RESURRECTION:

CHOIR OF ST. PETERSBURG 

Last November, St. Margaret's was delighted to host an evening of entertainment courtesy of the renowned vocal ensemble Resurrection - Voskresenije. The Choir of St. Petersburg which was made up of nine professional female and male vocalists were outstanding and those lucky enough to get tickets for the event were very impressed and entertained by their repertoire of Russian sacred and folk music.

The event was part of the choir's 2016 UK tour and we are delighted that they have are back again as part of their 2017 tour on the evening of Tuesday 21 November 2017. Anyone interested in securing a ticket for this event should e-mail MrsVBlair@gmail.com Tickets are priced at £10 per person and include light refreshments and canapes.


REMEMBERING THE DEPARTED

November is a month of rememberance. As well as marking Rememberance Sunday on 12th, when we think of all those who have died in war, we commemorate all the "Faithful departed" in our All Souls service on Wednesday 1 November and Sunday 5 November.

There is a list at the back of church where the names of any relatives or friends who have died can be added - they do not have to be members of St. Margaret's, and we would be happy to receive prayer requests from people who are not members of our church. You are very welcome to attend either or both of these services.

2014 CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS

2014 marked the centenary celebrations for the Church in Renfrew. No fewer than 10 events were organised throughout the year to celebrate including a re-dedication service and an impressive Flower Festival.  One of the highlights of our celebrations was a Civic Reception hosted by Renfrewshire's Provost Anne Hall and held in Renfrew Town Hall in November. Many of St Margaret's regular attendees came to celebrate.
