    Moderator leads worship in Ardoch

    Ardoch, 25 Apr 2021 at 11:00am.

    As lockdown restrictions ease, the Presbytery of Perth - the Kirk’s local governing body for much of Perth and Kinross - is preparing to receive a visit from the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Right Revd Dr Martin Fair.

    Dr Fair will lead live-streamed worship (watch here) from Ardoch Parish Church in Braco on Sunday 25th April in celebration of the 240th anniversary of the present church building, and throughout the week following he will meet on-line at different points ministers, elders, office-bearers and others representing the 35 congregations that together comprise the presbytery.

    The Revd Graham Crawford, minister at Kinnoull Church in Perth and Convener of the planning group, highlighted the extent to which preparations had had to take into account pandemic restrictions. “We had planned a full programme for the Moderator’s visit,” he said, “but much of it had to be curtailed and other parts transferred on-line. We are looking forward, though, to the events that have been scheduled and extend an open invitation to everyone to join us on the Thursday evening for what will be a thought-provoking set of conversations and discussions on some very important matters.”

    The easing of restrictions will allow the Moderator to visit Perth in person for the latter events in the programme, with a restriction on numbers and maintaining social distancing. It is expected that Dr Fair will accompany Street Pastors on the Friday evening and lead a Prayer Walk to the top of Kinnoull Hill on Saturday 1st May. The Moderator will conclude his visit to the presbytery by participating in the live- streamed worship from the North Church, Mill Street, Perth on Sunday 2nd May.

    (Dr Fair is presently the minister at St Andrew’s Church in Arbroath, remaining in post as Moderator until the 2021 General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, which meets in Edinburgh from Saturday 22nd May.)
