Church honours heroes
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.”
