The church will host The Postcard Art Fair on Friday, September 7.

Stewardship team member Sarah Mackie said: "We have written to lots of local artists and linked in Open Studio artists, amateur local artists and celebrities and asked them to contribute to our art fair.

"Nearly 100 artists are involved and all of the pieces are postcard sized. Our contributors include Danny Ross of Tolquhon Gallery, Jennifer Lee who recently won the prestigious Loewe Craft prize in London, and famous names including David Beckham and Dame Evelyn Glennie.

"Being the year of young people we have also been delighted to receive some artwork from some very talented youth."

All of the artworks will be sold by silent auction on the night with bids starting at £20. The artist of each piece will remain a secret until the end of the bidding.

Sarah added: "We are fortunate to have so many people willing to help make this event a success, it has been in the planning for many months and we are grateful not only to the artists who have contributed, but also to everyone involved from making canapes and running the evening making it fun for everyone to enjoy."

Wine and canapes will be served on the night and the event will run from 7pm to 9pm.

Entry to the event is free and everyone is welcome to come along.
