News & Events - 2005

Dedication of Peace Garden

On 25 September, after Evensong and a Harvest Festival supper, the rear garden of the church was dedicated by Fr Gareth and named the "Peace Garden". Plans for the layout of this garden were submitted by students of Elmwood College and were accepted by the vestry on 20 April. Since then a considerable amount of work has been done by the students and members of the congregation, in particular by Jenny Legge. Paving slabs were donated by a local firm and money for plants was donated by church members.

Centenary and closure of St Mary's Kinghorn

On Sunday, 14 August, members of St Peter's and St Mary's joined together in a Sung Eucharist to celebrate 100 years of the church on its present site. The celebrant and preacher was the new bishop, the Right Rev David Chillingworth. Sadly it also marked the last service to be held there. Subsequent services will be held in the Sailors Isle in Kinghorn Parish Church. In spite of that, there was a spirit of hope and optimism among the congregation and the occasion was not an unhappy one. The service was followed by a buffet lunch.

Celebration of the life of Richard Pattinson

Musician Richard Pattinson, son of Alan Pattinson, was killed in an accident in the Swiss mountains on 18 July. Stunned by news of his death, members of the community, members of St Peter's, representatives of the musical world here and abroad, family and friends attended a service at St Peter's on 29 July.
