Tree decoration excitement

Two women and Christmas tree

We are delighted to have our second tree in the St Andrew’s and St George’s West Edinburgh Christmas Tree Festival this year. Not only do we have decorations on it which are made from the Malawi-Scotland Partnership chitenje but also we were interviewed and filmed by the Scotland Malawi Partnership and then by STV news. What a lot of excitement before lunch!

The festival is beautiful – full of joy, peace and hope. Do visit it if you are in Edinburgh between now and the 24th December. There are 40 trees from different groups and organisations. We are proud to be among them and within this Church whose congregation is so supportive to us. In the café downstairs there are Scottish wildlife calendars for sale. Created by a member of this congregation, a portion of the profits will go to the Thompson Scholarship Fund, which will send three girls to school from September 2019, through MMF.
