At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income.

In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic.  The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thanks you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time

The dedication service for the new Glassary, Kilmartin and Ford Church in Kilmartin took place recently and proved to be a tremendous morning.

It was a memorable and uplifting experience for the congregation, who look forward to many happy years in their new place of worship.

They were joined by members of the linked parish of North Knapdale and other friends.

Reverend Dr Roderick Campbell, Moderator of Argyll Presbytery, conducted the service in the traditional way by knocking on the door and being welcomed inside.

Greetings from the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, Reverend Susan Brown, were read out by Session Clerk Linda Tighe who, along with other elders, helped Reverend Campbell in a short service of communion, shared with everyone to end the service.

A lunch provided afterwards was enjoyed by everyone present.

‘We are feeling at home in our new place of worship,’ said Linda Tighe, ‘and we are enjoying being able to work more closely with the community around us by enabling them to use our building for meetings and training events. This is just the start of a new era for our congregation.’
