We began the period of mourning as a nation on Friday the 9th September by being one of the churches across the land to ring out their bells at noon. This was followed by a short act of worship with a candle lit for the Queen. This candle will be lit every day in the church during the 10 days of national mourning. During this period, the services on Sunday the 11th and 18th of September in the church at 11am at Mayfield and Easthouses will include special prayers and reflections. The church is open for prayer and quiet contemplation every morning except Saturday the 17th September. The Church of Scotland website has regular contributions from the Moderator and others to guide our remembrance and thanksgiving for the life of the Queen.
