Kingussie Parish Church has launched a virtual pilgrimage, inviting people to walk, jog, cycle or swim, with the aim of together covering the 3444 miles to Bethlehem by Christmas Eve.

The virtual pilgrimage is an idea of the fundraising team, hoping to help support the church’s finances which have been hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. You can register to take part, and log your miles, through the event’s Facebook page and support the fundraising effort at 

St Columba’s Church, Glenrothes, welcomed the Moderator of the General Assembly, the Rt Rev Dr Martin Fair, to a service marking its sixtieth anniversary on April 18.

As part of the service, elders Jean Christie, Carol Gibson, Cathie Gilchrist, Ewan Oliver and Grace Seath received long service certificates, having served for more than 30 years.

The Moderator and his wife Elaine are pictured with the five elders and minister, the Rev Alan Kimmitt.

Gordon S Young has been presented with a long service certificate after serving 50 years as an elder in the Church of Scotland. He was ordained in Crimond, Aberdeenshire in 1971 but moved to Fraserburgh Old the following year, where he has been an active elder ever since. He is currently a member of the church’s Finance Committee and, as a Senior Elder, also looks after one of the Sunday morning duty teams.
