Forfar Action of Churches Together held a successful service titled ‘Sing Forfar’s Praises’ in the East & Old Parish Church on Sunday night.
This was the churches’ way of kick-starting Forfar Gala Week and there were contributions from Spectrum Choir, the Lowson Dance & Praise group, local clergy, Salvation Army and church members.
The detailed themes were the baker and dairy trades in the town, past and present, and how a small community can have so much going for it, the diversity of shops and trades in Forfar, the employment and leisure pursuits the area offers, and how we should appreciate our good fortune in living here.
Pictured are the main participants - Major Jim McCluskey, the Rev. Karen Fenwick, the Rev. Barbara Ann Sweetin and the Rev. David Logan. The closing event of Gala Week is a FACT open-air service at Lochside Leisure Centre this Sunday from 4.30pm to which everyone is invited.
