The Annual Pet Service
Coinciding with the Bridge of Weir Gala Week, our Annual Pet Service reminds our community not only of the beauty of where we live, in verdant and leafy Renfrewshire, but also the joy of all creation.
Our Pet Service is always an opportunity for folk in the community to think about the companionship that their pets bring, the comfort, joy and warmth. The service is about giving thanks for created order and includes a biblical reading, a thoughtful line or two from St Francis, hymns, prayers and a few reflections by our minister, Revd. Heller Gonzalez. Yes, there are blessings too, given to people and animals, for all of us are part of God’s handiwork.
Up until now, our 4-legged animal guests have been wonderfully well behaved and each is introduced by its owner to the congregation.
Oh, and every pet guest goes home with a doggy bag – or cat bag as the case may be!!
