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.’
