GALLOWAY REGIONAL ASCENSION DAY SERVICE

Thursday 26th May, 6pm Sung Eucharist. We are delighted to be hosting the Galloway Regional Council’s Ascension Day service this year and we hope that friends from all the charges in the region will be able to join us. The St Margaret’s Guild will be serving tea or coffee from 5pm with the service starting at 6pm. Canon Barry Gilbert will be presiding and Revd John McHale will be preaching. Following the service, there will be a short business meeting just for the Regional Council (although anyone is welcome to stay). See under Accessibility for directions and information on parking.

BALLIOL SINGERS CONCERT

Postponed from April 2020 due to the pandemic, we were delighted to welcome the Balliol Singers back to St Margaret’s on Tuesday 3rd May. We were entertained to a terrific evening of music and readings, from the Renaissance to today, called Paella and Pasta: musical nourishment from Spain and Italy. It was wonderful to hear live music again!

PLANT AND BAKE SALE

After a three year Covid-hiatus, the annual St Margaret’s Guild Plant and Cake sale took place on Saturday 7th May. A most successful morning with £620 raised for Dumfries & Galloway Blood Bikes, and a further £150 raised to go to the Ukrainian Appeal (via UNHCR). Many thanks to the St Margaret’s Guild for organising the event and to all those who contributed and supported.
