The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, Rt. Rev. Dr. Angus Morrison has said he is hugely excited about his upcoming visit to Dunfermline.
The Moderator will be visiting Dunfermline Presbytery which covers all Church of Scotland congregations from Lochgelly in the East to Kincardine in the West. He will be in the Presbytery from Saturday 24th of October to Sunday the 1st of November during which time he will be visiting churches, industry, hospital and schools; going to see the construction of the new Forth Crossing and the work on the new Aircraft Carriers at Rosyth, visiting the Police College in Tulliallan, celebrating 50 years of Dalgety Bay and launching the 125th anniversary celebrations of Cowdenbeath becoming a burgh.
A keen football fan Dr Morrison will also be the guest of Cowdenbeath Football Club when they take on their great local rivals Dunfermline Athletic at Central Park on Saturday the 31st of October.
The range of visits is enormous. He will be visiting both the huge Amazon distribution centre in Dunfermline and the Scottish Woods sawmill in Oakley, a successful social enterprise. He will be attending a debate at Dunfermline High School on the motion “This house believes that employers should do more to benefit society” and will be hosting a round table discussion on “good and fair work” at the Carnegie Trust.
Rt Rev Dr Angus Morrison said “I am greatly looking forward to spending time in the Dunfermline Presbytery, meeting many people in church and community, and seeing first-hand some of the devoted work being undertaken as congregations reach out in their neighbourhood with the Good News of God’s love for all in Christ.”
