General Meeting & Service 2011

The Mothers’ Union has had a very successful General Meeting in Edinburgh this year.  On the previous evening, Wednesday 8th June 2011, we here in the Province of Scotland welcomed around 1500 visitors to services at St Mary’s Scottish Episcopal Cathedral and St John’s Scottish Episcopal Church.  The Cathedral service was led by the Bishop of Edinburgh, the Rt Revd Brian Smith and the preacher was the Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Most Revd David Chillingworth, Bishop of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane.


Above is a picture of the opening procession of banners at the Cathedral.  The video of the Primus’s sermon is now available below.



The text of the sermon is available as a pdf file by clicking here and as an MSWord file here.  Bishop David’s blog is at

Meantime, the Rt Rev Dr Robert (Bob) Gillies, Bishop of Aberdeen, delivered the sermon at St John’s where around 300 of our visitors gathered.  Angela Sibley, Diocesan President for Edinburgh (below) was among the worshippers.
