The congregation greatly benefited from the preaching of our visiting minister, Rev. Alasdair MacAulay of Tain at the April Communion weekend. The Kirk Session were delighted to welcome into membership, Elise Ayres, Annie Maclean and Annetta Crooks who professed their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ for the first time at the Lord’s Table. The Rev. Dan and Penny Paterson and Rena Maclean, joined the congregation by disjunction certificate. We are conscious of God’s goodness to us as a congregation by increasing the Free North family in this way.
The Kirk Session agreed to reappoint Mr Iain MacLeod and Mr Willie Murray to represent the congregation at Presbytery for the coming year.
Jo Barnard, Kiltarlity, is in the process of applying for the Free Church ministry through the Inverness Presbytery. The College Board have recommended that he has six week placements at Cumbernauld Free Church and also the Free North. Arrangements are currently being made for him to start in the Free North in the near future.
