On Sunday 12 May 2013, Willie Troup from our Stirling Action Group presented a new ‘visitors’ Bible to Stirling Castle on behalf of the Scottish Bible Society.

A Bible was first presented in 2011 by the Stirling Christians Together group as part of the celebrations marking the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible. Since then, so many people have looked through the visitors Bible that it has become rather worn down – hallelujah!

Willie presented the replacement Bible during a service in the Chapel Royal where choir members from churches in the Stirling area led visitors and guests in singing hymns throughout the afternoon.

I’d like to thank the Bible Society and all of the local churches and choirs represented for making the event such a success. It was also a fantastic opportunity to witness the Chapel being used for its original purpose. We hold a few events throughout the year – including Christmas where we invite choirs to sing in the Chapel Royal. The acoustics alone are spectacular – and it is really wonderful to hear the choirs within this magnificent setting.

Volunteers are vital to our work. Without them, we would not be able to fulfil our mission and many people would not know about the Scottish Bible Society.
