Ardgour with Strontian with Morvern

Posted by dpcof on January 16, 2011

This morning I announced to the congregation that I have accepted the invitation to preach as sole nominee for the vacant charge of Ardgour linked with Strontian linked with Morvern on the Ardnamurchan peninsula.  I will preach on 30th January.  Details are on the www.ourchurches.org website – have a look at the “Notices and Events” tab.  Thank you for all the kind thoughts and good wishes expressed today.  The thought of moving from Dalgety brings mixed feelings – yet there is a clear sense of rightness in the move to new challenges and opportunities…  more details after the 30th..

Mary’s Meals at Ekwendeni, Malawi

Posted by dpcof on July 19, 2010

On the recent visit to our partner church at Engcongolweni, Robin, Nan and I were staying at Ekwendeni, 6 kilometres away.  At Ekwendeni, Nicholas Chihana is the Headteacher at the Primary School.  Nicholas was one of the group who visited Dalgety Bay last Autumn.  The school and community there is supported by Mary’s Meals – a project of Scottish International Relief. SIR has a charity shop in Inverkeithing which has been involved in the project in Ekwendeni.  By providing “school meals” attendance and therefore education levels have noticeable increased. You can read more about Mary’s Meals at: www.marysmeals.org – just £6.15 can feed a child for a year!

The New Manse

Posted by dpcof on June 14, 2010


The work on the manse at Engcongolweni is progressing well.  The minister, the Rev Peter Mhlanga and his family could move in by the end of August – subject to funds being available to pay the contractors.  We will have final figures in the next few days
