On 21 March 2010 in St Michael's Parish Church the four churches of Partner Churches joined together for a celebration of our partnership.
The Moderator of the Presbytery of Edinburgh, Rev Alistair Keil, and the Episcopalian Bishop of Edinburgh, Rt Rev Brian Smith, also joined in our celebrations. The preacher was Rev Peter Neilson who has done so much to help us on this journey.

Everyone who attended signed the covenant - the photographs above show part of the signing.

Just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in the one Spirit
we were all baptised into one body - Jews or Greeks, slaves or free - and we were all made to drink of one Spirit. Indeed, the body does not consist of one member but of many.
1 Corinthians 12.12-14

Lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Ephesians 4.1-3

The full text of the covenant can be found in "The Tower" February 2010.
