Looking to the Future


With Bill's retiral we now find ourselves in another vacancy situation and we welcome our new Interim Moderator, Ruth McKenzie.


Let us not be discouraged as we have a strong faith and a strong Church. Who knows what God's plan is for us but while we keep the faith he will look after us; albeit we will have to do our bit and there is no doubt that there will be some hard work ahead for us. A Nominating Committee will be formed who will have the responsibility of looking for our next minister which will be no small task. As we all know there are fewer ministers out there and there are eight other charges within Buchan Presbytery alone looking for a new minister. I feel that during our last vacancy we became stronger as a church community and I also think that we found skills within our midst that people were not aware of before: hopefully we will find the same this time around.


Help us, O God to find here today wisdom to know what is right and strength to do what is right. Enlighten our minds with your truth, warm our hearts with your love, fill our lives with your power, that we may go out to live for you through Jesus Christ our Lord.
