Church hon­ours heroes

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Rachel Clark

A church in Kin­ross has been mark­ing the cen­te­nary of the Ar­mistice with a num­ber of events.

Kin­ross Par­ish Church has been paus­ing to re­mem­ber those who have given their lives in times of war and con­flict, ahead of Re­mem­brance Sun­day.

Two con­gre­ga­tional pipers will kick off the ac­tiv­i­ties on Sun­day, Novem­ber 11 by play­ing at 6am, as will hap­pen through­out the coun­try.

The united all-age re­mem­brance ser­vice will be held in the church at 10am, fol­lowed by the Act of Re­mem­brance at the town’s war me­mo­rial at 10.55am.

The church’s own morn­ing wor­ship ser­vice will fol­low at 11.15am and a spe­cial re­flec­tive ser­vice will be staged at 6pm, and will in­clude a ren­di­tion of ‘The Last Post’ and the ring­ing of the church bells.

Bells in the church will be rung at the same time as other churches through­out the coun­try as part of the na­tional com­mem­o­ra­tions of the Ar­mistice.

Gor­don Mc­Far­lane from the church of­fice said: “From now un­til Novem­ber 16 the church’s gar­den is host­ing the gar­den of re­mem­brance for Kin­ross-shire with a cross for ev­ery one from the county who died.

“‘Here but not here’ sil­hou­ettes have been sited in the gar­den and church and peo­ple from the church’s Cross­fire group have in­stalled oth­ers through­out the town.

“An ex­hi­bi­tion has been in­stalled within the church by Kin­ross Mu­seum about the young men from the town who died in the war, and can be viewed Mon­day to Fri­day, 10am un­til noon un­til Novem­ber 16.”
