Stewart Sherriffs sponsored cycle ride.
Many thanks to all that have sent messages, Prayers and of course money support for Christian Aid
The Event went without any hitches, swerves or punctures. The chain stayed on and the kilt behaved itself. I started out at Dalwhinnie rail station at about 06:45 and finished at Logierait church with a couple of supporters cheering me over the finish line at about 10:45. see below
Updates to this Event:- As restrictions have been relaxed a little, I will be starting the ride from
Dalwhinnie rail station to Logierait Parish Church – this will add 5 miles on to the ride.
the date will also change to the 24th April 2021 as I will probably require the Sunday to recover
25th April 2021
for Christian Aid
See the information is below.
This is a terrific challenge for Stewart who well deserves our support. If you feel able to, please help by sponsoring him.
As you know normally, GLS Church support Christian Aid during their annual appeal in May.
This year with many things being different, we are being invited and encouraged by the Moderator of the Church of Scotland, Rev Dr Martin Fair, to support Christian Aid through the Kiltwalk event. He himself will take part. This does seem a good way to raise money for Christian Aid.
This event is due to take place over the weekend of 25-26th April and the Moderator hopes that we can support this in some way. This year the Kiltwalk can take place in a number of different ways- you do not have to walk a specific route or distance.
At GLS our own Stewart Sherriffs is planning to take part in this (for Christian Aid) and will undertake a cycle ride –
from the upper limits of the council boundary (given that the restrictions we currently have, will still be in place over that weekend) – from Layby 81 to the North on the A9, finishing at Logierait Church. Stewart plans on cycling this in a kilt- not something he has done before! If you would like to sponsor him, then, thank you, and please follow the link below to make a donation.
Every pound raised for Christian Aid will be topped up by 50% from the Hunter Foundation.
If however, you would prefer to do something yourself and have your own Justgiving page for Christian Aid through the Kiltwalk event, then simply follow the link below for further details. You could run, walk, jump, or whatever you wish as an individual or as a family or team.

Sponsoring Warm Connections
Later this month we have a team taking part in the KiltWalk to raise money for Warm Connections. The KiltWalk is virtual again this year, and so far none of our team are walking… we have paddlers, a baker/vegetable grower, a photographer and an artist. If you would like to find out more, please contact Anna Sibbald (firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 07759 404980).
‘Warm Connections’ is a new home energy advice service, which is part of Aberfeldy Parish Church.
Christian aid Week
10th May 2020 – 16th May 2020
Earth Hour 2020 with GLS Church and Sunday Club
Our church normally supports this annual event, acknowledging the desire for God’s world to be valued and protected. Please help us recognise this effort by taking part in the Lights Out Event if you can. Details are below
SATURDAY28TH MARCH 2020
8:30 – 9:30PM
Join millions for the global lights out event and be part of the generation who are choosing to fight for our world.
More than a symbolic event, Earth Hour is a global environmental movement to stop the destruction of nature.
It’s a great way to connect with people around the world and there are so many ways to take part at home.
At 8.30pm on 28 March, take an hour to switch off your lights in solidarity with people worldwide.
For more information link to their website:
The Earth Hour organisers have included a statement in relation to: Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The Wellbeing and health of our supporters and staff is our top priority.
Following latest advice from Government, we are no longer organising public events for Earth Hour and are encouraging communities instead to find ways to take part online and at home.
National day of prayer
This Sunday (22nd) there will be an inter-denominational ‘National Day of Prayer’. All Christians are asked to light a candle in a window at 7.00pm (observing due safety precautions) and to pray for the current situation.
There will also be a link added to our page and website for a prerecorded service for our linkage (and anyone else that would like to watch it) for this Sunday’s service. It is planned to put one up each week so that we can still take part in a service.
A special prayer for “National Day of Prayer” issued by the Church of Scotland is presented below:
For all that is good in life,
For the love of family and friends, thank you,
For the kindness of good neighbour and Samaritan stranger, thank you.
May those who are vulnerable, hungry or homeless, experience support,
May those who are sick, know healing,
May those who are anxious or bereaved, sense comfort.
Bless and guide political leaders and decision-makers, with wisdom,
Bless and guide health workers and key workers, with strength and well-being, Bless and guide each one of us, as we adapt to a new way of living.
And may the light shining from our windows,
across road and wynd, glen and ben, kyle and isle,
be reflected in our hearts and hands and hopes.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
