20 October 2019 –
The Diocesan Gathering 2019 will take place on Sunday 20 October and takes on a new format with people from around the Diocese invited to gather for the afternoon at St Ninian’s Cathedral, Perth, and finish with an Evensong at 4.30pm to celebrate Bishop Ian’s first year in the Diocese. Churches are invited to display something from their own activities.
Arrivals are from 1.30pm. We will be welcomed at 2.30pm by Bishop Ian and then get short tasters of a variety of projects and experiences that are being offered in our churches around the Diocese. The topics include:young and old together;finding new resources; inspiring worship;community engagement; and lay ministries.Booking is not required and we will rotate through the topics in turn.
We will also learn new music for Evensong - to be sung at 4.30pm and hear Bishop Ian and a guest in conversation on a topical subject. And we will make room for tea and scones!
