CHURCH GROUPS

Cadzow Choir

Cadzow Choir is a vibrant group of eighteen souls which tries to enhance Sunday worship by leading praise and contributing appropriate music at special services. We maintain the Scottish Presbyterian choral tradition of 4 part singing and provide an Introit and Gloria each Sunday. The choir comprises 8 sopranos, 5 altos, 3 tenors and 2 basses. We have a large repertoire including almost 30 pieces written specially for the choir and enjoy the support of possibly the best church organist in Scotland playing a magnificent pipe instrument upgraded in the 1990s. Anyone interested in joining us will be made most welcome; the ability to read music, while desirable, is not essential. We meet for practice at 9.45 each Sunday. If you would like to join us, contact Eddie on 01698 422066.

Eco Group

Eco-Congregation Scotland is a Christian environmental organisation helping local church congregations address environmental issues through their life and mission. It is an ecumenical programme which helps congregations link environmental issues to their faith and to take action in their church and community.

Cadzow was the 47th church in Scotland to be awarded the EcoCongregation Award in May 2007, followed by a second award in 2009. To achieve this a range of activities were planned that involved everyone in the church, including introduction of a recycling station, a Fair Trade stall, eco themes in children’s organisations, eco speakers to the men’s and women’s groups, planting bulbs and placing bird feeders in the church grounds, re-development of a plot of waste ground into a wildlife garden and recycling the Christmas tree into an Easter cross. Currently there are several recycling schemes ongoing and there is an active gardening group maintaining and upkeeping the church grounds.

Pastoral Care Team

Cadzow has a team of ladies and gentlemen members of the congregation who undertake to visit those church members who for various reasons cannot attend Worship. Regular visits are made, and help to keep the housebound or less able in touch with the church and church affairs. There are currently 13 team members, visiting around 30 in the parish.

A friendly word, a little prayer, perhaps a cup of tea, a shared memory, a birthday remembered and perhaps a holiday postcard….all go a long way to reduce feelings of isolation. The housebound and less able should know that we still love and care. If they cannot get to church, then the church will come to them. Visits are very much appreciated and fellowship and friendship shared by both visitor and “visitee”!

Pastoral Care

If any housebound church member requests Home Communion, then this is served by the minister, with one, perhaps two team members.

The team members rely on elders or other members of the congregation to pass on information regarding anyone who would benefit from a visit.

Team meetings are held twice a year to review the visiting list and allocate additions to carers.
