Parish News Round-Up From Around Scotland

The Presbytery of Ayr has raised over £40,000 through an alternative gift scheme buying much-needed equipment for people in its partner presbyteries of Bandawe and Limphasa in Malawi.

The scheme started in 2013, with people invited to buy a mosquito net for £5 as a gift at Christmas. In 2015 the appeal was for solar lamps, helping reduce the danger of fires and fumes in confined spaces; and this year the focus switched to the purchase of seed and fertiliser.

A group of 20 are going out to Malawi in July from Alloway Parish Church, and a team from Malawi are visiting in September.


 

Long Service Certificates were presented to five elders of Motherwell St Mary’s who have each served for 30 years. From left: the Rev Bryce Calder, Janette Rennie, Harry Corbet, Findlay Cornelius, Les Innes, Bill Taylor and session clerk Allan Joyce.

Internationally-known singer Barbara Dickson is to sing at the latest in a series of celebrations at Dunfermline Abbey church next month. Ms Dickson will sing ‘Scots Wha hae’ during the performance of a play on the rediscovery of King Robert the Bruce’s bones in the grounds of the abbey, which took place 200 years ago.
The play, ‘Bones, Bogles and Coronets’, has been written by local playwright Diane M Stewart and will be prefaced by significant musical input from the pupils of Pittencrieff Primary School, the Abbey Choir of Dunfermline and local musicians from Dunfermline Folk Club.

The play starts at 7pm and tickets are now available, priced £15 for adults and £10 for children/concessions, from ‘Sew, Yarn, Crafty’ in the High Street; from Dunfermline Abbey before and after Sunday services, or via the Dunfermline Abbey website.
