Railway Street Presbyterian Women (PW) celebrated the 125th anniversary of women’s mission at a special meeting in Railway Street Presbyterian Church Hall on Thursday 17th December.
Dorothy McClelland (former PW leader) welcomed PW members, friends and guests to the special anniversary meeting and Margaret Artt (PW Secretary) gave a brief overview of missionary work at home and overseas.
Lis Thompson (current PW Leader) read two portions of Scripture and after giving a short Christmas meditation, concluded the formal part of the evening with prayer.
The ‘Evening of Victorian Music’ featuring the Percy French Quartet included a programme of Percy French songs & poems and Victorian songs followed by carol singing and finishing with the festive song, ‘We wish you a merry Christmas’. Prior to a seasonal supper which was enjoyed by all, a 125th anniversary cake was cut by Vivienne Weir assisted by Railway Street ministers’ wives past and present, Kathleen Cromie, Jean Gibson and Linda Davidson.
