Heart and Soul 2014 takes place on May 18th, 2014 and takes as its theme, “Hands Across The World” which aims to celebrate the life of the church through the lens of its international heritage, relationships and partners. The 2014 event comprises three distinct areas: a varied event and performance programme, a rich seam of congregations showcasing their life, work and witness, and lastly a lively avenue of exhibitors with information and resources focussed on helping congregations in their local and international situations.
There’s a special focus on activities for children and young people including a dedicated marquee which will provide a great range of things to do, or just ‘a place to be’.
A highlight of the event in recent years has been the massed closing worship service with over 2,000 folks joining together to worship and praise God in the open air, in the centre of the capital.
Members from Riverside have been to Heart & Soul each year, and last year a bus was organised to take a joint group from both Riverside and The West Kirk.
The next ecumenical service at Dumbarton Castle will celebrate St Patrick on Saturday 15th March at 12 noon. Tickets are limited – contact Tim Rhead, or the church office, for further details.
