A well-attended service was held in Greyfriars on 2nd July to celebrate Sea Sunday. Officers and Cadets of the Stewartry Unit (TS John Paul Jones, Kirkcudbright), led by piper Jim White, marched to church in their smart naval uniforms and participated in the service.
Greyfriars’ member, Eric, has been knitting Easter chicks over the last few weeks. It helps pass the time in the cold and grey of winter while waiting for Spring to arrive. His mum taught him to knit as a young boy. He would sit on the doorstep and knit with her and other young children and has been knitting ever since.
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity was marked in January by an evening service in Greyfriars, followed by coffee and chat, to which members of all churches were invited. The theme this year was ‘Crossing Barriers’ and led by the church in Germany.
