Festival Service 2007 - New African Branch Inaugurated
At our Festival service held at All Saints’, Bearsden we were delighted to admit
15 new members who come from many different countries within Africa.
They are hoping to start a new branch with the help of their minister Rev Lucas Njenga.
Their church is affiliated with the Anglican church (at present they worship in Glasgow
Caledonian University) and they run the 'Chat House' in Maryhill Road, Glasgow, a
centre for community transformation, social integration and fun, there are several
outreach projects there. Their choir lifted our worship and the spectacle of everyone
in their national dresses was wonderful said our Diocesan President Enid Scobie.
Growing Together Day
Our diocesan church links with Kentucky in USA and Byumba in Rwanda were bought together
at Bishopbriggs for a day (when they were touring the diocese) to learn more about
the worldwide work of the MU.
The Annunciation of Our Lord to the Blessed Virgin Mary
Lady Day Service, Dumfries, April 2006
Father of love, through your most Holy Spirit, Mary the Jewish girl conceived your
Son; may his beauty, his humility, his all-transforming grace be born in us, and
may we never despise the strange and stirring gentleness of your almighty power.
