Scottish College & Synod meet at HURC

September 20th, 2021 · Comments Off on Scottish College & Synod meet at HURC

This past weekend both the Scottish College and the National Synod of Scotland have met at Helensburgh URC. On Friday night the College held its annual service with guest preacher Rev Tom Wilson, Chair of the Scottish Area of the Congregational Federation and minister of Knightswood Congregational Church. This was a hybrid meeting with people online and gathering in person.

On Saturday the autumn Synod meeting was also a hybrid meeting. Worship was led by the HURC Choir and a group of six people who each shared a reflection on the different ways we celebrate and mark being part of a global community. In addition to the business of Synod there were presentations on Climate Change and on Anti Slavery.

A selection of photos of the two events have been posted on the Synod website:

This service was broadcast live via Zoom. Here is an unedited recording.

Please note in the first part of the service the microphone at the lectern was not active and there is a also a synch problem with audio and video due to testing new equipment. I will aim to resolve this for future such broadcasts.
