The Vestry of St Margaret’s are delighted to announce that Bishop Ian has agreed to the appointment of the Rev Dr Michael Paterson as their part-time stipendiary priest. Bishop Ian will license Michael to the charge on Thursday 18 November (in the week of St Margaret’s Day) at 6.30pm and Michael’s appointment will begin on that date. Due to social distancing restrictions, regrettably the numbers attending the service will be limited, but all members of St Margaret’s and Rosyth Methodist Church have already been invited to attend.

This is an exciting time for St Margaret’s as they start out on their journey as an independent church and also look to strengthen their ties with us, through furthering our ecumenical partnership.

Interfaith Scotland have sent us this message:

The future of our planet hangs in the balance. Interfaith Scotland and Interfaith Glasgow, with the Scottish Religious Leaders’ Forum, invite you – at this critical moment – to join people of all religions and none in expressing your love for life on earth and the shared hope that COP26 will commit leaders to the actions necessary to save it!

Join the vigil

Witness religious leaders and faith community members coming together in Glasgow’s main square, united in a common commitment to climate justice, to mark the beginning of COP26 and to launch Scottish Interfaith Week, which shares the COP26 theme: ‘Together for Our Planet’. This unique prayer and meditation vigil will bring together people of all backgrounds in Glasgow and – via a livestream – around the world, in a powerful, symbolic act of unity and solidarity for our planet. To join the vigil in person, don’t forget to book your ticket on Eventbrite.

Sign the Declaration

We have taken the step of using the organisation change.org to offer everyone the opportunity to sign ‘The Glasgow Multi-Faith Declaration for COP26‘. This declaration has been carefully crafted by representatives of the Scottish Religious Leaders’ Forum along with faith representatives from the United Kingdom. It has initially been signed by a widely diverse range of Scottish and UK wide religious communities and signatures are now being sought from faith communities, local interfaith groups and people of faith from across the UK and indeed globally. We hope to garner thousands of signatures to the petition to present at the COP26 Climate Summit and if you feel you are able to sign it, please do include which faith you belong to (if appropriate).

Even though the pandemic is not over (sadly), we at Rosyth are beginning to emerge out of the restrictions that Covid presented us with. Until recently the building has been used sparingly in order to keep everyone as safe as possible. Now, in order to get the building more user-ready, you are invited to lend a hand to do an “All Church Autumn Clean“ on the morning of Saturday 9 October from 9:00am until about 12:30pm. Hopefully many hands will make light work.

As well as cleaning/tidying the rooms, it is important that all kitchen items and facilities in particular are thoroughly cleaned, in the hope that soon we may be able to resume refreshments following services. We will also look at how much equipment/stuff we have and decide what we need to keep and what can be recycled elsewhere.

Even though we will need to keep our masks on, we hope that you will be able to help, and will enjoy the fellowship as you do so. Come as soon as you can (before 11:45am!) and help for as long as you are able. So the Property Committee can plan and allocate the work, please email Eddie at ku.gro.tsidohtemhtysornull@retsinim ASAP to let him know when on the day you’ll be available.
