A New Congregation

Tomorrow is a notable first for me – when I visit what is in effect a new congregation in the diocese.

Last summer, our diocese joined in a partnership with St Paul’s and St George’s in Edinburgh to establish a church graft – now called All Souls Fife.  It is based in congregations at Inverkeithing, Burntisland and Aberdour.   Tomorrow morning we shall be in Inverkeithing High School.

It’s a sign of real promise that these three congregations have been about to embrace this change.  The Archbishop of Canterbury added his affirmation when he visited last October.

I expect that the music may be noisier than I am used to – the membership more diverse – the age profile younger.  

I’ll let you know how I get on!
