Christmas carols at Cappielow

Cappielow Park played host to a very well-received fourth annual Inverclyde Christian Initiative Christmas carol service on Monday evening.

There was a good turnout as fans gathered in the main stand to sing festive-season favourites with the help of the Greenock and Port Glasgow Salvation Army bands.

There were readings from Provost Martin Brennan, Bishop John Keenan, Bishop of Paisley, our chairman Douglas Rae OBE, Rev Francis Murphy from the Mount Kirk in Greenock.

And in a memorable moment the football club’s chaplains Rev Dave Hall and Ian Arthur were joined by first-team players Michael Doyle and Gary Oliver.

The crowd also enjoyed hearing from singer and songwriter Steph Macleod, once a homeless alcoholic who sang and told of his finding Jesus, while a gospel message was brought by Mark Fleming, Chaplain to the SFA.
