New Elders

The Kirk Session were delighted that two new elders were admitted and ordained by James on Sunday 19 November.

Margaret Neville was originally ordained in West Kirk Dumbarton, then she moved to Helensburgh where she was an elder in Park Church, and Session Clerk from 2008 until 2012, when she moved to Inverness.  Margaret is a former school teacher and a member of the Church and Community Choirs.

Iain Russell was ordained as an Elder and is a retired General Practitioner and will be known to most of the congregation.

The Kirk Session and Congregation welcome their appointment and I am sure our members will give them a warm welcome when they visit.
