KIRKING OF THE COUNCIL REVIEW 
There was a great turn out of the oldest event – the Kirking of the Council - which took place on Sunday 10 September.

Staff and Members of The Highland Council along with guests from the University of the Highlands and Islands and community councils paraded, led by the Royal British Legion Scotland (Inverness Branch) pipes and drums, and the City of Inverness Youth Pipe Band along with uniformed youth groups and school representatives.

The service in the Old High Church was led by Reverend Peter Nimmo, Minister of Old High St Stephen’s Church who will delivered a sermon called 'Cherish the light!' which was based on two readings from the New Testament. Leading the opening prayer was the Reverend Stewart A MacKay, Chaplain of The Black Watch 3rd Battalion of The Royal Regiment of Scotland; and leading the Prayers of Thanksgiving and Intercession was Rev Sarah Murray, Provost of St Andrew’s Cathedral in Inverness.

Provost and Leader of Inverness, Councillor Helen Carmichael, gave the Provost’s traditional Scripture reading.
