Summer services: The town centre churches - Abbotshall, Bennochy, Linktown and St Bryce - are coming together for worship throughout July. 2013 marks the 1450th anniversary of St Columba’s arrival on Iona, heralding the spread of Celtic Christianity across Scotland. In our worship we are focusing on the major themes of St Columba’s life. This Sunday we are meeting in St Bryce Kirk at 11.00 a.m. and the theme is MISSION.
