A garden party held by St John’s and Dairsie United Parish Church, Cupar, raised over £500 for Syrian refugees living in Fife.

Around 40 church members and friends, joined by Cupar Pipe Band, saw a display of drawings by refugee children stuck in camps In Lebanon. One member also spoke of his harrowing experience working for two weekends in the ‘jungle’ refugee camp at Calais.

The newly arrived Minister at St John’s and Dairsie, the Rev Gavin Black, said: “We need to recall that Jesus himself was a refugee. I am proud that the Church I have been called to is so outward looking and caring”.

The funds raised will go to Fife Migrants Forum to help establish a Women’s Group among the 150 Syrian refugees already in Fife.


The Tiffany window newly installed at Dunfermline Abbey Church, was dedicated on August 12. The window was commissioned by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, and the installation finally fulfilled his wish that it be placed in the nave of the Abbey.

Pictured: Vartan Gregorian, president of Carnegie Corporation of New York (who gifted some of the funds for the installation), and Mark Bamburgh of Scottish Glass Studios, which was responsible for the conservation of the window before the installation in the church.
