Pitlochry Church held their 5th Annual Christmas Tree Festival on Saturday December 2 and Sunday December 3, raising £800 each for Feed the Minds (helping education in low-income countries) and Sistema Scotland (providing musical education in Raploch, Stirling, and Douglas, Dundee). The winning adult tree (pictured) represented the Tryst Gardening Group. The winning children’s tree was a “Convenience for Santa”, produced by the Pitlochry Scout Troop.

There were also craft stalls, soup lunches, teas and cakes.

Dunbartonshire Guild’s Carol Service was held in Riverside Church. Members brought bags full of food and Christmas goodies for Foodshare, and the offering of £499 went to Glasgow City Mission.

A new tapestry created by Glenys Small for Edzell Lethnot Glenesk Guild was dedicated by the Rev Dr Wayne Pearce.

The organist and choirmaster of Falkirk Trinity Church celebrated half a century in the post last month. Bob Tait was appointed to what was Falkirk Old Parish Church in November 1967. He is pictured with church minister, the Rev Robert ST Allan.

The Eco-group at Inverkip Church have achieved an award for Environmental Best Practice in the Scottish Green Apple Awards.

They competed against more than 500 other nominations and will attend an award ceremony in Glasgow in March 2018 to hear if they have won gold, silver or bronze.

The group has been established for less than 18 months and in that time has achieved their first award from Eco-Congregation Scotland and been highly commended in the Church Times Green Awards.
