    AYRSHIRE’S Sikh Association will become the first in Scotland to have its Sunday worship lead by a team of female ministers.

    For the first time in the history of the group and according to chairman Paul Singh, it’s the first time in Scotland that women have led the Sunday worship.

    The group, who meet at the town’s Woodlands Centre every Sunday, will hold the ceremony on Sunday, January 30.

    Paul said: “As far as I am aware, this is the first time in Scotland that women have taken the lead in the Sunday service.

    “It’s something that we are keen to start and I am proud to be the first.”

    Ayrshire Sikh Association are currently in talks with North Ayrshire Council to take over the running of the Woodlands Centre.

    Members are now working on a plan to submit to North Ayrshire Council.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
