Many representatives of the life of the city joined us on Sunday 8 September for the Kirking of the Council .
The Kirking is the annual service at which members of the Inverness City Committee of the Highland Council attend the Old High Church. The event is open to all, with a special invitation to those who work in public service.

The preacher was the minister of Old High St Stephen’s, the Rev Peter W Nimmo. He preached on the trail of Christ before Pontius Pilate, with the sermon title ‘A Politician’s Dilemma‘, which is now available online.
Prayers were led by the Rev Colin Macleod of the Free North Church, and the Rev Alastair Murray, Moderator of Inverness Church of Scotland Presbytery. We also heard from Lorna Dempster, Co-ordinator of Highland Foodbank (Blythswood Care).
A special offering was taken for Christian Aid’s Syria Crisis Appeal.
A parade, including local schools, members of uniformed youth organisations, the University of the Highlands and Islands, and soldiers of 3 Scots from Fort George, left and returned from the Town House.

We proclaim Christ crucified…
Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom,
and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.
