Pastoral Letter

Dear Friends, 

'I was a stranger and you welcomed me' (St Matthew 25) 

As a young subaltern in the Black Watch I came to love the Reel of 51st Highland Division. Throughout the dance there is a real sense of welcome as dancers are constantly being introduced to one another. The last welcome is as heartfelt as the first.  

At St Cuthbert's we have a wonderful team of volunteer guides ready and eager to welcome visitors throughout the season. I am sure the welcomes later in the Autumn will be a good as those in this Spring. 

Within the life of the church the first welcome is administered at baptism and traditionally the font used to be placed just inside the door. It would be the first thing a visitor would see on entering the sanctuary. 

We all have a vital role to play in the task of welcoming the stranger into our midst for in so doing we surely have the privilege of welcoming Christ himself. 

May a St Cuthbert's welcome be at the heart of all we do.  

God Bless
