Inverness Church Highlights Poverty

Thursday January 23 2014

A city centre congregation is to highlight the plight of homeless in Inverness and the Highlands in a novel way on Sunday, with a supper and a dramatised reading of the New Testament parable of the Prodigal Son.

The event at Old High St Stephen's Church, Inverness, will also feature talks by and conversations with Dr Paul Monaghan and Alex Gilchrist of Highland Homeless Trust, who will emphasise the constant and increasing cries locally for help in the current financial climate.

In conjunction with Inverness Church of Scotland Presbytery, it is the church's contribution to Poverty and Homelessness Action Week, a major national publicity drive to help the poorest in our society, which starts on Saturday.

Old High St Stephen's minister the Rev Peter Nimmo said: "It is a chance for us to eat and meet, to worship and to learn first-hand of the issues, and for us, as followers of Jesus, to reflect on how we can use our gifts in response to this need.

"This invitation to join us and hear of these problems is being extended to folk of all faiths or none. All who are interested are welcome."

The event starts at 6pm on Sunday January 26.
