Greenhills Parish Church, East Kilbride, joined with the Methodist and United Reformed Churches for an interfaith event which included representatives from the Sikh and Baha'i communities and the local MSP and MP. There was a sharing of foods as they followed the national Interfaith Week theme ‘Eat, Share, Love’, and the parish minister, the Rev John Brewster gave a reflection on food poverty.


The Border Kirk, Carlisle hosted a fundraising quiz event for Mark Calder of Embrace the Middle East, whose ultra marathons across pilgrimage routes in Scotland and the north of England have been raising money to help Iraqi refugees return to their homeland.

Having just completed St Bega’s run, the 13th of his 14 pilgrimages this year, Mark talked of his passion for the Middle East, his desire to foster the small green shoots of peace, to rebuild lives, and of the importance of God to him in the pressures of running and life. Singing as well, Mark chanted the Lord’s prayer in Syriac Aramaic, the language of Jesus, reminding us all that Jesus was a Middle Eastern man, whose life had been beset by danger and whose world was affected by resettlement and war.
