CRCW Called! MarieCrop Web

Accredited by the CRCW Programme Sub-Committee back in January 2016, we are delighted that one of our long-standing Church Related Community Workers (CRCW) Marie Trubic has been called and was inducted in a service at The Hall, in Priesthill in June 2017.

Location and background:
Priesthill URC and Shawlands URC have been a joint pastorate for 15 years. Priesthill and Househillwood are part of Greater Pollok, a sprawling, post-war housing scheme on the south-west outskirts of Glasgow. Peat Road - a dual carriageway and where our church ‘The Hall’ is located - has been a long-standing dividing line between the two areas. The recently re-invigorated Neighbourhood Forum is focussed on trying to break down the remaining barriers.

Kirsty March 2016 CROP WebCRCW minister - Kirsty Mabbott

Bettws LEP is a partnership between the Church in Wales and the URC. The congregations joined together in fellowship at St. David’s Church in Wales and the URC church building was sold to fund a CRCW post. The URC manse was sold to the Church in Wales, initially as a curate’s house; then, as the need arose, it was converted into a base for community projects and for the CRCW minister to work from.

Alison Dalton March16 WEBCRCW - Alison Dalton

The Building Bridges Project is based at The Church at the Centre, the name adopted by Tonge Moor United Reformed Church in 2006. Since 2007 (initially under the leadership of CRCW Pat Oliver) the partners in the project, the church and organisations within the neighbourhood sought to foster mutual respect and support between generations and to help develop the Centre into a hub for the community. Pat Oliver was called to Avenue St. Andrews, Southampton in December 2013.
