We welcome the return of our minister,
Rev Peter Nimmo.
We are delighted that our minister Peter is back with us. Peter is on a phased return to work and during this time he will be on amended duties as agreed with the National Church and Presbytery. Peter will be increasing his duties over a 6 week period until the 5th December at which point he hopes to be back at work full time. During this phased return, Karen Hamilton our Deacon, will be the main point of contact for pastoral matters.
As members of the congregation, our calling as brothers and sisters in Christ, is to support Peter in his return to work. The Presbytery is supporting the congregation and Peter, by allowing Rev Derek Hughes to remain as Interim Moderator during Peter’s phased return. Derek will be available to Peter, elders and members of the congregation during this time and will moderate the next Kirk Session meeting on the 6th December.
Derek can be contacted at ku.gro.dnaltocsfohcruhcnull@sehguHD
