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.
Recent Past President of the Inner Wheel of Kirkcudbright, Gwen Shaw (centre) and ladies of the club handing over donations for £540 each to Stevie Carr Project Leader for the SCVS Quick Response Project and to Rev’d Stephen Hazlett on behalf of the Mission To Seafarers.
They bopped into the church … they bopped throughout the service …. they bopped out of the church. Visitors to the Kirkcudbright Jazz Festival mingling with our regulars – and a few friends from St Mary’s (you know who you are!) - enjoying Dave Donohue and his band playing at our 11 am service!
On Friday, 30th June at 6.30 pm the congregations from both Greyfriars and St Mary’s are warmly welcome to celebrate Choral Evensong together in Greyfriars, Kirkcudbright, followed by a Bring and Share Finger Buffet.

A woman living in Sidmouth in Devon and a member of the Anglican church has written to the Rector requesting links with Greyfriars. She is a church stained-glass window enthusiast and particularly interested in Kirkcudbright’s art connections and the whole artistic heritage of our town. Please contact the Rector for further details, if you’d like to make contact with her.
