed participating at Heart and Soul 2015 in Princes Street Gardens Edinburgh two weeks ago. We met lots of people from churches all round Scotland and telling them about the work we do at St John’s.
Here is a picture of our team hard at work.
Our Minister, Joanne Hood was also there representing the Church of Scotland as part of the Heart and Soul Swing Band.

Well done to all those who helped organise the Hamilton, St John’s tent which was on display at the Church of Scotland’s Heart and Soul celebration in Princes’s Street Gardens Edinburgh last Sunday.
It it was nice to see St John’s playing it’s part in the work of the Church as well as sharing with others our experience what we do here in Hamilton as well as taking the opportunity to talk to them and to learn from them.
A big thank you to all of those who collected and counted money for Christian Aid last week. A further thanks to those who took part in our outdoor tent providing music entertainment to the those in the town centre. A particular thanks go to the pupils from Hamilton Grammar School who played their part and helped show that “community” is alive and kicking in Hamilton.
