Over 200 transparent envelopes containing knitted hearts were hung from the Cross and pavement railings at Banff Parish Church over Easter weekend with the invitation to help yourself to a heart or two and pass one on as an Easter gift to family, friend or neighbour.  By Sunday evening the offer had been taken up and all hearts were gone.


The congregation of the Kirk of the Holy Rood in Grangemouth decorated special Easter crosses with flowers donated by the local Morrison's supermarket. Minister, the Rev Ronald Matandakufa is pictured with the cross in the church garden.


Knitters and crocheters at Carrick Knowe Parish Church in Edinburgh decorated gates at the church with flowers to mark Holy Week and Easter.


Easter at Edenshead Parish Church in Fife was brightened by hundreds of daffodils made by many nimble fingers from all around the parish and beyond. Organiser Jenni Whittle helped decorate a cross in Church and the railings outside the church, ensuring everyone who attended received a wearable daffodil with a brooch pin on the back.


Members of the congregation of Paisley: Sherwood Greenlaw donated flowers for an Easter floral cross at the church.


Members and friends at the Abbey Church of Dunfermline crocheted and knitted a colourful display of flowers as a message of hope for the local community and invited visitors to take the flowers away as gifts or gift them to others. Families were also invited to take part in a special Muddy Easter Trail using QR codes around the grounds.


Carnoustie Panbride Church celebrated with a floral cross.


Two floral crosses offered an Easter message at Motherwell: St Mary's Church.

Edinburgh: Willowbrae offered an 'Easter love letter' of crocheted hearts for the local community.
