Summer Garden Event 2009

This year the congregation celebrated Harvest Festival in the usual manner with a fragrant and colourful service which included favourite hymns and readings.

Sunday 27th September was an eleven o’clock service which provided us with the excellent opportunity to hold a harvest lunch after worship. A choice of soups, rolls, cheeses and chutneys followed by fruit crumble catered for everyone’s needs, and regular members and visitors alike were able to enjoy a convivial and satisfying occasion.

Coupled with the amount raised from our Sale of Produce, profits from the day amounted to £80, donated to our charity this year: The British Red Cross. The Minister expressed grateful thanks to everyone who had contributed to the sale and the lunch.

Burns Lunch 2010

On Sunday 24th January the congregation marked the birthday of Scotland’s national poet (25thJanuary 1759) by holding a haggis lunch after the service. The minister led worship on the theme of Robert Burns life and work, and Morag Jones sang ‘My love is like a red, red rose’.

The feast began prior to lunch with canapés of smoked salmon and cream cheese and a wee dram for a few! Afterwards some 18 of us sat down for a lunch of haggis (with veggie haggis as an alternative option) ‘tatties and neaps’ served in the traditional manner by Morag, followed by a delicious pudding of ’Cranach’ a traditional delicacy accompanied by shortbread biscuits. Although the Chapel’s Scottish connections are limited to the families of Morag and Charles McIntosh and the minister’s parentage, this was an excellent opportunity to celebrate the achievements of a poet whose greatsouled egalitarianism promoted humanity’s dignity and worth, and who advocated a free-thinking approach to life and salvation over the cant and dogma of creeds.

It was an extremely enjoyable occasion with a real Scottish flavour, greatly appreciated by all. Monies raised from the lunch and donations made by the congregation totalled £175 for the Red Cross response to the Haiti earthquake appeal.
