IGeneral Meeting 2013

Scottish Trip

Linda Brownlie, Diocesan President of St Andrew’s, Dunkeld and Dunblane (and Provincial Secretary), organised a five day trip around the General Meeting held in Bath this year.


It was a most enjoyable event starting on Monday 10th and ending on Friday 14th June.  You can read more about it and see a gallery of photos by clicking here.



Provincial President’s Commissioning

Jean McPherson Richardson was commissioned as Provincial President during a service at St Ninian’s Cathedral in Perth on Saturday 20th April 2013.


It was a beautiful service during which the Primus, the Most Revd. David Chillingworth, Bishop of St Andrews, Dunkeld & Dunblane formally commissioned Jean to her role.  


The Rt Revd. Mark Strange, Bishop of Moray, Ross & Caithness preached. The Provost of St Ninian’s, the Dean of St Andrews, Dunkeld & Dunblane, the five Mothers’ Union Diocesan Presidents from Scotland and the Provincial President of York all took part in the service.


Music was provided by the organist Henry Neil and the “Blair Bells” led by Mary McGregor.


We hope to have a fuller report in due course.  You can get a flavour of the occasion by visiting our photo-gallery from the day by clicking here.

We are Created by God


Provincial training of facilitators for the MU discussion book, ‘We are Created by God’ , based on exploring our identity and relationships.

We now have the opportunity, in most dioceses in Scotland, of trained facilitators to help us discuss four different aspects of our identity and relationships.


As these issues are sensitive and very relevant in the present climate, it was recommended that we have a facilitator to guide us carefully through our discussions.


The four aspects that the book covers are marriage and cohabitation, divorce and further marriage, being single or widowed, and gay and lesbian sexuality. All of us fit into at least one of these categories at some point in our lives.


We may not have to deal with all of these issues personally. However, many of us will encounter them in our families, friendships and communities. People who have been through such discussions have found they give a spiritual understanding of relationships and have found the discussions really engaging and sometimes enlightening. We will be advertising the courses soon.
