St Ninian’s Easter Day celebrations included the Holy Baptism of Anna Jean Seenan, pictured here with her Mum and Dad, Gill and Chris and the Rector. St Ninian’s Kids made Easter baskets and the wooden cross, made from the old Christmas tree, was transformed to represent the glory of the risen Christ.
St Ninian’s Patronal Festival 2015On the weekend of 19/20 September our choir welcomed their friends from Gothenburg. This friendship has been developing over the last 9 years with the two choirs making exchange visits to each other, with it being our turn to host the Swedes this year. For once we were able to offer our visitors some decent weather! On Saturday evening a Ceilidh was held in the church hall to give our visitors a taste of Scottish entertainment.On Sunday morning the joint choirs made a joyful sound throughout the Sung Eucharist, concluding with a piece that has become their signature tune “The Music’s Always There”, by John Rutter, which produced enthusiastic applause from the congregation.

A happy day.No sooner had we welcomed Hew into the St Ninian’s family but it was the turn of the Hunge family on Sunday 21st when Mauton, Semande and Sewedo were baptised and Mauton was confirmed by Bishiop Gregor.
Easter Sunday was a happy celebration of the ressurection of Jesus. The church was beautifully decorated for the lighting of the New Fire with the pascal candle. On Passion Sunday evening we held the first of our Taize services which was well attended and very moving.
