our 'eco plum tree' ..
04 May 2015
The little Victoria plum tree which we planted last spring (see news story of 16.02.14!) flowered beautifully this spring in St. Modan's garden. Hopefully it had enough pollen left to feed this small tortoise shell butterfly, which had emerged from hybernation in the church building.
eco congregation gathering .....
25 April 2015
Morag, Lynda and Aileen attended the 2015 eco congregation Scotland's Annual Gathering in Falkirk on 24th April. The theme was 'Preparing for Paris'. Keynote speakers were Dr. Aileen McLeod minister for Environment, climate change and land reform in the Scottish government and Rev Kathy Galloway, a Minister in the Church of Scotland and head of Christian Aid in Scotland. They all had an inspiring day and look forward to sharing their enthusiasm to become an eco-congregaton with the rest of the congregation...
We also look forward to being part of the baton relay at the beginning of June.
On Easter morning .....
05 April 2015
It was wonderful to be able to welcome so many visitors, friends and family to Ardchattan Kirk on Easter morning.
As is our tradition - can anyone tell us when it started? - the youngsters participated in egg rolling after worship. The beautiful brown hard boiled eggs supplied were amazingly resilient!
Afterwards some folk returned home to sample the Meaningful Chocolate eggs which had been ordered through the our church - they include the Easter Story and are made of fairtrade chocolate.
