A banner capturing some of the work of Dundonald Parish Church in Ayrshire over the last year has been created by two members of the congregations.

Frances Mayor and Shirley Shaw were among a small team who designed and constructed the banner, which is hung at the front of the church providing a warm and colourful welcome for those returning to worship.

The banner captures some of the key positive moments of the church’s life during the Covid-19 pandemic, including the distribution of seasonal bags to over 250 children in the village in spring, summer, autumn, Christmas and Easter and a series of eye-catching displays over the last 18 months offering hope and remembrance to the village. The banner also reflects the church’s increased online engagement and improvements to the website during the pandemic.

The Kirk Session of Cromarty linked with Resolis and Urquhart in the presbytery of Ross has celebrated more than 240 years of service by seven elders.

Special certificates were sent to them during the Moderatorial year of the Very Rev Dr Martin Fair in 2020/21 but the Session was able to formally acknowledge their contribution at their first face-to-face meeting in 15 months.

Minister, the Rev Terrance Burns said: “It was a privilege to recognise and acknowledge not only their service, but their sense of commitment and dedication to the church. The fact that they've accrued well over 240-years of combined service is a testimony to their faithfulness. Needless to say, I'm grateful for their wisdom, insight, and co-operation as we work together to serve the church.”

Those honoured were  Anne Fraser (38 years), Maureen Rose (26 years), Mairi Wallace (41 years), Margaret Kinsman (Session Clerk, seated), Andrea Rodway (36 years), Andrew Murdoch (56 years) and Richard Fyfe (25 years) and Hector MacDonald (26 years).
