Cairngryffe Parish covers the villages of Carmichael, Covington, Pettinain, Sandilands
and Thankerton and the surrounding areas of South Lanarkshire, Scotland
On 1st September 2013 the congregations of The Tinto Parishes overwhelmingly voted for Rev George Shand as their new minister. The call has been sustained and Rev Shand will be inducted to the charge on 16th January 2014.
Our vision is to be a caring church family reaching out to all actual and potential family members in an effort to share God's love throughout the parish. By doing this we aim to be a recognised centre of worship and place of comfort throughout the parish for all the family of God, not only in the church building, but in the way we live our lives each day. We will measure our progress in the quality of what we achieve rather than by the quantity of people attending on Sunday.
