Kirking of the Council 2014

The historic Kirking of the Council service took place at the Old High Church on Sunday 14 September.

Inverness members of the Highland Council were joined by civic leaders for an ecumenical service celebrating public service.

The service this year happened to take place the Sunday before the Scottish independence referendum, and so there was a them of reconciliation in the service.

‘Choose life!’ was the title of the sermon which the Minister, the Rev Peter W Nimmo, preached at the service.

Here’s the Order of Service for the Kirking of the Council.

Here’s a sermon looking forward to the Kirking, from the previous Sunday.
