Evie Grace Gilmour, baptised at Craignish Parish Church, 23 September 2018
Marilyn Shedden, Convener of Argyll Presbytery Business Committee, was a much appreciated speaker at the Netherlorn Churches Renewal of Worship Conference at Cuilfail Hotel on 3 February 2018. Soon afterwards Marilyn preached this sermon at Inveraray at the inauguration of a Hub-Style Ministry for the area. Its challenge has been widely appreciated and we are glad to make it available on the Netherlorn Churches site.
A service of remembrance and thanksgiving was held at Kilchattan church on 29th October. It was a time to reflect and remember loved ones for anyone who is bereaved. Ken conducted the service with such beautiful, meaningful words and prayers. John read a Psalm and Fiona a poem. If people wished, they lit a candle for loved ones, while Jean read out their names. A very moving service much appreciated by those who attended. Afterwards delicious homebaking was enjoyed.
This month at Messy Church we made edible gardens, bubble snakes, flower prayers, the tree of life and played with the Godly Play pieces.
Worship involved apples, olives and grapes which made us think about the garden of Eden, the garden of Gethsemane and the garden of paradise. We sang The Servant King and For The Beauty of the Earth and ate lovely macaroni cheese and yummy brownies and ice cream.
Sing for Seed was a great success raising funds and awareness towards our Seed for Life campaign. Our guest celebrity at the Sing for Seed event in Seil Island Hall at the weekend was Vera Kamtukule, CEO of the Malawi Scotland Partnership. Thanks to all who took part and contributed to a great night!
