August and September
Sunday 12th August – Service of Dedication for the new church cross + gifted and crafted by Neville Robbins outside Fort Augustus Parish Church Hall.
A public ceremony took place on Sunday 12th August following morning worship. A fascinating history of the cross and the three types of wood used in its making was given by Sonia Robbins. This links in well with the tri-une belief of all Christians as God being Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Rev Anthony Jones received the cross on behalf of the congregation with thanks and made a special prayer of dedication when the cross was blessed. The beautiful cross which may be seen by all visitors to the church and users of the hall is located on the front of the church close to the door. There is a phosperescent coating which provides a light for all to see in the darkness reminding the onlooker that Jesus Christ himself is the ‘light of the world’.
‘Clock turnabout’ – remember church service times change on Sunday 2nd September!
