Heart and Soul 2016. This event takes places on the Sunday of General Assembly Week. This year it is on 22nd May in Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh. The theme is “People of the Way” and will celebrate the life of the Church through its people, Biblical characters, saints and pilgrims. Entry is free and there are big stage acts and a new youth area for young people. Over 50 exhibitors and congregations will provide attractions and activities. The day will end with massed worship held at the Ross Bandstand, always an impressive event.
The next Moderator of the Presbytery of Angus will be Rev Barbara Ann Sweetin, minister of Forfar: East and Old. She takes over from Dougal Edwards at the June meeting of Presbytery.
Thanks to the effort of the Carnoustie Fairtrade Group, Carnoustie has been successful in renewing its Fairtrade Status for another two years until April 2018. All those on the Committee are members of local churches and thanks to everyone who keeps Fairtrade in the public eye. Anyone who is interested in helping the group can contact Matthew or Lyn whose contact details are to be found in the Church directory.
