Making more of our wonderful sanctuary, and church halls.
The space known as the ‘prayer area’ in our church is rarely used and indeed was cluttered with large items of furniture. So we thought to change and try things differently and enable folks to use this space and at the same time be within such wonderful surroundings.
The Communion table has been relocated back to the church halls site where it sat previously within the Kirkgate Church. The communion table is helping create a ‘quiet area’ within the Leask Hall where on occasion people who wish a quiet space and time to reflect can go.
The picture shows the space in our sanctuary being used to exhibit photos of old Leith. Some 60 members of the HMS Conway Association visited the Church and Trinity House on 27 May and took in the display. A Kirk Session meeting has also been held using this space. The other picture shows the Communion table sitting in the Leask Hall helping create the atmosphere for times of quietness and reflection.
Boys' Brigade - Halloween 2017
...and the Junior Section Boys enjoyed their fancy dress and dooking night for Halloween. The apples and dried nuts were all caught and eaten.
Miller in the Junior Section together with his Grandad grew this pumpkin and cut it out!
Junior Section 100th birthday
The Junior Section of The Boys’ Brigade is celebrating it’s 100th birthday this session. The 3 Boys in the photo are wearing the 3 changes of uniform across the 100 years. 50 years as the Life Boys until 1967 when the name changed to the JS and the hat changed from the sailor type hat to the forage cap. Then after 30 years or so hats were ‘done away with’ giving us today’s uniform. Most importantly the twin pillars on which we are based, of christian faith and discipline, remain unchanged over the 100 years.
Several ex members and ex leaders remain in the congregation. Mina Wilson was a leader in the 10th Leith Life Boys 70 years ago!
