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.

We pray for the people suffering from Earthquakes; Storms; War; throughout the world. Also for our people who are sick, cold, hungry.
On the last day of the festival, the great day, while Jesus was standing there, he cried out,
“Let anyone who is thirsty come to me, and let the one who believes in me drink. As the scripture has said, Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water.” Now he said this about the Spirit, which believers in him were to receive; for as yet there was no Spirit, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
Then afterward I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh;
your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. Even on the male and female slaves, in those days, I will pour out my spirit. Joel 2:28,29
“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth. Jn. 16:13
He will lead you into all truth. He will take what is mine and declare it to you.” Jn.16:15
Five realities with the Spirit’s presence:
1. There’s the uniform to wear
2. Christians walking in the Spirit are ambassadors for Christ and his Kingdom.
3. Blessed, by the Holy Spirit, we’ll be acting on behalf of the King, doing the works of the King.
4. When we’re acting in the Spirit as Jesus’ ambassadors we need to remember where our real homeland is. We are citizens of heaven.
5. Any authority we have is delegated authority
“If anyone thirst let him come to me and drink and out of his heart will flow rivers of living water -he said this about the Spirit.”
