Hi Here is HT’s contribution for this week: It can’t have escaped anyone’s notice that autumn has arrived and with it the churches’ celebrations of Harvest Festival.

Sunday 9 August 2015

How wonderful it was to share with our brothers and sisters in Christ here in Cowal at an Ecumenical Songs of Praise in the High Kirk. A packed church meant the sing was uplifting and a true celebration of the end of the Flower Festival. At the end we shared fellowship over a cup of […]
