And the nominees are...

You might have thought that the 2018 awards season was done and dusted when the last Oscar statuette was handed out in the very early hours of Monday morning. But no! We still have the SCM Awards to hand out this coming Saturday at the Gifts of Grace gathering at Wellington Church in Glasgow. We’re looking forward to recognising our amazing members, groups and affiliates!

If you’re not booked on to Gifts of Grace yet and would like to join us, you can book up until Thursday 8th at 12 noon. Click here to see the programme and here to book a place. If you can’t join us, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #giftsofgrace18 for all the news and views, and those all-important winners!
