Members of the new Parish of Traprain, in East Lothian, are pictured on a walk up Traprain Law, one of a series of social events organised throughout August as pandemic restrictions were lifted.

Prior to the walk, members of the parish had been unable to meet socially since it was formed from the union of the congregations of Athelstaneford, Traprain and Whitekirk in May. The series of events also included a talk on the Saltire and the work of the Scottish Flag Trust, a Café Quiz run by the church’s young people, and a ‘moving and uplifting’ Songs of Praise service.


Milton of Campsie minister the Rev Julie Moody declared herself to be ‘blessed beyond measure’ by this year’s ecumenical two-week double-delivery mission which went online as well as in-person on the theme of Through The Wardrobe. Julie was assisted in the mission by a team of young people including her brother Gareth, sister-in-law Holly (both musicians based in London) and her sister Jenni (a graphic designer/animator based in Perth).

The picture shows Julie in front of the mission’s community art project created, during which villagers and visitors were invited to paint a wooden feather which was then attached to a board.    The finished article was a magnificent illustration of the words from Psalm 91:4 – ‘Under his wings you will find refuge’. The board is now on permanent display in Milton of Campsie Parish Church.


Vanora Rankine and James Johnston have recently been inducted as elders at Lochmaben Parish Church, in Dumfries and Galloway.


Two elders at Kirkoswald Parish Church in the Presbytery of Ayr have received long service certificates. John K Dunlop (36 years’ service) and Alexander Hamilton (34 years) are pictured with the Rev Dr David Hume.
