Heritage Sunday (last Sunday in October)

On Heritage Sunday, we celebrate our Presbyterian heritage! Worship begins with a procession of bagpipers, choirs, and tartans. All choirs provide musical leadership through the singing of hymns and anthems, accompanied by guest instrumentalists.

Family tartans are displayed during this service.

Just what is the Kirkin' of the Tartan?

The origins of this tradition are from the eighteenth century. After Scottish patriots were defeated at the battle of Culloden in 1745, the British Parliament passed the Parliamentary Act of 1746 which banned the kilt and every other tartan garment in an effort to destroy Highland Clan identity. Not easily deterred defiant Scots secretly carried remnants of their tartans to church. The mnisters would then add a blessing into the service for the tartans and the clans they represented.


DATE: October 2017
TIME: 8:45 & 11:00 AM Worship
