Dear friends.  

I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news.  However, your minister, Peter Nimmo, is once again unwell.  He will be off work for the next couple of weeks in the first instance – his fit note runs until Thursday 21 September.  In the meantime, the Presbytery Clerk has invited me to serve as Interim Moderator.  I know – you get to put up with me once more!  I am grateful to Graham Macgregor, who has agreed to lead worship and preach on Sunday 10 September in Cambuslang Parish Church – therefore, I know you are in good hands.  Since Karen Hamilton is presently away at a conference, any pastoral requests should be directed to Ian Cathcart or myself in the first instance.  Furthermore, I will ensure that the Kirk Session meeting already scheduled for Tuesday 19 September goes ahead.  I’d appreciate if conveners of teams might submit relevant reports and motions to Scott Hamilton when available, and ahead of time for circulation.  My number is 07723 578 573 and my email is ku.gro.dnaltocsfohcruhcnull@sehguhd  I am always very happy to hear from you, and I will do my best to support you through this period.  

Every blessing as we serve the Lord together.  

Derek W. Hughes
