Advent 2018 Celebration

We hosted our final meeting of 2018 on Tuesday 18th December with over 50 invited guests, members from Motherwell and Wishaw, and friends; to hear a very informative talk from John Brown DL Deputy Lieutenant of Lanarkshire.


The evening commenced with a mulled wine reception with home-made pies. Opening introductions and prayers were led by Katharine Kilgour branch leader. We sang two carols with an Advent theme accompanied at the organ by Mrs Betty Sargent of Holy Trinity. The carol ‘Long Ago’ was also accompanied on the flute by Susan Tian from Christ Church Lanark.


In his talk Mr Brown described many aspects of his duties as a deputy lieutenant especially where the lieutenancy provides the particular link between Her Majesty the Queen and the local community in so many positive ways. After discussion and questions everyone was invited to refreshments.


Apologies were received from Active Schools North Lanarkshire and Mothers’ Union officials Jill Cameron, Jean Richardson and Elizabeth Benton. We were delighted to be joined by community partners and organisations including local councillors Meghan Gallacher and Paul Kelly with representatives from Godly Play Scotland, Voluntary Action North Lanarkshire, NL Carers Together, and The Joe Wilson Table Tennis Club. Paul Hindle, MU Worldwide Trustee elect, based in Lenzie, was present, as well as ecumenical guests from local churches including St. Mary’s, Avon Street and Dalziel St. Andrew’s.


Katharine gave the vote of thanks. The Rector commented that the involvement of groups from across the community provides for increasing understanding of common values where the needs of people can be met by mutual effort, support and learning together.


There are more pictures from the event on Holy Trinity’s Facebook page.
