Sermon on causes of World War One

A SERMON preached by the father of Helensburgh-born TV inventor John Logie Baird early in World War One was considered at the time to be exceptionally moving and apposite.

The Rev John Baird had been the minister of Helensburgh West Parish Church, later named St Bride’s, for many years, and he came out of retirement to preach the sermon on Sunday September 20 1914. He was 72.

Churches sponsored 50 mile walk

FIFTY years ago next May, the then Helensburgh Youth Council organised a fifty mile walk . . . and now there are plans to celebrate the anniversary.

The event was held as part of and in aid of Christian Aid Week, and was from Killin, a village at the western head of Loch Tay which was then in Perthshire and is now in the local authority area of Stirling.

Cove's Tin Hut Church demolished

A PIECE of Rosneath Peninsula and local religious history was demolished in March 2013.

It was not a surprise, but it was a sad day for many local residents when the ‘Tin Hut Church’ was pulled down.
