Why a Union?

2023 saw one of the most major upheavals in the Church in Scotland since the Great Disruption of 1843.

Throughout the country, churches are closing and congregations are amalgamating at a greater rate than ever before. This has been brought about by falling numbers, too many old buildings, a shortage of ministers and the realisation that the church will only be strengthened by a return to emphasis on mission.

 

Complicating these changes for us, sadly, has been the retiral of Rev. Ian Maclean in August 2023 and then Rev. Geoff Redmayne in October 2023.

 

So, seriously ALL CHANGE.

Our New Logo

The key element of the new logo for Montrose Trinity is a “Triquetra”. This is a Celtic symbol that has long been used by Christians as a sign of the Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), especially since the Celtic revival of the 19th century.

In its simplest form, the triquetra is comprised of three interlaced arcs representing interconnectedness and infinity.

Also known as the trinity knot, the Celtic trinity knot, and the Holy Trinity, the triquetra also often features an interwoven circle. This form emphasizes the unity of the whole shape and the combination of three forces. It is also said to symbolize God's love around the Holy Trinity.

In our case, the blue triquetra represents our three worship centres united within one Church. The golden circle is embracing our union, representing the love of God as well as the Trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
