To launch the series of reflective walks from the United Church of Bute to St Blane’s we are holding a weekend of events – 10th and 11th August 2019.

Saturday 10th August

Art Workshop – 10 am start.
The workshop run by Ruth Slater will offer 15 free places to local Bute residents interested in learning more about how to use art to capture emotions. To learn more go to the Church Facebook page.

Singing workshop and Shape Note Singing – 2 pm start
