Wellington Parish Church is hosting an informal poetry evening. It starts at 7:30pm on the 7th of June.
The evening is intended to promote the work of the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF). It is appropriate, therefore, that the centrepiece will be a dramatic reading of the “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” by members of Wellington Church and others under the direction of Stephen Callaghan, the director of the archdiocese of Glasgow Arts Project.
Fair trade wine and local cheese served.
The One World Shop on Great Western Road will move out in the middle of June. They are concentrating on finding new low cost or rent free premises in the West End and in the city centre.
In the short term they are looking for help to find:
1. A rent-free storage space for our fixtures and fittings – do you have a room or storage space that could store our shelving, glass cabinets and other fittings for up to 6 months?
2. A rent free or low cost room or office in the West end – a place where we could work from, supply stalls and hold a small amount of stock for up to 6 months.
3. A low cost retail opportunity – ideally in the West End, could be within a cafe, community centre, church, university or shared premises with an existing business. They are open to all offers!
If you can offer them some ideas or help please contact Rachel on racheloneworldshopcouk.

The Green Fayre took place on March 16, and organisations both local and national set up stall to promote the environmental theme at Netherlee Church. Gillian Loney from the local newspaper The Glasgow South and Eastwood Extra wrote a lovely piece about the Green Fayre which you can access by clicking on this link.
Activities included electric car rides and playing the food-print map game to find out the carbon footprint of different foods. It was a well-attended excellent day and the church was able to share some of their enthusiasm in taking care of Creation with the local community.
