The Moderator will lead a service to mark the birthday of the Christian Church with contributions from many different places. Like the disciples on that first Pentecost here is the invitation to step confidently into whatever the future holds.  We would like to invite you to make this the service for your congregation on that Sunday so that as much of the Church of Scotland as possible will be gathered in fellowship and praise.

Heart and Soul 2020 - Sunday, 17th May - 2.00pm - 4.20pm

I am certain that by now you will have heard of the very special service to install Rev Dr Martin Fair as Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland on Saturday 16th May at 11:00am. This will be a very special moment in the history of our Church, and will also be an event where we can be assured of hope and inspiration in these challenging times. We're delighted to announce, as part of that ‘Big Weekend' for the Church of Scotland, a special ‘Heart and Soul 2020' event will take place (online) on 17th May 2020. The current crisis has meant that the original event, scheduled to have taken place in Princes Street Gardens on that day, has had to be cancelled. However, a number of features from the event in Princes Street Gardens can be transferred into an online format, and we're going to screen an abridged ‘Heart and Soul' at 2.00pm on 17th May - when the original event would have taken place. The programme will run until about 4.20pm. A recording of the event will be available soon afterwards. You will be able to watch the event live on the Church of Scotland website (www.churchofscotland.org.uk) and live on the Facebook page (fb.me/churchofscotland). Hosted by our usual presenters, Rev Ken Froude, Seonaid Knox and Rev Justin Taylor, the event begins with a replay of the service of installation for the new Moderator, Rev Martin Fair. Without giving too much away, the event features a mix of worship, music, stories and some exciting ‘In Conversation' guests. Heart and Soul regulars ‘Fischy Music' will lead a special segment for all ages, and we hope that you'll join in all the actions from home! Spread throughout the afternoon will be some very special conversations: Hugh Pym will be in conversation with Prof Jason Leitch and Viv Dickenson from CrossReach, discussing how they have all been tackling Coronavirus and also how their own faith has helped them. Very Rev Susan Brown will be in conversation with Ross Greer MSP and Tara Shannon from CoSY discussing climate justice. Prison Chaplain Anne Stewart will be in conversation with Hospital Chaplain Mark Evans talking about chaplaincy as a career and the impact of Coronavirus in their places of work. No Heart and Soul would be complete without some hearty singing, and we've chosen some highlights from the archive over the last ten years of Heart and Soul, the Guild Big Sing and the General Assembly to round things off.
