Pulpit  and Memorial Tablets


     The pulpit is constructed of specially selected pitch pine and the inset panels show up with excellent effect the rich,     fine grain of this wood. The arch-shaped background and the Bible rest in front are richly upholstered in a deep-       crimson shade of plush material, which imparts a lustre to the coloured walls of the Church.


      1914      OUR GLORIOUS DEAD     1919

"These counted not their lives dear unto themselves." The memorial, a hand­some brass plaque mounted in a frame        of dark oak, bears the names of thirty-two members of the church who fell in the Great War.

On the wall above the inner West Door is a brass tablet with the following inscription :-


    This Tower is erected by Jane and Susan Carmichael in loving memory of their brother, Peter Carmichael of Arthurstone and Heritor in this Parish, who passed away on the 6th May, 1891, aged 82 years, and whose body rests in this Churchyard.

      "He was a faithful worshipper in this Church and greatly honoured and beloved by all for the conspicuous worth of his character and his constant efforts for the good of the parish and district."

"Lord, I have loved the habitation of Thy House and the place where Thine honour dwelleth."
