The Chesney Trust

Many members of our congregation will recall Janet Chesney and her remarkable work in Malawi.  Dr John Dymond, a member of St Mary’s, is heavily involved with the trust in Scotland and has kindly provided this update of news.

‘The builders have been busy at our girls’ boarding school in Engcongolweni, Malawi, as they complete the head mistress’s house plus a small teacher’s house so that eight of the ten staff can now be housed on campus, in time for the start of the new school year.  They will then move on to finish the physics and biology laboratories, for which we have the funding.  Our kitchen/dining hall building was constructed this year and we just await the result of an application for a grant to fit out the kitchen. Janet Chesney still lives in Mzuzu and oversees the project, now in its twelfth year.

The school roll remains at 160, with forty girls in each of the four forms.  We were delighted to learn that 11 of those who finished school in 2015 will be taking up places at universities in Malawi this month, and we look forward to hearing the results within a few weeks of the Form 4 girls who sat the Malawi School Certificate examination this summer.  Last November, the school choir took first place, out of 11, in a competition for northern region schools.

We are extremely grateful to Vestry for the donations made over the years, and for the support of the two congregations’.

The Transfiguration

Father in heaven,
whose Son Jesus Christ was wonderfully transfigured
before chosen witnesses upon the holy mountain,
and spoke of the exodus he would accomplish at Jerusalem:
give us strength so to hear his voice and bear our cross
that in the world to come we may see him as he is;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

St Mary’s Sunday 30th July

This Sunday we are joined by the Manchester Church Lads and Gilrs Brigade for the Annual Camp Service. This year a record number of young people are staying at Dounans.

 

The Callander and Trossachs Summer Fest runs in Callander from the 16th to the 30th July with a variety of daily activates. Brochures are available at St Andrews

 

The Linkage Annual Trip

This will be held on Monday 31st July with the destination being Callander House Falkirk. Callendar House dates from the 14th century but was rebuilt in the 19th in French chateau style fused with Scots Baronial. It is set in the nationally important historic designed landscape of Callendar Park, which contains a section of the Antonine Wall World Heritage Site. The estate was originally one of the seats of the Thanes of Callander (note spelling) who also had a castle close to St Kessog’s Manse by the river Teith in our Callander.

The House’s permanent displays are ‘The Story of Callendar House (from the 11th to the 19th century)’, ‘ The Antonine Wall: Rome’s Northern Frontier’ and ‘Falkirk: Crucible of Revolution 1750-1850’ . When we visit there will be a temporary exhibition on the Romans and one called ‘Workhorse: the Clydesdales of Flanders Moss’ of photographs by Michael Prince.

In the restored 1825 Kitchen, costumed interpreters create an exciting interactive experience with samples of early 19th century food and stories of working life in a large household.

There is a tea room and all floors are accessible by lift.

We leave Callander at 10.00 and will return no later than 16.30. Cost £10.00 payable in advance to Hilary Gunkel mail@hilarygunkel.co.uk 01877 330798
