Two years later than planned due to the pandemic, a special service was held on July 31 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Lochmaben Church, Dumfries and Gallery. The church has the distinction of having the oldest working bells in Scotland dating back to the 14th century.

The service, led by the Very Rev Dr Susan Brown, was well attended by members, friends from the local community and further afield, and representatives from other Christian denominations in the area. Afterwards, Dr Brown planted a commemorative rowan tree in the church grounds.


Blackburn and Seafield Parish Church in West Lothian celebrated the 60th anniversary of the ordination of Claud R M Naylor as an Elder.

Claud was ordained in 1962 at St Christopher’s Church in Edinburgh and has served at Cadder Church in Bishopbriggs and Kirkliston Parish Church, before settling at Blackburn and Seafield in 2004. He has been Presbytery Elder and a Commissioner to the General Assembly, Sunday School Superintendent, youth club leader and Youth Fellowship President, Property Convener and Stewardship Promoter; and continues to be a very active and committed Elder.

He is pictured with church minister, the Rev Sandra Boyd


Torquhil Campbell, 13th Duke of Argyll, was ordained into the Kirk Session at West Lochfyneside Parish Church in Argyll earlier this year, at Inveraray Church. He is pictured with fellow members of the Session and church minister, the Rev Dorothy Wallace.
