Our regular round-up of news received from churches

Freuchie Parish Church in Fife, like many across Scotland, enthusiastically contributes to Blythswood Care's Shoebox Appea, where a shoebox is filled with presents which are then distributed to vulnerable people in Ukraine and Eastern Europe at Christmas. The organising committee at Freuchie are always delighted and thankful for the support they receive both from Church members and from members of the wider community whether it is donating a full or part box, knitting hats and gloves or helping with the collection.

This year there were a very large number of boxes donated from Freuchie - a record in fact! Pictured: Elizabeth, Ailsa, Rhona and Irene with some of the boxes collected from Freuchie.


  

The Presbytery of Glasgow has held a special service of Ordination and Induction for two new ministers at St Mungo’s Church in Cumbernauld. The Revs Fiona Crawford and James Gemmell have both successfully completed their studies at Glasgow University and have now finished their parish placements.

Fiona is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art and worked in financial services and in the public and voluntary sectors before spending four years as Strategy Officer with the Presbytery of Glasgow.

James is following a family tradition as his father is a Church of Scotland minister. After graduating from Aberdeen University, he worked in insurance before beginning his training for the ministry.

Fiona and James have been ordained into a new team ministry in Kildrum linked with St Mungo’s and Cumbernauld Old as Assistant Ministers. They will work across these three congregations, guiding them through a process of change management to achieve a union.
