A new £1.55m church and community centre in Perthshire was officially opened by Olympic swimmer Steven Milne in September.

The day of celebration for the Madoch Centre began with worship led by former Moderator of the General Assembly the Very Rev Albert Bogle; followed by a series of events including a procession led by ‘St Madoch’ and his monks, who had arrived at the banks of the Tay in coracles.

The congregation of St Madoes and Kinfauns has spent the last two years raising funds to build and equip the Centre, which will host a social enterprise café, sports activities and community events, as well as church services and worship events.
