Church is packed to hear uplifting service from church leader

Over 100 people filled Canonbie United Parish Church on Sunday to welcome Rev Sally Foster-Fulton, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. During her visit, Sally presented long service certificates to 6 members of Langholm Church Choir. She preached on invitation from the congregation to mark the 200th birthday of the church building in Canonbie. Members of Liddesdale and Langholm churches joined the Canonbie congregation to mark the occasion which was followed by lunch in the church.

Sally is taking a year’s sabbatical from her role as head of Christian Aid in Scotland to serve as the Kirk’s ambassador at home and abroad. She was formally appointed Moderator in May 2023 at the General Assembly in Edinburgh,

On entering the church building that morning, Sally said she immediately felt the welcome from the surroundings inside. “You’ve worked hard to provide a flexible place that can used by you and your community. Making changes to a church that has stood here for 200 years could not have been easy”.
