Last week those tidying up the Lauder churchyard met with representatives from Scottish Borders Council to discuss how the look of the churchyard might be improved. The Kirk Session will hear of the response from SBC when elders meet on Tuesday 15th September.

Guild President Christine Brotherston hosted in small groups all of the members of Lauder Guild so that they could view the new lectern, funded by the late Mary White, made by Ian Brotherston. Great Pastoral work Christine!! A photograph of the lectern will appear soon on this website.

Increasingly the God question has come under scrutiny with the view that religion is a fairy story for the weak minded. People are more likely to look to science for ultimate answers. Church of Scotland Moderator, the  Rt Rev Dr Martin Fair, is set to put the existence of God to the test through three x 90-minute Zoom sessions on Tuesdays 15th, 22nd and 29th September at 7.30pm. You can join in! To request registration details email office@graspingthenettle.org.
