Thank you very much for joining the Church of Scotland this Advent - we hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

Welcome the stranger - Rev Hayley Cohen

An East Lothian minister is encouraging people to extend dinner invitations to those spending Christmas alone.

Rev Hayley Cohen of Northesk Parish Church in Musselburgh said they would be following in the footsteps of Jesus who was known for his radical hospitality and feeding people – physically, emotionally and spiritually.

As an American living in Scotland, she said she knows what it is like to spend Christmas far away from friends and family.
