Plaque un­veiled at Clachan ser­vice

The Arran Banner - - News -

A com­mem­o­ra­tive ser­vice at­tended by more than 50 peo­ple was en­joyed by wor­ship­pers of all faiths who met at the re­stored Clachan Church in Shisk­ine for the open-air event.

The an­nual event, or­gan­ised by St Mo­lios Church in Shisk­ine, saw the clergy from all denom­i­na­tions at­tend­ing the ser­vice, which was led by the Rev An­gus Adam­son, who read from the King James bible. Liz Dale read the les­son in Gaelic while El­iz­a­beth Wilkin­son played the harp and sang with her hus­band. Rev Ben­jamin van Rens­burg de­liv­ered the ser­mon and the bene­dic­tion was ren­dered by Fa­ther Noel Col­ford.

Dur­ing the ser­vice, a plaque was ded­i­cated to the mem­ory of Jack Murchie, one of the main in­sti­ga­tors of the ren­o­va­tion of the old kirk which was re­stored in 2012.

The ser­vice pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for wor- ship­pers to gather, not only for re­li­gious pur­poses, but also as a cel­e­bra­tion of Ar­ran’s her­itage in a church that dates back to druidic times.

Fa­ther Noel Col­ford, Liz Dale, Rev An­gus Adam­son and Rev Ben­jamin van Rens­burg held the open air ser­vice at the re­stored Clachan Church in Shisk­ine.
