Greetings from the Dumfries Fairtrade group, 

We are pleased to pass on details of Fairtrade Fortnight for this year in case this is of use to you and your congregations. 

The Fairtrade Foundation has published an order of service which is available as a video recording or a printed version. Two of the hymns are available as separate files. All of the files are freely available at this link. The recording lasts 25 minutes and the sermon reflects on how Fairtrade fits into the wider concerns for Justice in our world.  

Do contact us if you have difficulty accessing. 


With Best Wishes 

Rosemary Buwert

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.
