About the Vacancy
We received one application in response to our advertisement for a new Priest-in-Charge.  Arrangements are being made for the applicant to come here early in November to meet members of our congregations and of the two Vestries.  More details will be made available in due course. Meanwhile, it is timely to repeat our sincere appreciation and thanks to those who are ensuring the continuity of our worship during this inter-regnum, particularly to Rev Valerie Saunders and Rev Barbara Chandler.

Further musical events at St James’ Church planned for 2018 include a flute recital (late February or early March) and a concert by the string quartet newly formed by Emma Donald (late May).

The Ten Strings Duo return to St James Episcopal Church, Castle Street, Dingwall on Tuesday August 15th 2017 @ 7.30PM

An ensemble of two young Sicilian virtuosos, the Ten Strings Duo are Marianatalia Ruscica, violinist, and Davide Sciacca, guitarist. Conservatoire and school teachers and appreciated performers, their repertoire varies from early 19th century composers to contemporary authors, and it was worth many important prizes.

Their concerts are always warmly received by both audiences and critics, taking part in classical music seasons organised by prestigious music organisations in theatres, concert halls, and heritage sites and buildings.

In 2016 they performed in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen, His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and other members of the Royal Family at Crathie Kirk, near Ballater, Aberdeenshire.
