Parish News Round-up

Thursday June 6 2019

Our regular round-up of news received from churches.

Please send items of parish news to magazine@lifeandwork.org or Life and Work, 121 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 4YN.

Kinross Parish Church received a visual history book of its group ‘All Friends Together’, which is affiliated to Prospects Across Scotland. Prospects believes that ‘a church which is more accessible for people with learning disabilities is more accessible for everyone’.

The book was handed over by its creators, Lindsay Cant and Anne Sutherland, to the Rev Alan D Reid at a service to mark Learning Disability Week.

Lindsay Cant said: “We meet monthly in Kinross Parish Church to sing, hear Bible stories (sometimes with the help of puppets, props or music), enjoy a fellowship meal and, generally, have a lot of fun.”

The group counts on a team of volunteers and the support of three local ministers. Anne Sutherland said: “The new book will help spread the word around churches in Kinross-shire and beyond. Several of the other Prospects groups in Scotland are interested in seeing the completed book, and perhaps developing something similar for their own group.”

You can contact Anne about developing your own book at office@kinrossparishchurch.org. For general information about Prospects visit www.prospectsacrossscotland.org.uk


 

St Ninian's Parish Church in Glenrothes played host to a reunion of past and present members of their praise band at morning worship on Sunday June 2. The Songs of Praise service marked 25 years since the foundation of the praise band.

Parish minister the Rev David Smith said "The service this morning was amazing. It was great to see friendships from over 25 years of worship rekindled as if it was yesterday. What a brilliant morning.”
