What’s your favourite hymn? 

During January we’ll be trying to fit in hymns that are nominated by the congregation, so if you have a favourite just fill in the slip overleaf and drop it into the box at the back of the church or email info@granton.org.uk. Include a few words about why you like it and how it is important to you.

 

Christmas Hampers – the end of an era

For many years, the Christmas Hamper Draw has been an eagerly awaited event at Granton and has raised many thousands of pounds. Sadly, Barbara, Sylvia and Rose have decided that the Draw has run its course. We are most grateful for the time and energy that these wonderful ladies contributed to our Christmas. We will be thanking them at today’s service.
