The Church of Scotland’s Heart & Soul celebration takes place in Princes Street Gardens Edinburgh from 12:30pm on 20th May during the General Assembly. This is its 7th year and it is a wonderful afternoon, celebrating the life and work of the Church! Thousands attend and there is a festival atmosphere with music, talks and an opportunity to wander through the many ‘villages’ and hear the exciting things other churches are doing in their communities. From 2pm – 3pm Lily will be in the Path of Renewal tent sharing the work of Lamlash Church and she is looking for a few enthusiastic people to join her. Please pray for the General Assembly’s week of deliberations and the ongoing work of the Church of Scotland in every parish.
