Preshal is the Gaelic word for precious, and that is how the Preshal Trust feels about everyone who comes through their doors.
In a friendly, caring, loving and supportive way Preshal seeks to tackle head-on, the problem of social exclusion in the Linthouse area of Glasgow. This problem is manifested in poverty, alcohol and drug addiction, low literacy and numeracy levels, depression and low self-esteem. The Trust, working with other agencies, provides a wide range of social, recreational and educational activities which enable these issues to be dealt with effectively.They adopt an holistic approach seeking to cater for the whole person, including meeting individual physical, mental and – as a Christian rooted organisation - spiritual needs.
The congregation has supported Preshal in a number of ways in recent years: a sponsored bike ride was one, the collection at the Watchnight service was another, members give of their time to lead Bible studies and serve on the Board of the Trust.
