The National Launch Service for Prisoners Week is at 18.30 on Monday 19th November in Bridge of Allan Parish Church (12 Keir St, Bridge of Allan, Stirling, FK9 4NW), with tea and coffee. The Service this year takes a new shape, with a variety of features and participants. It is ecumenical and open to all.
