Much has been happening in the parish - our best-ever Jumble Sale and Community Cafe, which raised well over a thousand pounds; an impromptu Lenten car blessing; some heavy snowfall enhancing the beauty of the church; celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the Guild of All Souls, our parish patron; and most recently, our annual Lent Study Day on Pilgrimage with 'medieval pilgrim' Michael Brown. Many thanks to him and all those who turned up to hear such an interesting presentation.

We Hae Meat
Hot on the heels of India Republic Day came our parish Burnstide Celebration. Many thanks to those who organised and ran the event and to those who prepared our meal - haggis, tatties and neeps, and clootie dumpling to follow. Great fun was had, wee drams were much in evidence, and the vicar was presented with a bottle... of Irn-Bru!
