WALL HANGING – SATURDAY 25 FEBRUARY 2017
Work is progressing well on the Wall Hanging. Many parts of the design are now coming together – but there’s still a long way to go!
‘SEEING THE WOOD FOR THE TREES’ MAKING SENSE OF MAPPING – SATURDAY 7 MAY 2016
A Diocesan MAPping Day was organised by the Missional Leadership Development Group at St Ninian’s Troon on Saturday 7 May. The contributors for the day gave a varied and honest picture of MAPping in the diocese. The event started with David Cook from St Michael’s Helensburgh, followed by Rachel Hill from Christ Church Lanark.
Gill Young convenor of the Provincial Mission Planning Network encouraged everyone to share encouraging stories and Bishop Gregor spoke of his positive experiences of conducting MAP reviews. Marilyn Pope from St Oswald’s Maybole gave the final presentation including material from all 4 years of their MAP.
There was a high level of engagement with honest and helpful discussions. The venue was very central and a delicious soup and sandwich lunch provided.

PREPARING LEAF PACKS FOR LOCAL SCHOOLS – SATURDAY 16 APRIL
On Saturday morning work centred around preparing packs to go into six local schools to enable each child to contribute in some way to the wall hanging. This will depend on their age and ability, with younger ones hopefully printing leaves and older ones carry out some basic sewing.
