AN INSIGHT into life as Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland will be given at an event in the city on Wednesday.

Dunfermline minister Iain Greenshields will deliver a talk titled 'A year like no other' when he will speak about his time in the role at the event organised by the Carnegie Dunfermline Rotary Club.

Dr Greenshields, who is back in his role as Minister at St Margaret’s Parish Church in Touch, was called to serve in some unusual and unexpected ways during his term of office from June 2022 to May 2023.

He was one of the last people to speak to the late Queen Elizabeth when he visited her at Balmoral just before she died. He then had official roles at her funeral and the ensuing coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla.

He also visited South Sudan to take part in peace talks to end the civil war there, alongside Pope Francis and the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The Rotary Club's acting president, Charlie Clark, said: “It promises to be a fascinating evening. Iain found himself at the centre of events that made headlines around the world, so his personal insights into those events will be worth hearing.”

The event begins at 7pm – doors open at 6:30pm – and there will be a question-and-answer session after the talk.

Tickets, costing £5.80, are available on Eventbrite, or at the door. £5 from each ticket sold will be donated to the Touch Community Trust, which supports disadvantaged residents living in the area.
