St_Michael_s_ChurchHELENSBURGH'S St Michael and All Angels Scottish Episcopal Church looked back over the weekend from Friday to Sunday October 5-7.

Church members were raising funds for the Oxfam East Africa Crises Appeal, and the theme was Helensburgh 100 years ago.

Last year a similar event raised £2,300, and the target this time was £3,000. Helpers were encouraged to wear period costume — or at least a hint — and the music played was all composed prior to 1912.

The programme was — Friday 5th, Concert in Church by Glasgow Academy; Saturday 6th, In Church, floral displays, live music, old photo display; In Hall, craft fayre, food, teas, raffle; Sunday 7th, Church services until 12 noon, then as for Saturday until 4pm.

Some of the old photos were from the Heritage Trust website, and Trust board members were present to answer questions.
