SRCT takes to the Twittersphere
The SRCT was so inspired by all that was happening at our churches for Doors Open Days during September that we just wanted to tell as many people as possible about it! Guided tours, scavenger hunts, quizzes, displays, music, art, genealogy - and not forgetting teas and home baking – abounded. Getting the message out to everybody to come along and join in made us think about how we can communicate better, especially with younger people.

Tibbermore First World War Memories
A remarkable book – The Roll of Honour, Parish of Tibbermore, Hillyland, Tulloch and Burghmuir 1914-19 – is helping to shed light on the service given by hundreds of local men and women during the First World War.
