It's almost 30 years since the terrible disaster in the North Sea when 165 people from the oil rig Piper Alpha and 2 crewmen of the standby vessel Sandhaven tragically lost their lives.
To mark that anniversary, on Saturday 7 July, we will keep the Church Sanctuary open from 10am to 4pm providing a peaceful space in which to remember those who lost their lives and those who were affected.
Visitors will be drawn to the Memorial Chapel, home of the beautiful and meaningful Piper Alpha stained glass window. The designer of the window, Jennifer-Jane Bayliss, will be in the church from 11am - 12 noon and between 2 and 4pm.
At present, the church is also home to the Lord Provost's Book of Remembrance, and visitors will be able to read the names of loved ones who were lost that night, as well as survivors' names and official letters of condolence from all over the world.
A short film with some memories from survivors of the disaster will also be available.
There will be an opportunity to light a small candle in remembrance. Anyone wishing to remember this event and those who died will be welcome.
