Trevor also met with the minister at Kirkwall East (Church of Scotland), Julia Lewandowska and members of the congregation’s Mission Group, discussing how they might move forward on a Continuing Award, thinking that the spiritual sphere of church life might be the area where they attempt something new.

The next day, Trevor was given a conducted tour of the East Mainland Parish courtesy of the minister, Wilma Johnston, and an opportunity to discuss the process for a church registering as an Eco Congregation.

In between these events and meetings Trevor also managed informal conversation with folk from the Roman Catholic parish and from the United Reformed Church’s Peedie Kirk.
