As many of you will already be aware, our new Minister, the Rev Barry Dunsmore will be inducted to the charge at St Machar’s at a service to be held at 7pm on Friday the 27th February 2015. The Service will be conducted by the Moderator of Aberdeen Presbytery and is the formal stage in the calling of the new Minister.
The service will be attended by members of the Presbytery as well as the congregation here at St Machar’s. It will be followed by a Congregational Social event to help us meet Barry and his wife Hilda in a less formal setting.
It is to be hoped that there is a large turnout to welcome Barry and Hilda on what will be a very happy occasion for us all.
Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Service at Queens Cross Church this afternoon at 3pm.
