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.

In March .....
20 March 2015
World Day of Prayer. On March 6th 19 folk of various denominations gathered together in Ford Spence Court to share with Christians around the world in the worship service. This year it had been provided by Christians in the Bahamas. The service, entitled 'Jesus said to them: Do you know what I have done to you?' which focused around the Gospel account of Jesus washing his Disciples' feet, was introduced, led and read by 5 different voices from our Parish. It was followed by a tasty tea and chat.
Lenten Table Talk Throughout March a dozen folk have met at the Manse on Tuesday evenings for study and discussion. This year they have been looking at the story of Elijah (1 Kings 17-19) and reflecting on how his experiences can help us today.
