Festival Outreach Events from Origin Scotland

Dear friends at Liberton Northfield Parish Church,
Following on from last year’s events – we’re delighted to be hosting another festival of Christian music right on the Royal Mile during the festival. The evenings will feature well-known local artists like Steph Macleod, The Exile Band, Beth Coyle, Alan McKinlay, Anthem 33, Selah Corbin, The Royal Foundlings, El Mafrex and others.

Each evening, three bands or artists will play their music and share their faith stories with festival-goers, in a cafe-style environment. A refreshments bar will be available. If you’re looking for something to recommend to your congregation for good quality Christian music that is a great opportunity to confidently bring a non-Christian friend along to, this is it.

Safeguarding Training

Church of Scotland is committed to safeguarding and ensuring all congregations have the policies and procedures needed, to protect and support those who might be vulnerable to harm or risk of harm.

As a result of “The Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007” Church of Scotland has launched a PVG retrospective project running from October 2012 to October 2015 making it imperative that all voluntary and paid workers, carrying out ‘regulated’ work within the Church become PVG members and successfully complete PVG Introductory training.

Therefore it is mandatory that all those within Liberton Northfield who currently carry out ‘Regulated’ work with Children or Protected Adults become PVG Scheme members (by October 2015) and attend Safeguarding Training on the prescribed dates.

Liberton Northfield is extremely privileged that the Church of Scotland has agreed to send two of their fully qualified Safeguarding Trainers to Liberton Northfield to run an in-house ‘Safeguarding Introductory Course’.

Details of the course are as follows:



TIME:  19:00hrs – 21:30hrs



WHO SHOULD ATTEND:  The course is aimed at those volunteers working within congregations who give one or two hours per week to run Creches, Sunday schools, Parents and tots,  Youth groups, Pastoral care groups etc. or staff the various projects being targeted at adults who may be at risk of harm. The training is intended to empower these groups of volunteers so that they will recognise harm and be confident in reporting it.


HOW TO SIGN UP:  Please put your name on the Safeguarding Training poster, which can be found in the friendship hall by Friday 22nd August 2014.  This will enable Church of Scotland to finalise the numbers (max places 30) and split the group into children/ vulnerable adults workers.  All those who attend the course will receive a certificate of attendance.


If you have any questions about whether you should attend this course or would like to discuss anything further, then please speak to:  Carlynn Young, Liberton Northfield’s Safeguarding Coordinator, who would be happy to speak to you.
