Church service to bring Yes and No together

THE Church of Scotland will invite leading figures from the Better Together and Yes campaigns to attend a service of reconciliation on September 21, three days after the referendum.

The service at St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh will focus on building a future together, whatever the outcome of the referendum.

The Moderator Designate, Rev John Chalmers said: "Once the referendum vote has taken place, we shall have neither utopia nor unity.

"In the coming months there is a danger the referendum will set people against each other, in their own community, their own street - even their own family."
