Heart & Soul 2020 Online: Sunday 17th May
The Church of Scotland are delighted to announce a special 'Heart and Soul 2020' event will take place online on Sunday 17th May starting at 2pm - and lasting till around 4.20pm.
Although the current restrictions around Covid meant the event in Princes Street Gardens had to be cancelled, a number of the features planned could be transferred into an online format and will be available to view at www.churchofscotland.org.uk and live on the Facebook page fb.me/churchofscotland.
The event begins with a replay of the service of installation for the new Moderator, Rev Dr Martin Fair, then features a mix of worship, music (with a special piece led by Fischy Music) stories and interesting and topical 'In Conversation' guests. In one session, Hugh Pym will be in conversation with Professor Jason Leitch and Viv Dickinson from CrossReach discussing how they have been tackling Coronavirus and how their own faith has helped them. Very Rev Susan Brown will also be in conversation with Ross Greer MSP and Tara Shannon from CoSY discussing climate justice.
You can also follow the special service on 16th May in the Assembly Hall to install Rev Dr Martin Fair as Moderator of the General Assembly in the physical presence of only a few people. However, everyone can watch the service online at www.churchofscotland.org.uk
