Christmas @ Ocean Terminal. As last year, a Christmas Prayer Tree was placed in Ocean Terminal, under the Gap sign on the ground floor, and was well used. For our 2011 Christmas card (designed by a pupil from Lorne Primary School) click on the link.

Pause for Peace @ Ocean Terminal
Our short act of remembrance in Ocean Terminal for the 10th anniversary of 9/11 was attended by 40-50 people, and included a minute’s silence in the whole mall. We remembered all victims of terrorism and those working for peace. Thanks to the Ocean Terminal management and staff for their help in arranging this. For the order of service, click on the link.

Leith Churches Together held their Annual General Meeting on 8th March 2011 at the Leith Acorn Centre YMCA. Guest speakers Helen Hood and Rev Mitchell Bunting shared some of their experiences from the Edinburgh 2010 Conference, which celebrated the centenary of the Edinburgh 1910 World Missionary Conference. They left us with some material inspiration in the shape of an ‘Edinburgh 2010’ umbrella, and stones from Iona, brought to Edinburgh for the conference. Many thanks to both for a great evening, and to the ‘Acorn’ for hosting us.
Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2011. In company with churches around the world, we came together for joint worship to mark the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, on 18th January. Our service was hosted this year by St Mary’s Star of the Sea Roman Catholic Church. Many thanks to all who helped to organise the service – the first WPCU service for some years – and refreshments afterwards. It was good to see both old friends and new faces..
