News and events


The Diocesan Young people’s group is visiting St Mary’s for a sleepover on Saturday 23rd April. they will be encouraged to draw near to God in prayer and conversation and develop a stronger relationship with the LORD. They will also lead in the service the next day. Lesley-ann is very grateful for the rest from sermon writing.

It happened, it was brilliant and we want them back as soon as possible:-)

Good Friday – Easter Sunday 

  • WOW! Good Friday was very good indeed. Rev Lesley-ann carried the cross all around Birnam and Dunkeld to shouts and car horns of joy and good wishes from residents and holidaymakers alike. She was slightly bruised from the 2-hour mission! but as she says ” It wasn’t a full-size cross and my burden was light compared to our LORD’s. A warm bath and Arnica sorted her out.
  • Sweets were given out on Holy Saturday morning. 200 happy recipients were blessed and handed chocolate by our volunteers Irene, Diane, and Lesley-ann. Well done you three.
  • Rev Ian Atkinson was delighted to be wheeled right up to the church door on Easter Sunday. Our newly laid pathway is the last part of our disabled access path to be completed. When the ‘rest and be thankful’ garden is finished the whole thing will be blessed, hopefully by Rev Ian, who kept the church grounds looking splendid for many years.
