    Thanks for your reply, Alan. I have amended the text to reflect your concern.

    Fair enough, but ‘occult’? That is witchcraft, which we abhor.

    We recently started a facebook group!/pages/Twechar-Nazarene-Church/119663904738264

    I have posted all three of your comments because it is clear that you are offended by what I have written. If so, I apologise, since no offence was intended.

    The reason I put up the photograph is because I admire your church. Having been raised in the Kirk myself, I was struck by the numerous churches I found on my trips, of all types and sizes – including Glasgow Cathedral, Paisley Abbey, Renfrew Old Parish, Govan Old Parish and Rutherglen to name a few – and have been rewarded by the experience.

    Do not construe my remark as in any way critical. On the contrary, I think the modesty of your church and its lack of adornment is a testament to those who built it and to those who continue to congregate there.

    I was interested to learn that your church was built by miners. Their effort surely underlines their faith and demonstrates how, in order to worship, a congregation does not need an ornate building, if a building is needed at all. Let’s not forget Jesus himself preached wherever he could.

    The Twechar church is ‘void of adornement’ becasue it was built by miners

    Please remove the foto of our Church in Twechar or say something honest about it.
