All Saints Sunday was very special at The Border Kirk, Carlisle. Candles were lit in a moving time of reflection as the names of those in the congregation who had passed away in the last year were read out. Not forgotten were others not listed but known to members and to the Iranian asylum seekers who worship with at the church each Sunday, especially as this was also the International Day of Prayer for Persecuted Christians.

Minister, the Rev Wes Brandon, presented a long service certificate to elder Christian Robertson, who for over 30 years has been actively involved in outreach, at home and abroad, in organising the church’s Traidcraft stall and in Christian Aid, besides being a key member of the Worship Group.

Seven elders of Elgin High Kirk received long service certificates totalling over 240 years’ service to the Church of Scotland on November 6.

Una Urquhart, Ann Grant, Jean Easterling and Mary Roger all celebrated 30 years’ service, while David Trotter, Rosemary Richards and George Irvine were given certificates for 40 years.

The presentations were made by MDS Paula Baker.
