SUTHERLAND HERITAGE CELEBRATION

The congregations of the churches of the Kyle of Sutherland recently donned period costumes as part of a heritage celebration.

The doors of the old church at Edderton were opened especially for the occasion by the Edderton Old Church Preservation Trust. The gathered congregations dressed in a variety of period costumes including a mediaeval maiden, a highland clearance woman, an edwardian gentleman, a victorian lady, a twenties 'flapper' girl and a Second World War bomber pilot.

Minister, the Rev Anthony Jones welcomed everyone and opened the time of celebration with a prayer giving thanks for the "heritage of faith" of everyone who has worshipped in the old church over the centuries.

 SERVICE OF THANKSGIVING AT MISSION HALL HANDOVER

It was a sad occasion but, also an opportunity for thanksgiving as the Mission Hall at Amat, Sutherland, celebrated over 100 years of Christian witness to the local community.

The building which has closed for worship has been bought by the nearby Croick Estate. Originally gifted to the parish at the time of Kincardine and Croick by Lady Ross and her sister of Balnagown Estate, the hall was estabished as a missionary outpost to the local crofting community in the early part of the last century. It was to be used as a place of 'education and christian instruction' and at one time was used as a school house. Up until recently services were still being held in the winter months only.

The short service was conducted by the parish minister, the Rev Anthony Jones.
