The Saturday Breakfast Club

The programme for the next season of the Saturday Breakfast club has been arranged. The group meets in the church at 7.45 am and following a short service, we move over to the Kirk Hall for breakfast – bacon rolls, toast, croissants, tea, coffee and orange juice.
Following breakfast we welcome our guest speaker and, after their talk and a time for questions and discussion, we plan to finish as close to 9 am as possible so that everyone is free to continue with their Saturday activities.
Here is a brief note on the speakers lined up for the new session – please make a note of the dates in your diary – and I will look forward to welcoming you to any and all of the meetings.
With best wishes,
Russell Barr

Linda Farrer is an elder at Reid Memorial Church and a member of Edinburgh Street Pastors. Linda will describe
something of the work of the Street Pastors and of the ministry they offer to some of Edinburgh’s city centre street people and clubbers each Friday and Saturday evening.
The Reverend Ian Alexander is secretary to the World Mission Council. Jane Haining was a Church of Scotland
missionary in Budapest during the years of the 2nd World War. Executed at Auschwitz, she is the only Scot to have been honoured at Jerusalem’s Yad Veshem memorial to the holocaust victims. Last year some of Jane Haining’s letters and documents, including her will, were found in a box in the attic at the Church of Scotland offices in George Street and Ian will tell us about this remarkable woman. 
Following his time as locum at Cramond Kirk, the Reverend Tom Cuthell needs no introduction. For many
years Tom has been leading pilgrimages to Assisi and he will speak about his life-long interest in pilgrimage and in St
Francis of Assisi.
The Reverend Marjory McPherson is the newly appointed Clerk to the Presbytery of Edinburgh. Having trained as a
lawyer, Marjory has served as a university chaplain and also as a staff member with the Ministries Council. Marjory is the first woman to be appointed as a full time clerk in the Church of Scotland and will speak about her hopes and
ambitions for her new role.
