Gorbals Churches Together Palm Sunday Walk, 1 April 2012
About 80 people from 5 congregations in the Gorbals enjoyed walking, talking and praying together on Palm Sunday.

The walkers started outside Blessed John Duns Scotus RC church and finished with tea in the new Gorbals Parish Church (CofS). They stopped at 5 other places of religious and social significance in the Gorbals. Prayers were offered for the history of the Christian, Jewish and Muslim communities in the area; for all of today’s Gorbals citizens; and for wider social, political and religious concerns.

The congregations taking part were: Blessed John Duns Scotus (RC), Church of God, Gorbals Parish Church (CofS), J-Praise International Church of God, and the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Minstries. People really enjoyed the opportunity to get to know one another. There was a real sense of fellowship, and talk of doing it again next year.[/note]
