The annual General Assembly of the Church of Scotland took place from 16th to 22nd May 2015 at the Assembly Halls in Edinburgh, where around 730 commissioners gathered from churches throughout Scotland and beyond. As always, there was intense debate on matters of social and national interest as well as Church policy and governance, all under the watchful eye of new Moderator Right Dr Rev Angus Morrison. There were lighter moments too, with Commissioners being introduced to Scott, the Hearing Dog For Deaf People of the Kirk's first born deaf Minister, Rev Mary Whittaker.
The congregation of Broom Parish Church has been fundraising since the start of 2015 for the Toilet Twinning Project, which provides clean water, sanitation and hygiene education in some of the world's most deprived areas. Members of all ages have been encouraged to deposit small change (literally spending a penny!) in a special talking toilet. With over £600 raised so far, Rev Jim Boag and his congregation have twinned their church loos with school toilet blocks in Chad and Uganda, and plan to twin with more.
