Act of Worship and Witness at Faslane
Scottish Clergy Against Nuclear Arms (SCANA) have rescheduled their annual Easter Witness at Faslane, postponed this year because of the weather, to take place at 12 noon on Saturday, September 7th, 2013.
This is an Act of Witness and Worship as a peaceful protest against the possession, and intended use, of weapons of mass destruction currently held by the UK Government – weapons which all the Churches in Scotland have condemned as blasphemous and against the Gospel of Peace of Jesus Christ.
There will be singing, prayers and speakers – including Peter Macdonald (Leader of the Iona Community); Sally Foster-Fulton, Convenor of the Church and Society Council of the Church of Scotland, and the Rt Rev Joe Toal, the local Roman Catholic Bishop. We will have a short march, and a picnic, and everyone is most welcome. Please let local church groups know.
