The ladies of the four churches in Auchterarder, in Perth and Kinross, came together in October with a view to creating a knitted nativity set. It was initially planned to knit one set to go round each church in turn, however the ladies got on so well that they decided each church would have its own nativity set and everyone would help each other.

As well as the sets in the church, one set was used for a Nativity trail for children to follow round the village. Shops and cafes were asked to put a nativity figure in their windows, alongside posters with  QR codes for the children to scan and hear the story of that particular figure. Many Marys with baby Jesus were knitted and these were given out as prizes.


Sandyford Henderson Memorial Church in Glasgow welcomed 16 new members in one service earlier this month. The new intake was made up of four baptisms, two transfers, two joining by resolution of the Kirk Session and eight by Profession of Faith. They including people from Scotland, England, Northern Ireland, India, Ghana, China and Hong Kong, and ranged in age from late teens to 40s, with just over half being students.

The new members are pictured with minister, the Rev Ben Thorp. One has been edited out and another’s face blurred for confidentiality reasons.
