The congregation at Carnmoney Parish Church was nearly doubled on Sunday May 12 as children from the Church Lads and Girls Brigade and their parents took part in a special family service and received their awards for the year.
The children read and led the prayers whilst the Vicar, the Rev Andy Heber, encouraged the congregation to consider Heaven and how we can be sure of our place there.
At the end of the service, awards were distributed and the leaders of the two organisations were thanked for all their hard work over the year.
Everyone then decamped outside for a picnic together, followed by impromptu games enjoyed by both adults and children.
Andy said: “The beautiful sunshine after a week of rain really enhanced the day and everyone agreed that this had been a memorable occasion.”
