This evening in the village.

Church of Scotland
LISTEN - the Moderator of the General Assembly, Rt Rev Susan Brown, tells BBC Radio Scotland why she followed the Church of England’s lead to encourage Kirk congregations to toll their bells this evening at 7pm in solidarity with the people of France following the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. It is a symbol of French culture and national identity.

On this Maundy Thursday, congregations will also be reflecting on all those who have been affected by disasters across the UK and wider world and offering prayerful support.
