New Minister at Kilmaurs
It was an encouraging evening for the congregation at Kilmaurs on Tuesday 16 August as over 100 people gathered for the service to appoint Rev Nathan Owens as minister. This is one of several appointments under the Reshaping for Mission initiative where ministers will spend part of their time in leading services and preaching along with pastoral care. The remainder of their time will be spent seeking to develop links with the community and helping the people in the congregation engage more with those living around them. It is hoped this initiative will benefit both the local community and the congregation.
The Presbytery of the West is looking forward to ordaining 2 ministers in the near future.
Rev Martin Paterson will be ordained in a service at Stonehouse on Wednesday 31 August at 7 pm and Rev Dr David Miller in a service at Millerston on Tuesday 6th September at 7 pm.
