Good morning, everyone

Fenwick Church invites everyone to attend a conventicle service in the churchyard at 3 p.m. on Sunday, 21 July.  A photo of last year’s service is attached.

Conventicle was the name given to secret worship services of late 17th century Covenanters in remote places on the moors because they did not agree with the form of religion imposed by the Government of their day.  Fenwick Church has more graves of Covenanters than any other Scottish church.  Each year a conventicle is held to commemorate the local Covenanter martyrs who lived and died defending their belief that Jesus is the Head of the Church in Scotland.

As we remember the Covenanters, let us also remember Christians of other dissenting minorities who were discriminated against throughout the centuries and the millions of Christians who are still persecuted, even to the point of death, across the world today.  May God hasten the day when people of good will can live together in peace and harmony.
