Dumfries Church Leaders and contacts 

In ordinary times I would be sorting out the final publicity for the Christian Aid Lenten Lunches but obviously, that is not possible this year. 

We are so looking forward to welcoming folks to events in the future. We know how important the regular Christian Aid events are in bringing people together as well as raising much-needed funds for Christian Aid. 

Christian Aid is now 75 years old and this year the Lent and Easter appeal is focused on looking forward as well as reflecting on the past. 

Here is a link to the details on the Christian Aid Website. This includes a prayer sheet, a copy of which is attached,  in case it is of use to you or your congregation in the current circumstances. 

Lent and Easter 2021 Appeal – Christian Aid

Please be in touch if I can help with material or ideas from Christian Aid or you have fundraising ideas you would like to explore. 

Very best wishes.

Every service held in St Johns involves the use of artistic expression spanning thousands of years of Church history. Some of the events we run however specifically seek to experiment with new forms of artistic expression and to embody the tradition we have received to express it in fresh and creative ways.

Examples of this have been using the whole building (rather than just the sanctuary) for worship, changing the seating arrangement and sit in a circle with the communion table at the center, collaboratively working on banners seeking out you tube clips and popular music and, well many more examples can be found on this page.
