Residents in Rhu and Shandon are invited to attend Christmas church services and events next week.

Rhu and Shandon Church will be holding a Christmas singalong service, led by Fiona Hughes, on Sunday, December 24 at 6pm.

There is no 'Watchnight' service at the Rhu church on Christmas Eve, but villagers of all ages are welcome to come to the evening service for a 'fun musical Christmas celebration'.

And on Christmas Day there will be a service at 11am led by Andrew Nisbet.

Then on Thursday, December 28, the church is hosting an afternoon of music, wine and sandwich lunch.

The event, which starts at 1pm, will see Djordje Gajic and Andrea Gajic play for an hour of music from top Italian composers.

Anyone interested is asked to donate £15 which will go towards the Ellen Macarthur Cancer Trust.
