Over the last 18 months, during the Covid-19 pandemic, everyone has faced unprecedented times.

For many people, that has meant funerals have not been the sort of occasions they were used to.

New rituals have been developed, such as lining the streets to show respect for those who have died, but there have not been many opportunities to pause and reflect in the familiar ways.

So the South Kintyre Team Ministry is opening Campbeltown’s Highland Parish Church on the evening of November 2, for a time to remember, reflect and, if people want, to pray.

The evening will begin with a short service, and the church will then be open for anyone to come and light a candle, sit and remember.

‘Everyone is welcome to call in and stay for as long or as short a time as they wish,’ said Reverend Steve Fulcher.

The church will be open from 6.30pm until 8pm.
