St John’s-Renfield volunteer gardening team get together for a few hours every Thursday from March to November to maintain the extensive church grounds. A good time is had by all and the high point is tea break time.

Book Group

The church book group meets on the last Monday evening of the month when women of all ages who are interested in books get together to discuss the latest “read”.

A book is chosen a month in advance, and discussed at the next meeting; anyone can recommend books. Past choices include “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett, “The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox” by Maggie O’Farrell and Janice Galloway’s “This Is Not About Me”.

There is no pressure to speak, nor to be erudite! The pleasure is in the sharing, the laughter, and the fellowship as much as the discussion and you don’t need to be involved in the church to join.

Craft Group

The craft group meets on a Tuesday evening between 7 and 8.30pm every week. So far the group has only women coming along but men would be welcome too!

We knit, sew, make cards, etc whilst chatting and from time to time have a guest speaker from a particular craft area.

This is a good opportunity to meet new friends and have fellowship with people of all ages from the area. New members would be made very welcome.

Walking Group

The St. John’s-Renfield Walking Group meets approximately once per month throughout the year, on a Saturday at 10am.

Walks are typically around 4 miles in length, and aim to cater for all ages and abilities of walker. We travel to destinations around Central Scotland, and try to take in a variety of locations and landscapes, both rural and urban. Recent destinations have included Lochan Spling by Aberfoyle, Maidens and Culzean on the Ayrshire coast, and Calderglen Country Park near East Kilbride. A coffee and cake stop at the end of the walk is compulsory!

The group provides an opportunity to enjoy a leisurely walk in good company, and a chance to savour our beautiful and varied Scottish landscapes. New members are always welcome, and you don’t have to be involved with the church to join us.
