If you missed the live streamed service Celebration of 240 years of worship in Ardoch we have a recording posted. Try to watch in full screen.
We gratefully acknowledge the expertise of Sanctus Media in streaming this Service and thank Neil MacLennan for all his help and advice.
What a great service of celebration we had last Sunday: there were four reasons to celebrate:
- The re-opening of the church for worship after thirteen months of the building being closed.
- Celebrating the 240th anniversary of the church being built and opened for public worship.
- Celebrating the visit from the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.
- Celebrating the launching of the brand new Audio- Visual System.
This will help our church move forward into a more modern method of presenting services and a better connection with the congregation.
It was so good to see our congregation meeting face to face yesterday after thirteen months apart.
The weather was lovely and sunny and the spring flowers in the grounds looked beautiful. It is well worth a visit to the grounds if you haven’t already seen them!
More pictures to follow.
Two knitters have given Pat Anderson this wonderful collection of sets of jumpers, snoods and mittens, all of which will be greatly appreciated by Blythswood Care. The late Margaret Rennie will certainly be missed, as she was a great knitter and donated many, many articles over the years. Another six ladies are still actively knitting and in due course all these and more lovely woollen goods will be distributed.
On 1st April, Liz Paterson gave a most interesting talk about her experiences visiting the Seema Project in India.
More information about this project will be in the next issue of Keeping you in the Loop.
Next month’s speaker will be our own minister, Mairi.
