Finding a new Minister.
Northern Presbytery has appointed the Reverend Martin Fey as Interim Moderator to oversee our search.
Martin is the Minister at Forrest Hill Presbyterian Church.
The interim moderator ensures that effective ministry continues during the vacancy. His task as settlement board convener is to help the congregation determine a suitable form of ministry for the future of the parish. This may include appointing an ordained minister, which will require approval of the presbytery.
Martin is readily found on the web. Alternatively, phone him at 410 9429.

Sunday, 29 October, Café Service at 9.30 as usual, with a focus on Operation Christmas Child and the gift shoe boxes which we have been filling for children who do not normally receive Christmas presents It will be held in the hall with more informality around tables but follow a fairly normal order of service with prayers. readings and hymns. Tea. coffee and nibbles will be available throughout. There will be a video of the countries where the shoe boxes are going, a quiz and simple activities such as writing messages in Christmas cards and making Christmas stars for inclusion in the boxes. It should be fun and special.
