Fiona Morrison’s Ordination

Fiona’s ordination takes place at Urquhart & Glenmoriston Church in Drumnadrochit on Friday 16 August 2019. The Presbytery meets at 6:45 pm for the 7:00 pm service.

After ordination, as an Ordained Local Minister, Fiona will remain serving in Drumnadrochit for a year to give her time for more development in pioneer ministry. So many houses are springing up on every plot of grass in the area that more care is necessary for the new residents than all-ready hard-pressed parish ministers are often able to devote attention. More Christians in congregations are needed to come forward to undertake work similar to that in which Fiona will be engaged.

David Sinclair–Mission Partner

The Presbytery’s Mission Partner is to visit from 1st to 5th November 2019

David and his wife Mary were married in 1978, having met through the Student Christian Movement. They have two children who are now in their 30s.

Originally trained as a social worker, and Mary, from Wales, as a special-needs teacher, David entered the ministry with charges in St Andrew’s and Glasgow. He then spent nine years as Secretary to the Church and Nation Committee, and then to the Church and Society Council.

Now David is to work in the head office of the ECCB in Prague, responsible for development of partner relationships. From this position he will have a watching brief on twinning, particularly helping the Czech end.
