Church leaders in Inverness joined forces to hold an ecumenical service in memory of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who was laid to rest at Windsor Castle at the weekend.

A service, led by Rev Fiona Smith, took place at Ness Bank Church of Scotland on Sunday.

Other churches represented were the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Free Church of Scotland, the Roman Catholic Church, the Methodist Church, King’s Church on behalf of the Inverness Independent Churches, the Salvation Army and the Baptist Church of Inverness.

Dr Waheed Kahn, from the Inverness Mosque, was also welcomed at the service which was live-streamed.

Civic leaders, including several Lord-Lieutenants from across the Highlands, attended the service which was restricted to 50 people due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Hymns included The Lord’s My Shepherd, Eternal Father, Strong to Save and Thine Be The Glory.
