Religious exhibition

Sister Joan Chukwarah is a Franciscan nun from Nigeria working in Glasgow as a missionary. Able Peter Miller, who fled to Glasgow from Zimbabwe as a political refugee, is a descendant of Alasdair Miller, a missionary from Edinburgh who was sent to work in Africa in 1843 and married a local woman.

Their portraits are among a series of photographs that feature in A Glasgow Story, an exhibition at the city's St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art.

More than 14,000 African and African Caribbean people reside in Glasgow today and the show, which runs until July 29, gives a snapshot of how faith has shaped the lives of a few dozen of them.

The exhibition is supported by school workshops and Sunday afternoon Faith to Faith sessions suitable for continuing professional development. On April 22, the roots of the Rasta emancipation movement will be explored.

All eyes are on Dunbar in the week ahead, as the Scottish Boys' Match Play Golf Championships are staged from April 9-14. In one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the Scottish golf calendar, 256 boys from all over Scotland will play in a competition which is as much about endurance as skill.

Seventeen-year-old James White (Lundin Golf Club) beat Michael Main (Thornton Golf Club) last year in the first all-Fife final for 46 years at West Kilbride.

With the Scottish Executive's bold move to put a golf club in every nine-year-old's hands before the 2009 Ryder Cup, spectators can judge the current level of Scotland's best young players. Last month, the Scottish Boys' team retained the Quadrangular International title in Italy ahead of the host country, France and Sweden.
