The Sunday Club at Moncur Memorial Church, on the Island of Stronsay in Orkney, planted a garden in a disused greenhouse during their summer term.

During the project, the young people learned about the parables of the mustard seed and the sower, planted fruit and flowers, and built the Sea of Galilee and the Mount of Olives.

The club took the last service before the holidays, explaining what they had learned, and then took the congregation to the greenhouse to show what they had been working on. Then everyone moved to the larger community polytunnel where they enjoyed a variety of biblical snacks, including locusts!

  


During the Sunday  worship on July 7 at Kirknewton and East Calder Parish Church, Robert Peden was presented with a long service certificate for 60 years’ service as an elder in the same congregation into which he was ordained. The photograph shows Robert, his wife Margaret and church minister, the Rev Alistair Cowper.


Many friends and family were present to see Jim Colvin presented with a certificate to commemorate sixty years as organist in Ayrshire at a joint service of Fisherton linked with Kirkoswald held in Kirkoswald Parish Church on Sunday July 7.  Pictured l-r: Elspeth Carter, Jim Colvin, the Rev Ian Stirling, Elizabeth Veitch.
