St Nicholas Church, Lanark, with the help of a local Tesco raised over £800 to purchase a defibrillator for the church and halls. Elders have been trained to use the defibrillator, which will be brought into the church during services and kept with the first aid station at the halls at other times.

Members of Freuchie Parish Church Guild in Fife spent the winter knitting and produced about 100 charming Easter chicks, all with a chocolate egg inside. These chicks will be displayed in local businesses all over Freuchie and will be available for a donation. All money raised will be donated to the Guild projects which help people all over Scotland and beyond. Pictured: the past president of the Guild, Margaret Hill with her husband Everett surrounded by some of the knitted chicks.

The Rev Wes Brandon and members of the Border Kirk Carlisle and Longtown took part in an ecumenical World Day of Prayer service in the Community Centre at Longtown. They were joined by the Rev Eric Robinson, Rector of the Anglican Esk Parishes, and the Rev Tokunbo Asogban of the North Cumbria Methodist Circuit as well as ladies from each denomination. Special prayers were said for Ukraine.
