Clan Donald Canterbury: The Kirkin of the Tartan 2022

After missing last year’s Kirkin of the Tartan because of Covid 19, this years’ Kirkin of the Tartan was held on Sunday 9 October, by the Canterbury Scottish Heritage Council at the Village Presbyterian Church, 365a Ilam Road, Christchurch. There was a good attendance of clan representatives.

The Kirkin’ was taken by the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of New Zealand, Rt. Rev. Hamish Galloway who gave an interesting and inspiring account of his recent attendance at the World Council of Churches Assembly held in Karlsruhe, Germany.
