That this House congratulates the congregations, past and present, of St John the Evangelist Parish Church, Barrhead, on the 175th anniversary of their Church; notes that the Right Reverend John Keenan, Bishop of Paisley, dedicated the Church on the occasion of its 175th year; recognises that the congregation has worshipped in the current church building in Aurs Road since 1961, having been in temporary accommodation in the Parish Hall and Tower Rais, following the said destruction of the old gothic St John's Church in an electrical-related fire in 1941; values the immense contribution to local and international communities made by the work of those associated with the Church over the 175 years it has been in Barrhead, including supporting local young people and families in need, schools in Malawi and other countries and helping the work of Mary's Meals; and wishes all associated with St John's Parish Church well for the next 175 years and beyond.
