Rector appointed a Canon of St Mary's Cathedral, Glasgow

Bishop Kevin has just announced that our Rector Rev Stephen Hazlett has been appointed a Canon of St. Mary’s Cathedral Glasgow, largely to reflect on his extra work with vacant churches in the Galloway Region of the diocese of Glasgow.  Congratulations to Stephen - this refelects well on Greyfrairs and St. Mary’s and his “other” churches in Challoch, Stranraer, and Portpatrick and certainly does not mean he is moving to Glasgow but that the Galloway region will now have a stronger voice in the diocese and cathedral.

Scottish Episcopal church services online

Many Scottish Episcopal Church congregations are providing weekly online worship. The list is arranged diocese-by-diocese in alphabetical order, and provides the name of each church, a link to the broadcast platform, and the church’s website address.  The collated information is not exhaustive and is subject to variation in what is a fluid situation.

Aberlour Children's Charity Petition

Aberlour Children’s Charity is supported by our churches, and is this year’s diocesan Lent appeal.

They are calling for the Scottish Government to double the Scottish Child Payment to £20 on a permanent basis.  To achieve this would be a massive benefit to many struggling families, given the growing levels of poverty in Scotland.

If you would like to sign the petition, it is available on their website:  www.aberlour.org.uk/petition

The SEC’s support of Aberlour’s’ work in the past has been very much appreciated.
