Long service awards


We celebrate communion on Sunday 11th March at 11.00am. All are indeed welcome.

During this service we will present long service certificates to members of the Kirk Session and Young Church team. This is a major occasion for the people who have served this and other churches over the past decades.

Our elders receiving certificates have 260 years service between them! Young Church leaders have 120 years between them.

That’s 380 years service in one day to celebrate!
