Kilwinning’s Matchstick Man Jim Miller, has been busy as usual over the past two years building his matchstick models of churches.

Jim has had a backlog of

three churches awaiting delivery since before the pandemic. In fact the photographs and measurements required for two of the models were taken in 2019. Sorn was photographed in August of 2019 and Auchinleck in December of 2019.

Recently, however, because of the relaxation of some Covid rules, he has been able to gift three churches to their rightful homes.

During June, Jim and his wife Janet, visited Skelmorlie & Wemyss Bay Parish Church, followed by a visit to Auchinleck Parish Church at the beginning of July and then finally to Sorn Parish Church on Sunday, July 18. At all the churches the Ministers and members of the congregation were very pleased to receive the models of their Churches.

There is no need to ask how Jim passed his time during lockdown.
