The Big Question

This month’s question is: ‘What are the benefits of congregational links with churches overseas?’
The Rev Barbara Sweetin, minister, Forfar: East and Old Parish Church

“East and Old Church in Forfar twins with Zuglo Church in Budapest and has informal links with Dubendorf and Schwerzenbach Church in Zurich and with Memmingen in Germany.

“Last year all four churches came together twice – once in Scotland and then in Switzerland.

“There are so many benefits to having links with overseas churches, with friendship being the top of the list. “Many of my church members have new friends in these countries who email each other and now visit each other.

“When we visit these other churches and we stay with host families and visit other members of the churches, we get to know what life is like for them and they see how we live in Scotland too. Although it appears slightly different we all still have similar concerns in life, similar ups and downs.
