St. Giles Presbyterian Church is proud to be the church sponsor for the annual Northeast Florida Scottish Highland Games & Festival in February every year.
The service is led by our pastor, Jake Young, and contains a wee bit of humor, the traditional blessing of the tartans and features music by The First Coast Highlanders – Clay County’s own Bagpipe and Drum Band. The church is decked out in tartans displaying the different names from many clans – ‘tis a sight to behold! (Come early and get a selfie in front of your ancestral tartan!)
After the service, a special Scottish themed fellowship is held, where various Scottish savory delights, like Scottish Shepherd’s Pie, shortbread and biscuits with homemade jams and jellies, can be enjoyed. (Best of all… you don’t need to be Scottish to enjoy this wonderful event!)
We look forward to rejoicing in each other’s company, as well as the blessings of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ during this special event. Please join us!
