Kilbrandon hosted a different event for Good Friday this year. Maggie played her wonderful choice of music at intervals during the hour and people were free to come and go in their own time. Pictures and prayer stations were arranged around the church and bibles were open at appropriate passages for meditation. The pictures will remain in place until Pentecost, June 9th, with a simplified guide because other props have been removed. The model of Jerusalem was also used for a Palm Sunday telling of the Godly Play story “Jesus and Jerusalem” in both Kilchattan and Kilbrandon churches. This story has also been told in both our primary schools and for a local gathering of Godly Play storytellers.
We said a fond farewell to Hester and Ken on Sunday with a very enjoyable bring & share lunch and speeches from Martin Waddell, Chris Thornhill and Georgina Dalton on behalf of each congregation. As a token of our thanks and as a goodbye gift we presented them with a Colin Prior Photo, a generous cheque from the Netherlorn congregation and a card signed by everybody who was there. It was a great day! We will miss them but wish them all the very best on this new exciting venture.
Alison Hay will be the Interim Moderator for Netherlorn Churches until a new minister is appointed. Will will keep you updated on progress. In the meantime here are some photos of the day.
Thanks to Hazel for the photos.
