We send our congratulations and thanks to everyone who was involved in the smooth running of the Easter Holiday Club earlier this month. This year our local team were joined by the Church of Scotland Youth Worker and members of the Oban Baptist Church.
27 children attended over the week with an average of 20 each day. There were 16 from our parish, others came from Connel and Oban.
We thank the parents who brought their children along to the Club and those who remembered it in their prayers.
