  • Factsheet for Sunday 1st July

    Sally Magnusson introduces hymns and songs from Dunblane Cathedral.

  • INTERVIEWEES

    Ruth Burgess is a member of Dunblane Cathedral congregation. She is also a member of the Iona Community, and it was while working on the island’s Abbey that she began to write liturgies for the many and varied activities of the community there. She was seen with the Wright family, for whom she wrote a liturgy to celebrate adoption, and in the Cathedral, where she has written liturgies for visitors to help them interpret and respond to what they see.

    Nick Price was Professor of Biochemistry at Stirling University. Now retired, he is training for lay readership in the Scottish Episcopal Church. He spoke of how he and his family had come to terms with the death of his daughter Rebekah, not least when they realized after her death the significant influence her faith had been on many of her friends and colleagues.

  • FEATURES

    Queen Victoria School is the only boarding school run by the MoD exclusively for children of the military. It allows children who would otherwise have to attend many different schools when their parents moved around the world to have a stable education. It is non fee paying. Pupils are admitted from age 11. It was built on land donated by a local landowner with funds raised by all serving soldiers who gave a day’s pay in memory of those lost in the Boer war. The chapel is Scotland’s national memorial to Queen Victoria.

    The Salvation Army Centre in Stirling’s Raploch housing scheme provides a variety of services, from hot food five days a week to podiatry, dentistry, medical support and drug advice, including needle exchange. Billy McMurray OBE, who runs the centre, spoke of how his own problem background helped him to work with the centre’s clients, and how non judgemental support to keep people alive until they have a chance to change their lives is a Christian calling.
