Joint Church Service in the Big Top at TMF 2014

A joint church service was held in the Big Top (circus tent) at TMF this year on the Sunday morning. Over 100 people attended, and were led in worship by Rev Elspeth MacLean, Rev Paul Beautyman (Youth Advisor to Argyll Presbytery), and Alan and Ursula Millar of Tiree Baptist Church. The musicians were John Gunderson’s grandson Ewan on pipes, Katie England on fiddle, Ian Smith on accordion, Sue Bottomley on keyboard and her son Jim Bottomley on guitar. Ishbel Campbell sang a beautiful solo in Gaelic and English. Everyone was invited to write a prayer on a piece of fabric and all these were them woven together (see photo of ‘tripod’ with woven strips on each side, along with other photos of the event  in the Gallery section of the website).
